RIYL = Deerhunter, Panda Bear
Bradford Cox is on a role. Following up is solid solo debut as Atlas Sound last year along with the magnificent double release from his alpha band, Deerhunter, Logos turns out to be another notch in his steadily growing list of accomplishments. The guy just has a musical Midas touch going on right now. Logos improves heavily on Atlas Sound’s already sturdy debut. This time around the ethereal pop seems to resonate even more, taking cues from Microcastle and his contributors, Cox’s solo work is really coming into its own as an individual entity. I really love the guest spots by Panda Bear and Laetitia Sadier. The whole idea of indie rock guest spots, mimicking the more common occurrence in hip hop, is a terrific trend me think. The albums pacing is magnificent, with each song flowing guilessly into the next. Anywho, I’m not going to waste too many words on this thing. Logos stands for itself and it won’t be long before the album achieves a universal acceptance and critical acclaim. It is really just that great - a fact that simply can’t be avoided.
