Peter Adams-The Spiral Eyes-2004-BUTT. I play all the instruments on each song (except the drums - those are sampled) and produced them myself. Sounds like: Flying through the rain at night, sitting under a burning tree, crawling into a hole in the wall, and waking up underwater. Recommended for fans of Radiohead, Neutral Milk Hotel, Flaming Lips, and the Beatles.

There's an age-old argument (all the more relevant these days) that the most
genius musicians in the history of the world might be some guys or girls
toiling away in some dingy basement somewhere, never to be "discovered." Let's
hope that doesn't happen to Peter Adams, a stunningly good singer/songwriter
based in Cincinnati who recorded his latest, The Spiral Eyes, by his lonesome
in his bedroom-cum-studio. The album is so rich and fully evolved, it's nothing
short of shocking that it was done DIY style. Adams' songs are of the
Orchestral/Indie Pop variety, built around delicious core melodies and
augmented with a plethora of instruments and sounds (lots of string swells and
violin) that give the album a neon sparkle. Adams has a versatile vocal range,
with his tingly falsetto ranking up there with Chris Martin of Coldplay or
Matthew Caws of Nada Surf for pure thrill-factor. There's no reason songs like
"The Disappeared," "More Than You Know" and the remarkable "Shoot The Moon"
couldn't be Modern Rock radio staples. And they may soon be -- Eyes has gotten
great response from college radio in recent months. The Spiral Eyes is hyper-
catchy, but this isn't frivolous Pop-lite stuff. Adams writes with the depth of
an artist with twice his living experience, and his songs ring with a sense of
timelessness that eludes most of the Indie Pop ilk. If I owned a label, I'd
sign him immediately. Heck, someone should start a label just to sign him. Just
think of the money you could save on the recording budget! Seek this out now.
