Atlas Sound — Parallax

Reviewed by yewknee

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.
