New (Free!) Atlas Sound Digital Single

Atlas Sound is the side project of Deerhunter frontman Bradford Cox, and we would argue that it's probably compelling enough to not even warrant the "side" moniker. While the band tends to be a bit more abstract and ambient than Deerhunter, the compositions are equally compelling in their capacity for creativity and the unique textures that Cox manages to generate in every tune.

Given that, we were psyched to discover on the Deerhunter/Atlas Sound/Lotus Plaza blog that Cox has just released a free Atlas Sound digital single entitled "Solo, Or The Square". The A-Side is an awesome synth driven number with a hypnotically repetitive lead line plinking away under Cox's layered vocals and handclaps. The B-Side, "Memorial Corridor", gives the impression of being a somewhat staticky/droney number until about half way through, when it breaks out into a painfully catchy acoustic-driven melody. Them's some tasty tunes.

You really can't get a better deal than free, and these tunes are awesome to boot! Check it out now...
