Music Monday – Old
and New: Heart / Atlas Sound

Atlas Sound returns with a formal release on 4AD this November. ‘Terra Incognita’ is the first cut to be released from the record and it leaves me lost for words… A beautifully underplayed and sensitive song that never wears thin. Gentle strings cushion the delicate stylings of Bradford Cox’s acoustic guitar and at 3:48, when the song takes a wonderful pop turn, Bradford does what he does best and the track builds and lifts to heavenly levels.

‘Dreamboat Annie’, is the magical title track from Heart’s 1976 debut and is a perfect example of Heart’s wonderful awareness of melody and instrumentation. The dreamy vocals coat a jangly banjo and typically soulful acoustic arrangement. This is a work of perfection.
