Bradford Cox

Atlas Sound is the solo moniker of Deerhunter frontman and provocateur Bradford Cox, so named since 1994, when a sixth-grade Bradford made recordings on a karaoke cassette machine bearing the words “Atlas Sound.” The first Atlas Sound album, Let The Blind Lead Those Who See But Cannot Feel, emerged in 2008. As Cox’s tirelessly updated blog attests, with its caverns of freely available covers, demos and mixtapes, recording processes are central to his music, colouring the intimate feel of Atlas Sound in a manner more apparent than when writing under the guise of Deerhunter.
