Sony Yanks Cox’s Atlas Sound Demos

Damn! Pretty cold to
do that on the Thanksgiving weekend holiday, folks…. Luckily Bradford
Cox has already posted new download links.

 

By Fred Mills

 

If you’re a Bradford (Deerhunter) Cox watcher, you’ve
probably been pretty stoked over the past few days since Cox has been posting a
series of demos for his other project, Atlas Sound. Titled Bedroom Databank, he’s already up to Volume 4, which he posted for
download at his official blog yesterday morning. Some of the material was fresh off the hard drive, in fact, as production notes indicate it was recorded on Nov. 24.

 

Then this morning at Cox’s blog, the following post
appeared:

 

“Your Files Have Been Deleted”

Apparently Sony Music
Owns my bedroom. Feel free to call or email and let them know what you think. I
can understand them requesting for me to remove a cover but the only one I can
imagine that happening with is Dylan. Which was on Vol. 1. Which was not
deleted. I am re-uploading the files now. I’ll put new links in the posts
.

 

 

Cox also posted the info transmitted to him by Sony, which
has accused him of “unauthorized reproduction and distribution of copyrighted
sound recordings owned or exclusively distributed by Sony Music.” It appears that
Sony deleted Vols. 2 and 3 – along with Vol. 4, which we presume Cox had posted
for download sometime between Wednesday evening and today.

 

Luckily, Cox has made good on his word and has posted new
links to the collections of demos. Here are the details, along with the links
to the relevant pages with additional text and the (current) download links.
Grab the demos while you can in case the Cox-Sony war gets nasty!
