In 2006, the then 20-year-old Adam Torres released his idiosyncratic, varied, and beautiful debut album, Nostra Nova. A DIY self-release, the album became a closely-held, sleeper favorite in the close-knit music scene of Athens, OH and over the years grew to a ‘cult classic’-like status. The album has a song on it called Breakneck Jane’s Fifteen Minute Escape, which is one of our favourite ever tracks, and also a massive favourite of Chris T Popper and The Italian Job’s.
So ten years on from his debut, it is a cause of much excitement to learn that Adam Torres will release his second album Pearls To Swine on September 9th, 2016 via Fat Possum (pre-order here).
The first track from it is High Lonesome, a gorgeously vulnerable and fragile slice of folkish Americana that does more than a good job of whetting the appetite for the full album.
