Charles Atlas glides thru the “Photosphere”

Floating somewhere in the orbits of Godspeed You Black Emperor and Sigur Ros, San Francisco artist Charles Atlas (we wonder if that is his real name or if he named himself after the classic muscle man with the comic book ads?) makes music as obtuse yet lyrical as this sentence. Very pretty, soothing guitar based ambient type stuff. And just what I needed today.
