Product Description

BBC Review

Bradford Cox is clearly not busy enough in his day job. The Deerhunter singer’s Atlas Sound solo project has now produced two albums and half a dozen EPs of pop psychedelia in less than two years, while Deerhunter themselves managed to release a pair of albums in 2008. The man has creativity to burn.

That much is obvious from Logos, Atlas Sound’s sturdy second set, which fires off melodies from all angles, each track dripping with invention. It’s not a straightforward listen, usually relying on atmosphere and layered sonics rather than recognisable structure, but it’s still pop – weird pop.

The first Atlas Sound album, Let the Blind Lead Those Who Can See but Cannot Feel, was heavy on the noodly sketches. A pleasant, watery listen, it created moods without getting its hands dirty with anything so infra dig as a conventional song, and that suited Cox’s experimental urges. But Logos shows progress; a desire to drop the abstracts for a bit and engage with the listener.

Most glaringly, there are a couple of guest spots. Cox recently toured Europe with American pop explorers Animal Collective, and struck up a rapport with their Noah Lennox, aka ambient harmonist Panda Bear. Their collaboration Walkabout appears here, chugging prettily along, with Lennox sounding as usual like Brian Wilson singing from the bottom of the Mariana Trench. It’s lovely stuff.

The other surprise visitor is Stereolab’s Laetitia Sadier, Cox’s teen idol, who trills gamely through the pulsating Quick Canal, an eight-minute epic of reverb coming up against soft synths. It feels like Saint Etienne going krautrock, and it works.

Away from the star turns, An Orchid comes on like a downcast outtake from Love’s Forever Changes, with chiming guitars and an air of the surreal. It’s matched by the disarming Attic Lights, which is similarly psychedelic with its double-tracked violin veering around a tune.

There’s a taste of Deerhunter in the distorted pop of Kid Klimax and scuzzed-up country beats of the title track, but the overriding flavour of the album is of a creator set free. Cox says it’s near enough a one-take record, which is hard to square with some of these intricate arrangements, but you can believe him because it sounds so fresh. --Matthew Horton

4.0 out of 5 stars More than just another side project 20 Oct 2009
Format:Audio CD
For those who don't know Atlas Sound is the solo project of Deerhunter's Bradford James Cox. `Logos' represents his second solo release after 2008's `Let the Blind Lead Those Who Can See But Cannot Feel'. It is a well judged piece of dreamy pop. Opener `The Light That Failed' is an atmospheric and sombre affair with echoing vocals and strange squelching sounds in the background of the track. `An Orchid' is gentle and strangely thoughtful whereas first single `Walkabout' represents a moment of fun within the opening salvos of the album. `Criminals' could almost be considered as Bradford's version of folk with soft drums and gently repeating guitars. One of the highlights of the album is `Sheila' which is an honest and emotional insight into Cox's views on love, life and death. The title track eventually closes out the album in energetic style. This album as a whole cements Atlas Sound's status as more than just another side project and it produces some really lovely moments along the way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Magnificent Music 2 Nov 2009
By S. Bidwell - Published on
Format:Audio CD
A little while back I was fortunate enough to see Deerhunter open up for Nine Inch Nails. Although I was totally entranced by their performance, I could see that a lot of the people around me were not. But this isn't a critique of them - indeed, a part of me understands why they were disgruntled. Deerhunter, like Atlas Sound, is not the kind of music to thrash around to (like a good deal of NIN's outstanding catalog). My first listen to Logos was done with my body horizontal on a couch with a good pair of headphones. This, like so much of the music I love, is the best way to experience this album.

I've read in one place or another that Brandon Cox (the brainchild of Atlas Sound) is a huge fan of doo-wop music, and it shows on some of the album's best tracks. These songs, and others, are catchy and deep. Mr. Cox's musical knowledge obviously deep, and he seems to draw upon it in his own music. He's well versed in dream pop, shoegazer, classic rock, alternative rock, progressive, pop - you name it.

Give this album a try; you won't be disappointed. If you're hungry for more (and you will be), check out Deerhunter's albums and Atlas Sound's first album (and their recently released EP).

In my mind, this is what indie music is all about.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highest quality indie dream rock 28 Oct 2009
By Alex - Published on
Format:Audio CD
4.5 stars

Deerhunter frontman Bradford James Cox released Logos to quite a bit of fanfare, which makes it one of the one percent of albums that lives up to its indie-hype. Cox seems to have hit the midpoint of several subgenres, suckering in disparate fans with his combination of upbeat harmonies, dreamy vocals, ambient synthstruments, distorted guitars, and, of course, the indie rock standby: semi-nonsensical lyrics that float on the music and emerge from background only to adorn it with solidly fun punchlines. Even the first listen reveals its flawless nature.


Walkabout, featuring Panda Bear of Animal Collective fame, starts out with a softly cavorting intro that leads into the most poppy music on the album.

Shelia is the standout song, easily engaging the listener's penchant for unique structure, massaging his dream-pop fetish while still feeding his hunger for straight up hard indie rocking.

Quick Canal features Stereolab's Laetitia Sadier and features a sprinkling of echoing electro-sounds that frame Sadier's soft singing beautifully.

Any true music aficionado will find something to like here. As for us, Logos has already earned a spot on our album of the year list.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Other Side of Blind 24 Mar 2010
By Andrew J. Pirie - Published on
Format:Audio CD
Atlas Sound has released another record on the other side of stream of consciousness. While his previous effort was a lucid dream splayed out on a frozen lake - this piece runs the gammit of 50's doo-wop run through a crystalized teen dream. Love it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Listening experience. 11 Nov 2009
By Jason - Published on
Format:Audio CD
I find it strange that I really enjoy this music. It is generally something I wouldn't listen to. I am 34 and my musical tastes over the years have leaned more towards industrial/alternative music. My mainstays were always NIN, Ministry, Revolting Cocks (the old stuff), Thrill Kill Kult, Tool, even Marilyn Manson at one time (uhh yeah). It was when I drove from Orlando to Duluth,Georgia in the summer of 2008 to see NIN that I was exposed to Bradford Cox with Deerhunter when they opened. I was very impressed by their "sound" for lack of a better word. I quickly purchased their cd's and the Atlas Sound releases. I was hooked. I then saw Deerhunter in Orlando earlier this year. The average age of the other people there were at least 10 years younger than me but I didnt care. This album is just a really great piece to just lay down on the couch and just relax (as another reviewer previously mentioned)and listen. I wont go into detail with the tracks. Every track has something to offer. I guess as I am getting older my tastes have changed. I am glad they have. I guess this genre is called shoegaze? I dont know. I call it good. I have discovered other bands in this genre I like as well such as Animal Collective, Panda Bear. If anyone else out there can mention any other bands in this field please tell me! I would appreciate it.
5.0 out of 5 stars I can listen to it a thousand times 13 Sep 2013
By Shishimaru - Published on
This is such an amazing record by Deerhunter, one of my favorite artists. I can listen to this one over and over and never get tired of it!
As for the vinyl version the printing is nice and so is the record sleeve. Definitely one worth having in the collection!
