Atlas Sound: Bedroom Databank Vol. 1-4


Deerhunter is a indie rock band from Atlanta, Georgia (which seems to be a nice little hotspot for great bands.) They describe themselves as "ambient punk" which sums up their sound nicely although it does sometimes incorporate other genres such as shoegaze, electronica and psychedelic rock. Whatever the original mix is pristine indie pop is usually what ends up as the framework leaving a much more commercially digestible byproduct as a result. Bradford Cox is the vocalist for that band and also does solo work under the moniker "Atlas Sound."

Mr. Cox has been awesome enough to offer not just one free album, but FOUR free albums for download on his blog. Each album is a different volume of his "Bedroom Databank" series and includes a bunch of home recordings and rare work. Most of the songs where recorded on computer or a TASCAM DP-08. Some controversy has occurred with the release of these recordings when Sony music apparently requested that some of the files be deleted. He has since uploaded the files with new links and requested that anyone who wants to share their thoughts about what Sony did should contact them. Get the links to all four albums after his reaction to what happened and check his blog for full details. Hurry because you'll never know if Sony will take these links down as well:


"The file Atlas_Sound_Bedroom_Databank_Vol_2.zip identified by the key (17q0oya5mkx84ow) has been deleted by Sony Music Entertainment on November 26, 2010 at 12:44pm.

Apparently Sony Music Owns my bedroom. Feel free to call or email and let them know what you think. I can understand them requesting for me to remove a cover but the only one I can imagine that happening with is Dylan. Which was on Vol. 1. Which was not deleted. I am re-uploading the files now. I'll put new links in the posts."
