Album review: Atlas Sound, “Parallax”


The dreamy, atypically pared-down “Parallax” is Atlas Sound’s most cohesive work — it feels like an album, not a collection of found sounds tied together with reverb. It’s often beautiful and awkward — and sometimes just awkward.

Everything floats by and nothing hits hard, even great songs such as the ’60s retro folk exercise “Terra Incognita,” the ambient standout “Flagstaff” and the gentle, trippy “Modern Aquatic Nightsongs,” a gurgly, ephemeral pop track that comes exactly as advertised.
