w/ The Weeks, and Slumlord Radio
Saturday, December 3rd, at PJ's Lager House
Drawing comparisons from Townes Van Zandt to Tim Buckley to Otis Redding, Arkansas born and bred Adam Faucett is most known for his powerful, almost operatic voice and intricate finger-picking. The Arkansas native's sound has been described by The Arkansas Times as "somewhere between Otis Redding's soul shout and Cat Power's swampy poeticism".
Faucett's newest release "More Like A Temple" marks a further evolution of Adam's "southern soul swamp opera" sound. Love and Sweet Maureen come on like Otis Redding sitting in on a Pavement single. Morphine is a haunted morning-after reflection with a guitar hook that stays with you until the next morning. The swamp rock foreshadowing of Gator, the space folk of Saturday, and the Zeppelin vs. White Stripes riffs of Do What I Say present Faucett as part folk crooner, part celestial traveler, part Arkie rock hero - all parts in sharp control of their faculties as writer, storyteller, singer, composer, and guitarist.
