Atlas Sound — Parallax
I'm not going to be able to properly articulate the differences between this album, Logos, the volumes of Bedroom Recordings or the last Deerhunter record without sounding like a bit of an idiot. The same quiet, cool, somewhat introspective, shoegaze vibe is still here; although it feels more upfront about its pop tendencies at times. In the end, it's an Atlas Sound record -- it's a little different from the others, but still springing from the same brilliant mind as the previous. If you're already a fan, you'll love it. If you're not, this isn't the worst way to be introduced to the offerings of Bradford Cox.
