"A largely ambient meditation on romantic obsession full of densely layered electronics and guitars that sound as if they were beamed in from some haunted parallel universe." The Fader ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ CD Out Now: Track Listing: 1. A Ghost Story 2. Recent Bedroom 3. River Card 4. Quarantined 5. On Guard 6. Winter Vacation 7. Cold As Ice 8. Scraping Past 9. Small Horror 10. Ready, Set, Glow 11. Bite Marks 12. After Class 13. Ativan 14. Let the Blind Lead Those Who Can See But Cannot Feel

4AD is thrilled to announce the release of ’Let The Blind Lead Those Who Can See But Cannot Feel’ by Atlas Sound on May 5th. We have licensed the album outside North America from Kranky and the 4AD version will be distinguished by an additional disc of new material. There will be an extensive European tour throughout May to coincide. Atlas Sound is the solo moniker of 25 year old Deerhunter frontman / provocateur Bradford Cox. It is also the earliest incarnation for his musical adventures. Although “ Let the Blind …” is the Georgian’s debut album, the genesis of this music can be traced back to when Bradford was a kid, more specifically when in sixth grade ; a time when he discovered through reading a Beck interview that his family’s disused karaoke machine could be used as a rudimentary multi-tracking device. Furthermore, the darker childhood experience of spending an entire summer on a children’s hospital ward undergoing operations also (understandably) plays a pivotal part in colouring his music. Bradford is everything with Atlas Sound and what you hear is a complex, expansive bedroom recording. Totally absorbed and working at a prolific rate, he channels a stream of consciousness, leaving the scorched beauty of his vocals raw and untreated. Bradford cites the “ideas that I can’t make work with a five piece rock band,” as the basis of his solo work and unrestricted, he makes a currently unparalleled meld of garage rock and ambient electronics. ’Let The Blind Lead Those Who Can See But Cannot Feel’ is a serious body of work that manages to combine seemingly incongruous sound elements to make a wonderfully cohesive pop narrative. It is also undoubtedly one of the year’s first truly great albums.

"Let the blind lead..." will surely be my album of the year...unless you release another one by the end of 2008!Your "Pop" sensitivity and your "way out of this world" production are simply devastating...Also many thanks to you and to 4AD for the cherry on the cake!

you are pretty much the only reason i am going to pitchfork this year.

Jun 12 2008 7:27 AM

Please check my band Sharing Night:

http://www. myspace. com/sharingnight

Comment back and let me know if you like it or not...Even if you don’t like it, please just let me know and give me your honest opinion/feedback.

Also, I am trying to get a gig (anywhere) and haven’t been successful yet. If you know of any club near where you live or have connections to one (Especially in Chicago) please help me out. So far I have only been able to perform at a weekly open mic night and it is only 3 songs per time so it’s not like a real showcase, which is something I would like to try to do next.

Thanks for your time…
