While the prospect of being on the road all the time had Joey Ramone begging for sedatives, for Brooklyn songwriter Adir L.C., the journey really is the reward. The jangle indie folk jet setter got his start in New Jersey before college in New York and a subsequent two-year relocation to Tel Aviv, and in the process has become a sort of twenty-first century traveling bard.
That sense of kinetic creativity lent itself to Basket Star, Adir L.C.’s latest album and one that weaves together gentle horn arrangements, impressionistic lyrics and dreamy guitar across a dozen originals. Basket Star is available today so make the first move with the record’s inaugural track, “Best Version (of my short life)”!
