new atlas sound :: “holiday”
Thanks to the commenter who alerted me to Bradford Cox's updates on the Deerhunter blog, including a new virtual 7" that features a pretty, but perversely dark, little pop ditty called "Holiday." The real news, though, is Bradford's response to a kid who apparently raided his Mediafire folder (which Bradford mistakenly left unprotected) and leaked the demos from Atlas Sound's upcoming Logos LP, as well as Deerhunter's Weird Era Cont., which was the "surprise" that Cox hinted would be included with the physical release of Microcastle. Oh, and there were apparently some childhood photos of Bradford in there too. Ouch. The Weezy-quoting Cox has some choice words for the offender(s), which he drops in a pair of uncomfortable and intensely personal blog posts. Lost in all this, of course, is the fact that "Holiday," although fucked up and a little scary, is actually a really good song:
UPDATE: In a post titled "Logos (R.I.P.) 2007-2008" that has since been removed, Bradford posted a link to download Logos and basically says he's going to scrap the album altogether: "Fuck this shit. I can just make another album. It's not finished and now it never will be."
