Deerhunter and Atlas Sound's Bradford Cox has long professed his love for Stereolab, in particular 1999's Cobra and Phases Group Play Voltage in the Milky Night, his favorite album by the band. He went so far as to effusively explicate upon its merits on a Deerhunter blog post back in 2007. In an impassioned manner akin to the prime years of the fiery late gonzo journalist Lester Bangs, he also excoriated the publications that panned the album. More

Bedroom Databank Vol. 4

Self-Released

Dec 21, 2010

With Vol. 4 of Atlas Sound’s Bedroom Databank series, Bradford Cox drives home a key element of his raison d’etre: If he feels moved to do it, why shouldn’t he? Who says that electronic workouts can’t exist next to cross-legged folk? More

Self-Released

Dec 20, 2010

The prodigiously prolific Bradford Cox delivers another new set of tracks with Vol. 3 of his Bedroom Databank series, recorded this year at various locations. For a group of such disparate tunes, they generally mesh for a pleasing whole that seems to offer something new with each run-through. More

Self-Released

Dec 17, 2010

Bradford Cox’s second volume of home recordings from 2010 prove to be more entertaining than the first collection of songs, and in their own way aspire to the same heights as Deerhunter or the more polished Atlas Sound records.

Atlas Sound at The Los Angeles Natural History Museum, Los Angeles, CA

January 8th, 2010

Jan 15, 2010

Dinosaurs are totally rock and roll. Think about it: A group of outsiders appeared—seemingly out of nowhere—made a huge impact on history in a very short period, got wildly mixed reviews (Rock critics: direct descendents of cavemen?), and then vanished. In this context, it makes sense that the Los Angeles Natural History Museum would play host to musical acts during the first Friday of the Month program, kicking off the year with Under the Radar cover artist, Bradford Cox (aka Atlas Sound).

Sep 22, 2009

Kurt Cobain once remarked caustically that he would only wear a tie-dyed t-shirt if it were made with "the urine of Phil Collins and the blood of Jerry Garcia." Perhaps he was rolling over in his grave when Sufjan Stevens and his band opened the main stage of ATP day 2 decked out in oversized tie-dyes. Delivering a set comprised of 2004's Seven Swans from start to finish, Stevens announced that, "this is a set for your hangovers." More
