Editorial Reviews

2008 solo album from Deerhunter front man/provocateur Bradford Cox. Here on Let the Blind..., Cox moved out of dank nightclubs filled with eternal existential drone Punk, and relaxed at home in his Grant Park, Atlanta bedroom. This is, essentially, a bedroom album, mixing the Garage Rock and Ambient Electronic influences previously explored with Deerhunter in a new context, with newly explored recording techniques, mainly lap-top based. The result is 14 songs of melancholy and mania. This is a true solo album, entirely created and produced by a single person. Kranky.

Richly textured, intensely personal fusion of dream and noise pop from Atlas Sound, a side project of Bradford Cox, otherwise a member of Deerhunter. The intensely personal part you may or may not get at first, if ever without an explanation (available online, fortunately), since some of the lyrics are so personal as to be abstract, but then those lyrics are often lost in the mix, obscured by instrumentation, static or droning sounds, anyway. Let the Blind Lead Those Who Can See But Cannot Feel can be seen as an album akin to David Bowie's Low, where the feeling one gets from the music presented is as important than anything said (or sung) directly. That said, the music here is by turns beautiful and unsettling, and for a record that's so highly experimental for the most part, it's also highly listenable. Worth checking out for fans of adventrous pop. Standout cuts: "Recent Bedroom," "River Card," "Cold As Ice" and "Ativan."

Truly great album. I highly recommend to anyone that they pick up the 20 track cd import or double-vinyl version. The 6 extra tracks are totally essential to the whole of the album. Without em' is like watching a western in full-screen.

I really liked Bradford Cox with Deerhunter on Halcyon Digest, and heard one of his solo songs from this album on Pandora. It has some nice sounds though a bit more venturing into different combinations - less structured, a little less melodic, but interesting.

Bradford Cox is really adept at channeling the lonely child within- perhaps he's not even channeling at all. After reading many stories of Cox's gruelling surgeries and subsequent isolations in hospital from a young age, his inside-looking-out ruminations are crystal clear. In "Quarantined" he laments "....I am waiting to be changed..." a profound statement that illuminates this fine record.

I first heard Atlas Sound last year when I bought "Logos" on vinyl. I'm always keeping my ear out for new sounds, and Atlas Sound certainly shook my sonic world up. Just recently I sampled some bits of "Let the Blind..", and was intrigued, so I got it. I like it, although I think it will grow on me even more as time goes by. I have revisited it almost everyday this week(it strangely keeps drawing me back), and Ive found something new I like about it every time. While it's not as foused and strong (song-wise) as "Logos", the interesting sonic textures make it a worthwile listen. There's a lot less guitar on this album than "Logos". The synths and electronic percussion suggest a dreamy Tangerine Dream-like feel on some tracks. But at the heart of this record is Bradford Cox' otherworldly subdued vocals. There's not a lot of angst going on here, but at times you can feel a lot of passion. Other times he sounds detached, which I think is more of what he's going for. I don't really know how to categorize Atlas Sound, as I am older than the typical demographic for this music, but it's definitely a unique and refreshing sound.
