Bradford Cox Receives Apology from Sony

Bedroom Databank Albums Re-Posted on Musician’s Blog

Nov 30, 2010 Atlas Sound Bookmark and Share

Last week, we talked about Bradford Cox’s free downloads of his Atlas Sound lo-fi bedroom recordings, titled Bedroom Databank and released in four installments via Cox’s blog. While the first three volumes went up on the site with ease, Cox received copyright inforcement emails from Sony Music after posting the fourth album; Sony then removed three of the four Bedroom Databank releases from the musician’s blog.

Today, Pitchfork reported that Sony contacted Cox and his management to apologize about the situation, which apparently was a misunderstanding—according to Sony.

This is what Sony had to say about the issue: “The Bradford Cox tracks were mistakenly removed. We advised Mediafire that the titles were mistakenly taken down. We have communicated all of this to Bradford Cox and his manager. We apologize for any inconvenience.”

All four installments of Bedroom Databank have been re-posted on Cox’s blog, where they are still available for download free of charge.
