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.

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.

Highlights:

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.

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.

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.

The genealogy of rock is a difficult business. Some acts, like the Rolling Stones, established an idiom which is powerful and easy to imitate: consequently, we hear their influence everywhere, so much so that we hardly need to call something "Stonesy". However, one of the somewhat hidden influences on some of the most "left-of-center" American music of the last 40 years is more difficult to pronounce upon, partially because the "image" of the band goes against what indie stands for in the minds of listeners. I refer, though it is not an "of course", to none other than the Beach Boys. Products of a Southern California "sundown town", micromanaged by their father in a career that began with cheesy rip-offs of Chuck Berry and went on to theme songs for Republican presidential candidates, we might well doubt that Brian Wilson and co. could have had a salutary effect on any iconoclastic musicians.

And yet so many clever but inward-looking indie auteurs could not be without this source material of beautiful harmonies and emotional turmoil. Pere Ubu's David Thomas has been unabashed in citing the Beach Boys as a major inspiration for his "avant-garage". In a younger generation, Bradford Cox (leader of Atlanta's Deerhunter), with his eclectic side-project music released under the name "Atlas Sound" is clearly deriving much from *Pet Sounds* and other high points of the Wilsonian oeuvre. *Logos*, the second of three Atlas Sound releases to date, fully lives up to the compositional brilliance of the Beach Boys: songs like "Walkabout" take modern electronic technology and make the 'orchestrated pop' concept work for it. Though Cox can be somewhat uneven, I think it says something when one of the weaker tracks on an album features Stereolab's Laetitia Sadier, and so it is here. Beautiful and accessible music of the American now.
