Adir L.C. seemingly cut his indie rock teeth in the Glen Rock< new Jersey basements that bred the likes of Titus Andronicus and Real Estate. However, in his new album Oceanside Cities, its tales from his globetrotting nature that fuels the material, as evidenced by the fact it was written in multiple cities and recorded in Tel Aviv. From the album comes New City. Winding guitars and this messy drum sound begin the record, which sounds almost claustrophobic in the way its recorded, but funnily enough not in a bad way. Adir lays down this stripped back verse of slacker rock, before the accompanying guitars bleed white noise through their instruments inbetween. There's a certain amount of angst in the music as it stutters to a halt on a couple of occasions before its noisier elements take over. Strip it all back though, and you have pop music at its most pure.

On this evidence, its a must. http://www.adirlc.com/
