New Reviews: Atlas Sound Embraces Pop on 'Parallax'

Also: Stream new music by Jack White, Amy Winehouse, Pusha T, Rush and more

Atlas Sound, 'Parallax'
By |

In this week's slate of Rolling Stone reviews, Simon Vozick-Levinson praises Parallax, Deerhunter frontman Bradford Cox's latest album under the name Atlas Sound. The record pushes Cox further in the direction of unabashed pop, with him singing confidently about modern love with a "molten-candy croon that could almost belong to a Fifties teen idol." Also, Will Hermes digs Jack White's bluesy interpretation of U2's classic "Love Is Blindness" and Jody Rosen is disappointed by "Like Smoke," a posthumous single by Amy Winehouse that sounds like a transparent cash-grab.
