Bradford Cox Gets An Apology From Sony

And so the somewhat swift, expected resolution to The Case Of The Bedroom Artist vs. The Misguided Multinational Corporation: Sony fucked up, and is sorry for pulling Atlas Sound’s Bedroom Databank mixtapes. Their words, via email, via P4K: “The Bradford Cox tracks were mistakenly removed. We advised Mediafire that the titles were mistakenly taken down. We have communicated all of this to Bradford Cox and his manager. We apologize for any inconvenience.” No harm, no foul, except to the idea that major labels were finally starting to wise up with respect to public relations and pick their battles more carefully. There’s always next year for that.
