It doesn't seem possible that anyone could put a new spin on the Americana thing, but with this latest offering from Adam Adam, that notion can be put to rest. Part folk, part Americana and part experimental lo-fi, these three songs explore new territories in each. Recalling the bleakest, most rustic moments of 16 Horsepower, "Black Mountain (Sore Tooth)" is hauntingly dark, like a sepia-toned lithograph depicting a stark, lonely scene, while "Monster Monster" is a candlelit pop song that could have been written in a nineteenth century mining camp to stave away boredom while a winter storm rages outside. "Sleepers Sleep" ends on an upbeat, rather than desperate, note and sounds like an archaic take on indie pop without foreknowledge of such a thing.
