Adam Green-Minor Love

Posted October 29, 2010 By admin

Going into this album, I knew very little of Adam Green. The only song of his I was really familiar with was Jessica, and that was mainly because of who it was about more than the singer behind it. But, when I saw Adam had a new album out and heard it was a more serious album than any of his previous ones, I decided to give it a chance. Am I ever glad I did, this is one of my favorites of 2010 so far. From the first track, I could tell this was going to be a different kind of album than I expected based on what I knew about Green. Breaking Locks, the first track on the album, is a self-deprecating somber tune that is lo-fi, as is the rest of the album. Boss Inside is easily my favorite song on the album, and it is open to many different interpretations, but most likely, you’ll come to the conclusion it’s a tragically sad song about someone who seems to be lost, whether it be in love or substance, or both. Not all the songs are sad and somber though, some of them, such as Goblin, Cigarettes Burn Forever, and Castles and Tassels are upbeat and mostly silly like his previous work. All in all, this is a great balanced album that most people can find something on that they enjoy. I may be biased towards this album, but if someone asked me where to start with Adam Green, I would definitely point them to this album, and tell them to work their way back from there.

Change of direction

Posted October 28, 2010 By admin

I’ve really been neglecting blogging recently,and I’ve been trying to figure out why. I’ve come up with this: sometimes I feel like blogging about things other than music. I am an amateur photographer, a sports fan, and a lover of books, so why should I limit myself to only music? So, I’ve decided to kind of put a little twist on the blog here. Most of the postings will still be primarily music related, but a couple a week most likely will be about other topics, whether it be something as simple as a picture(s) I’ve taken recently, a sports take about my favorite Minnesota teams, or a book I’ve recently read (Sammy Davis Jr. bio currently), or anything else I feel like at the moment. I’ve made another decision as well: while I love receiving e-mails from artists and artists reps, I primarily started this blog to spread music I loved and wanted other people to explore, and it’s kind of turned into a blog about new upcoming musicians I really don’t have a connection to. While I love helping talented, relatively unknown musicians get some exposure, it’s really almost taken me away from what this blog started out as. I will still post about musicians I’ve received e-mails about, so please continue to send them, but the posts about them might just not come as often. I want to start posting more about musicians I’m passionate about and have loved for years. I’ll be posting more live shows and unreleased/studio demo stuff as well, as I think a lot of people love to hear musicians in an element other than the studio album. Well, thats my rant (so to speak), later tonight I’ll be posting a concert I attended a while ago, so keep an eye out for that. Thanks for reading, it’s always appreciated!
