Best of 2008: Bradford Cox
Bradford Cox, frontman of Deerhunter and Atlas Sound, on Stereolab and doom-wop.
Who was your favorite artist of 2008?
Jana Hunter makes some very haunting doom-wop. I've been listening to her stuff a lot lately. I also really like the Crystal Stilts and Vivian Girls.
Where was the best show you played in 2008?
I really only remember the bad ones. I'm pretty self-critical about live performances. My favorite experience live would be joining Stereolab on stage for their encore. Jamming with Stereolab is something that would make the teenage me hyperventilate. I high-fived myself for that one.
What was the best 12" single of 2008?
