Mike Adams At His Honest Weight: Not No More
The April installment of the Joyful Noise 2013 Flexi Disc Series features an exclusive track from Mike Adams At His Honest Weight!
This Bloomington Indiana-based project responsible for one of our favorite albums of the last several years: “Oscillate Wisely” (St. Ives / Flannelgraph). And in addition to his talents of looking exactly like Clark Kent, Mike Adams possesses a refined ability to write catchy, tasteful numbers, capable withstanding hundreds of listens (we know because we’ve tried). His contribution to the Flexi-Disc Series “Not No More” is an indie-lounge, Morrissey-channeled hit single.
"Not No More" is limited to just 1000 copies on 7” Flexi-Disc. This exclusive track will not be released digitally or in any other format.
Mike Adams at His Honest Weight: Oscillate Wisely
Michael Dwayne Adams has a unique gift for crafting engaging melodies while applying some well-oiled decision-making skills. Not since Low?s Secret Name has an album so easily lent itself to being the perfect accompaniment to either having a full-blown existential crisis or simply making out in the backseat at the local drive-in on a rainy night. The wit and candor of Roger Miller and Morrissey? the faint-inducing crooning of Roy Orbison and Chris Isaac? the ethereal transcendence of Talk Talk and Starflyer 59? the dash-pounding drive of Neu! and The Ramones? the pop ingenuity of Badfinger and Big Star? they all seem to be present in one way or another on Oscillate Wisely. And, not unlike the Cocteau Twins? Tiny Dynamite EP, these captivating jams are blanketed in rich sonic whirlpools that make you feel as though you?ve finally mastered the art of lucid dreaming. As with all St. Ives releases, Oscillate Wisely is made in limited edition hand-wrought (by the artist himself) packaging using only salvaged materials.
