In what can only be described as "a brilliant PR move", Sony deleted all the songs, lost tapes, works in progress and covers Bradford Cox has been sharing with his fans.
Here's what Bradford had to say about it:
"Apparently Sony Music Owns my bedroom. Feel free to call or email and let them know what you think. I can understand them requesting for me to remove a cover but the only one I can imagine that happening with is Dylan. Which was on Vol. 1. Which was not deleted. I am re-uploading the files now. I'll put new links in the posts."
I am now high-fiving Bradford Cox across the internet.
You do the same and download all 4 volumes of the Atlas Sound Bedroom Databank at the Atlas Sound and Deerhunter blog.
