As part of their Jazz & Grooves concert series, UPenn has announced a November 3rd concert with Atlas Sound and School of Seven Bells (SVIIB). Atlas Sound, the independent project of Deerhunter frontman Bradford Cox, released his melancholic debut record Let The Blind Lead Those Who Can See But Cannot Feel, in 2008 – his most recent release is 2011′s Parallax. SVIIB’s latest album, Ghostory, came out earlier this year in February. Tickets for the show will be available starting tomorrow at 9 AM. Admission prices for students are $5 in advance, $10 at the door, and $15 for the public; more information about the show can be found here. Below, watch the video for “Half Asleep” from SVIIB’s 2008 record Alpinisms.
As if putting out one of 2010′s best albums Halcyon Digest wasn’t enough, Deerhunter’s Bradford Cox today released a free collection of songs on his web site called Bedroom Databank, Volume 1 as his “other band” (AKA “solo project”) Atlas Sound. The album includes many of today’s hit styles that the kids are really digging including some charming stoner lullabies, chillwave folk singalongs, noodly tropicalismo computer game noise jams and a couple of covers including Bob Dylan’s “This Wheel’s On Fire” and a cover of “Freak Train” by Philly’s constant hit maker Kurt Vile.
