It's unusual for a recording artist to embark on a tour in which they open for themselves, but that's essentially what Bradford Cox has done. Over 31 dates, his solo configuration, Atlas Sound, will be opening for Deerhunter, his experimental-rock outfit. As money-saving measures go, it's pretty smart, but as a means of conserving energy while traversing two continents, it's stupidly counter-productive, but then Cox threw out the rock-star playbook years ago. One minute, he's a hazy-pop purveyor (2008's Microcastle); the next, a brash garage rocker (2013's Monomania). Deerhunter's new record, Fading Frontier, which features Broadcast's James Cargill, reconciles his multiple personalities to uneven, if intriguing effect. If "Snakeskin" rocks like John Lee Hooker on Ecstasy, other songs conjure up Peter Gabriel in silvery-synth mode. KATHY FENNESSY
