Choice Cuts: Top Acoustic Songs from Bradford Cox of Deerhunter/Atlas Sound
A defender of the loud, Cox is equally as incredible unplugged
6. Atlas Sound: “Amplifiers”
Released in late 2011, Parallax is Cox’s most recent Atlas Sound effort to date. It is also his most polished and seasoned record overall.
But none of the studio gloss that Cox uses on Parallax dilutes his songwriting talent. “Amplifiers” is a hushed, unassuming beauty of a song.
He never puts a foot wrong, driving the song along with a simple but urgent acoustic riff.
Coupled with quiet doubling of the riff on the bass, “Amplifiers” creeps onto you, surprising you with its brilliance.
