about

I Came To Sing The Song follows Adam’s acclaimed sophomore album Pearls To Swine, released on September 9, 2016 and which caught the attention of NPR Music, Pitchfork, The AV Club, Stereogum, Paste, Texas Monthly, and many more. Written and recorded at Cacophony Recorders in Austin throughout January/February 2016 during the same sessions as Pearls To Swine, the EP has a focus on songs about songwriting, and is a small testament to dedicating one’s life to song. It’s a personal, inward-looking short collection, marked by a deliberate, languid tempo and spacey atmosphere, as well as Adam’s unmistakable falsetto. The songs on I Came To Sing The Song were recorded live and to tape with minimal overdubs, and feature the players in Adam’s band: Swans’ Thor Harris (on conga drums, vibraphone, and percussion), Aisha Burns (violin), and Dailey Toliver (bass/piano), with drum kit performances by Matthew Shepherd and Rodolfo Villareal III. Two songs on the EP, the title track and “Green Mountain Road,” both include performances by Lauryn Gould on flute.
