The dronier moments aim for impressionistic but sometimes end up half-baked — unnecessary drudgery, since Cox’s fully formed songs are impressionistic enough. That said, I do feel that these kinds of soft-focus bedroom-rock albums get too easily written off as breezy footnotes. It doesn’t help that Cox has been posting freshly recorded Atlas Sound tracks every few days on his blog, mostly good ones, though the pace at which he produces new material can make the songs he’s already released seem insignificant. In truth they’re merely humble, unassuming, lingering just long enough to hint at something greater.
