Deerhunter frontman Bradford Cox's solo project Atlas Sound has been added to the 35 Denton lineup, as have Purling Hiss, Dinosaur Feathers, Night Beats, Chapter 24, Finn Riggins Aan, Races and Twin Tigers.
If you haven't already seen it, may I direct you to this interview Cox did last fall, mainly for his thoughts on a maligned genre:
"Chillwave came along, and it turned ambient music into this perfume that overwhelmed the room. It used to feel therapeutic, but then it started to feel like people would put anything through three delay pedals. I think people overplay the ambience in my work, but I don't mind. I hope nobody associates me with fucking chillwave, though. It's a non-factor. I play rock 'n' roll."
