The Daily Choice: Atlas Sound – Doctor (Five Discs Cover)
I’m still vacillating on my Atlas Sound/Deerhunter thoughts. Still trying to really grasp (after a near prolific couple of years of production) Bradford Cox’s objective with these two interconnected musical experiments. I’m not always a fan, but always find myself curious about what Mr. Cox is going to produce next.
Such as this cover track “Doctor” off one of his always entertaining Virtual 7″. It embraces the 60s pop that Atlas Sound occasionally strays in to more fully and what emerges from this awkward hug is genuinely head-nodder of a track. A sort of gritty ode to rafter-packed high school dances. It’s a beaut of a song, a real contender for my possible “Best Of…” list(s).
