Atlas Sound - 4 Albums for the Price of None

If any of y'all listen to Deerhunter and enjoy the music (especially the more recent stuff), it might be wise to check out Bradford Cox's (lead singer, guitarist) solo work.  He calls it Atlas Sound and here's his blog.

But more importantly, he just dropped 4 albums, Bedroom Databank Vol.s 1-4, which all of us can download for free.

Vol. 1

Vol. 2

Vol. 3

Vol. 4

Personally, I recommend making some hot cocoa and listening.  Solid work from an amazing person...

The Ting Tings, "Hands"

This has been "old-news" for a little while now (2 months???) but I still hadn't heard the track yet.  The Ting Tings are getting ready to release their sophomore effort soon, but to hold us over they dropped "Hands".

If you're anxious to hear it, you can find it on their facebook page along with a remix by Passion Pit.

To be honest, I don't think the track is amazing.  A little monotonous and tired sounding.  I'm a little bit worried about the followup to their debut We Started Nothing.  It's hard to repeat such awesome catchy-ness, unless you're Katy Perry or Lady Gaga of course.  But, let's keep our fingers crossed.
