Illicit file-sharing music blog Dayvan Zombear label DZ TAPES has been building a loyal following for the past year with a steady stream of releases that straddle pop and psychedelic strains of experimental music. For the 5th installment of their tape series, they released Athens native ADAM TORRES self-titled record. This singer songwriter crafts soft and soulful folk blues that resound in the soul with their piercing emotional honesty. The strum of a guitar strolls gently along mystic rolling hills, at times amplified by a tempteous sea of reverb and echo that washes over you like a cool midnight mist, at other times light as a feather, gently buoyed by a heart-breaklingly sweet voice, floating alone in the wind. Torres’ seraphinic falsetto plays sweet and enthralling over his minimal plucked melodies. Incisive lyrics flow downhill, reflecting moments of profound melancholy and solitude that evolve into humble communion with those mellow pastoral vibes. We’ll be paying close attention this promising Austin-based troubadour.
