Steve Adamyk Band

Graceland 12″ LP

Clear Vinyl | 3359588494

Blame Canada. Or for that matter, Ottawa. The Capital’s kings of punk- power-fuzz are back and better than ever. After a whack of records and worldwide touring, “Graceland” is Adamyk’s most dynamic and cohesive record to date, without breaking the mould. Colleen Green (Hardly Art) sings on it, Mike Krol (Merge) croons on it and members of Sonic Avenues are now staples in the band. This time, the band bunkered down in Montreal with engineer Adrian Popivich (Solids, The Dears) to bring Graceland to life. In the meantime, scream along to “Through My Fingers”, or get lost in the depths of “High Mile”; the choice is yours. Mr. Adamyk has been nothing but prolific since coming aboard the Dirtnap roster, this is already his fifth LP, with a sixth is in the planning stage. We here at Dirtnap find that his trademark brand of speedy, caffeinated, catchy-but-not-too-wimpy pop perfectly exemplifies that aesthetic that the label strives for. We’ll keep putting these out as long as he keeps makin’ ‘em.
