First a spooky new Atlas Sound track called Coffin Trick promptly followed by a 55 minute DJ set creatively titled October Micromix. Nothing more just a quick spurt of Halloween themed action on the Deerhunter/Atlas Sound front man Bradford Cox’s blog early this morning.
Coffin Trick is all distorted vocals and slinky guitar, while October Micromix is consistent with Cox’s previous DJ mixes - chilled out, diverse and full of his favourite tracks. This time the mix travels from The Beach Boys to Robert Wyatt via The Supremes, Suicide, and Nico.
If you like what you hear, you can find more micromixes along with demos and new tracks for download all over the deerhunter / atlas sound / lotus plaza blog. Plus the brilliant new Deerhunter album Microcastles will be in stores from October 28th. Can’t wait that long? It is available now for download from pretty much everywhere (both legally and leaked).
