Atlas Sound: Youth!

Wednesday, March 14th, 2012

Last month Atlas Sound toured through the Northwest and played shows with fellow Georgia residents Frankie Broyles and Carnivores. It was one rockin’ good time with music that expanded brain cells until they popped like bubble wrap. Half-way through the Atlas Sound happening Bradford Cox dedicated a song to Calvin Johnson, then proceeded to cover the Beat Happening song “Youth” (which originally appeared on the cassette-only Three Tea Breakfast EP, now folded into the Beat Happening [KLP001] album). Above is a photograph by Allison Newberry of Bradford and Calvin backstage after the show. A delightful couple who collaborated in Olympia when Atlas Sound visited the Dub Narcotic Studio and recorded “Atlas Shrugged” [DBN113], a 7″ 45 rpm phonograph record in our Dub Narcotic Disco Plate series.
