Choice Cuts: Top Acoustic Songs from Bradford Cox of Deerhunter/Atlas Sound
A defender of the loud, Cox is equally as incredible unplugged
5. Atlas Sound: “Mona Lisa”
“Mona Lisa,” taken off of Volume 3, comes at the other end of the Bedroom Databank spectrum. A fully formed, irresistibly catchy song, Cox would later re-record it for his next official Atlas Sound album, Parallax.
While Cox has always been fascinated with ambiguity and noise in music, “Mona Lisa” brings his pop sensibilities right to the fore. And boy oh boy can he write a mean pop song.
Placed alongside the beautiful instrumentals that also occupy the Bedroom Databank series, “Mona Lisa” shows Cox’s amazing versatility.
