In a recent interview, controversial Deerhunter frontman Bradford Cox claimed that the Atlanta band's 2007 breakout album, Cryptograms, was recorded in a "hypernostalgic" state of adolescence. For his solo turn as Atlas Sound, Cox regresses even further.Opening with a child's ghost story, the music wraps itself in a shoegaze gauze. "Quarantined" melds distorted Flaming Lips–style drums to twinkling nimbuses, "Scraping Past" sounds like a Kid A orphan (a good thing), and a Loveless smog pervades all. In flashing back, Cox smears just the right amount of Vaseline on the lens.
