Deerhunter vocalist's solo project Atlas Sound delivers some technical and musical magic on his newest full length Parallax. Each track arrives and departs with maturity and patience, traversing a route not unlike The The in its heyday, replete with erudite vocals from Bradford Cox that quietly mutate from Death From Above 1979's Sebastien Grainger to U2's Bono. Closing the album with one of the best tracks, Lightsworks, assures repeated plays and signal that this cat knows what he is doing. For those parts of the planet with discernible changes of season, Parallax is a welcome record for our darkening days.
