First Listen: Parallax by Atlas Sound
By Mike Berlin
Is it time to embark on your mid-week musical soul-searching yet? The New York Times thinks so! Almost a full week before Out's favorite trippy, asexual andro-rocker, Bradford Cox, releases his latest album, Parallax (under the moniker Atlas Sound), the Grey Lady is streaming the whole shebang for free. Already, we're loving "Mona Lisa," a surprisingly straightforward piano-ey pop turn with a dreamy chorus draped, naturally, with Cox's soporific vocals. "Te Amo," a track lush with multiple protracted guitar riffs, sounds both intergalactic and juvenile. Having a hard time conceptualizing it? Go on, give it a play here.
