Let the Blind Lead Those Who Can See but Cannot Feel
(Kranky)

The debut solo album by Deerhunter frontman Bradford Cox travels the same electro-experimental path he often traverses with his full-time band. But where Deerhunter occasionally dips into the indie-rock pool, Let the Blind Lead Those Who Can See but Cannot Feel is a head-on exploration of the many sounds Cox finds lying around his studio. The otherworldly opener "A Ghost Story" samples a seven-year-old boy reciting a tale in 1983, a recording Cox picked up on the Freesound Project website. Then things get weird. Pulled along by wisps of electronic bursts and snatches of rattles and hums, Blind's music collages ride a current of laptop-generated noises that don't really settle into grooves, so much as they just sort of peacefully drift away from them.
