DG Adams “Nest of Vipers” Album Release

There’s something very ‘punk’ these days about music that sounds like the musicians are actually playing the instruments and the singers are inhaling before they exhale…if you know what I mean.  I happen to prefer my music more human than automated. DG Adams’ album “Nest of Vipers” is thankfully free from the confines of electronica and autotune.  It is full of the divine flaws of live recordings, the sentimental passions of a love for jamming, and the turn of a thoughtful phrase.

It’s no surprise to me that Adams is an actor and a Shakespearean one at that.  The themes are dramatic; death, love, war, despair.  The vocals are layered and harmonized, poignant and cinematic.  The whole album feels like a performance piece in fact.  More rock musical than rock concert.  It even has a little comic relief with the track “Platonic Lovers,” neatly placed at the end of the second act.

The production is warm and welcoming, the musicians excellent and the songs playfully diverse, folky, Spanish, rock, soul and even a little Elizabethan.  Its honesty reminds me a little of Pink Floyd or David Bowie or Joni Mitchell…that same kind of wistful mournfulness.  These songs are straight from the heart, really compelling and gorgeously theatrical….loved it!!!
