So, but yeah:
I’m going to summon my courage here and try to describe MIKE ADAMS AT HIS HONEST WEIGHT just a little bit.
On Bandcamp, the genre tagging “Oscillate Wisely”–the epic LP available at St. Ives–is “Boogie Woogie Electronic.” Clicking on the link, introduced me to a bunch of great bands, the majority of whom I had never heard of. I’m not sure how this nomenclature was arrived at but I would say it falls somewhere between Shoegaze & Alt-Country if we’re going to use MIKE ADAMS AT HIS HONEST WEIGHT as its exemplar. Elements of psychedelic pop, maybe.
I would say* that his sound falls somewhere on a continuum between Shoegaze & Alt-Country. Which is an interesting place to be, and a space that not too many musicians occupy. There are elements of psychedelic pop–the beach-ey, spacious, and occasional fuzzed or buzzing.
Here are a few ways to get a hold of this amazing music if it’s not already in the mail on it’s way to your house as part of our Flexi-Series:
