Editors’ Notes

Adam Arcuragi may perplex some listeners: is he alt-country? Neo-folk? "Death gospel?" (His words, not ours.) Where does he fit in, exactly? If labels are important to you, we'll leave it to you to work out that particular puzzle, while we marvel over how Arcuragi and his band (The Lupine Chorale Society) recall artists like Paul Westerberg, The Avett Brothers, and Damien Jurado yet are imbued with the bedeviled soul of Nick Cave. The opening track, "Oh I See," is a powerhouse tune, with the scruffy-throated singer leading a wave of guitar, thumping toms, and piano to a crashing end. A gruff, belching growl and banjo open the thorny, rollicking "A President's Song," and Arcuragi's poetic lyrics tell a story, albeit a hazy one, of the broken promises of the "church in our chests, the reckless and pealing bells." He wails with a moaning chorus on the goth-tinged, Cave-ish ballad "I Called," but then he strums his way to a saloon barstool on "Last Long Rain" and turns into a deeply soulful puddle on the gospel-flavored "The Well." Arcuragi gets better with each release, and this one's clearly pointing the way to even greater things.

Customer Reviews

First Great Album of 2012

Easily Adam's best effort and that's saying quite a bit. The band are at their best, delivering rousing singalongs and heart-breaking timeless odes. Can't stop listening to this.

The new music I have been looking for

I saw these guys live in Manhattan about a year ago and they were incredible. This is the best new album I have come across in a long time and I can't wait for more! I haven't seen newness this fresh in the music scene since Baby Sinclair & the Beat Doctrine.
