Bradford Cox is on a roll. He just gave us the Halloween-ready “Coffin Trick” (Lilys + bare bones Kinks + Shadow Ring) a couple days ago, but he’s already posted a pair of new songs — “Maybe Logic” and “Airedales.” They’re tied together as the Maybe Logic Virtual 7″, so honor the format and try listening in order. The first, “Maybe Logic,” is a dense 6-minute swirl of upbeat, teeming psychedelics with hand-drum percussion that opens to a bunch of lush waves, whirls and a feedback exit. “Airedales,” on the other hand, is a quieter crystalline music-box lullaby that drifts into spacier realms by its finale.

No, neither are as instantly satisfying as Cox’s work on Microcastles, but it’s good to hear new sounds emerging from his workshop.
