Bradford Cox’s return to the Deerhunter/Atlas Sound/Lotus Plaza blog has been a spectacular one. Yesterday we got Atlas Sound’s Bedroom Databank Vol. 1, and today we have a second album-length set straight out of Cox’s Atlanta bedroom. Well, almost: Cox has indicated that one of these tracks (“Here Come The Trains”) was recorded in the Notown studio, while the rest were all recorded at home during 2010.
It’s mostly familiar ground for fans of Atlas Sound—contemplative acoustic guitar songs mixed in with a minimal electronic direction, although the closing “Here Come The Trains," which clocks in at over 11 minutes long, veers closer to Cox’s work with Deerhunter. And is that a form of Pavement tributary in the title of “Mouth of the Desert” (in regard to that band’s “In The Mouth a Desert”)?
