Released: February 2007
I’ll never forget the disappointment I felt when someone told me that Tyondai Braxton’s screwy, obscured lyrics to this otherworldly song were in fact not “Dinglehopper, dinglehopper, dingle-hopper” but “People won’t be people when they hear this sound/Glowing in the dark on the edge of town”. Still, I’ll definitely concede that his fit better – ‘Atlas’ sounds like something that couldn’t have been written by anyone familiar with the boring old rules of rock’n’roll, with its galloping, militaristic drums and bounding squelch, a kind of alien beat that completely takes you out of yourself.
