ANNUALS

Precocious Carolina wunderkind songwriter Adam Baker regularly folds into his pop an intellectually intriguing experimental edge with overstuffed electronic overdubs and multiple drummers all colliding into one another. His concurrent appeal to emotion, however, occasionally peeks out from beneath an earnest vocal delivery that almost feels like the work of someone who looks back fondly on the emo he grew up with as a teenager but now refuses to play it himself. Sounds like a perfectly sensible position to me.
