Atlas Sound - April 13

This is a little (or rather long) song i made today in the studio as practice with my new setup for the upcoming solo Atlas Sound performances at ATP, with Animal Collective in Europe, and Primevara Sound. This should give you an idea of what to expect of a solo A.S. performance. Its based from a sample I made of Nicolas' broken piano.

After the Deerhunter show at the Market Hotel Friday, I became extremely ill. Lockett and I had both been suffering from a severe flu, but I think exhaustion and too much cigarette smoke pushed me beyond my limits and by Sunday, the 13th I had to go to the emergency room in Manhattan. I honestly felt like I was dying and there is no better time to explore and relive small tears in your past than to have them floating in front of you in a haze of painkillers and i.v. bags.
