One of the latest “true queer art punks” to emerge from the cracked pavement of southern suburban sprawl, Atlas Sound is the solo moniker of Deerhunter frontman / provocateur Bradford Cox. Cox’s unusual talent is the ability to take a wide variety of seemingly incongruous sound elements, and seamlessly meld them into a cohesive pop narrative. On his debut album, Let The Blind Lead Those Who Can See But Cannot Feel, Cox / Sound moves out of dank nightclubs filled with eternal existential drone punk, and relaxes at home in his Grant Park, Atlanta bedroom. And this is, essentially, a bedroom album, a collage, mixing the garage rock and ambient electronic influences previously explored with Deerhunter in a new context, with newly acquired recording techniques, mainly laptop-based.
1.25 | NPR FIRST LISTEN: JOHN CARPENTER’S ‘LOST THEMES’ OUT 2/3 ON SACRED BONES RECORDS; CONVERSATION WITH NEWSWEEK + BAM CAREER RETROSPECTIVE ON SALE NOW
NPR’s First Listen is streaming John Carpenter’s debut solo album Lost Themes, out February 3rd on Sacred Bones Records.
John Carpenter, the Legendary Director and Composer, has been responsible for much of the horror genre’s most striking soundtrack work in the fifteen movies he’s both directed and scored. The themes that drive them can be stripped to a few coldly repeating notes, take on the electrifying thunder of a rock concert, or submerge themselves into exotic, unholy miasmas. It’s work that instantly floods his fans’ musical memory with imagery of a menacing shape stalking a babysitter, a relentless wall of ghost-filled fog, lightning-fisted kung fu fighters, or a mirror holding the gateway to hell. Lost Themes asks Carpenter’s acolytes to visualize their own nightmares.
Carpenter recently sat down with Newsweek to discuss his upcoming album, and he will also make a rare New York appearance at BAM on Thursday, February 5 to discuss his legendary career and celebrate the release of his debut solo album, Lost Themes. Tickets are on sale now.
Listen to Lost Themes over at NPR’s First Listen.
