REVIEW: Brandon Adamson- Popsicle Stand

Today we look at something old, but new. Simple, yet complex. Fun, yet dark. Let's dive into the world of Brandon Adamson, and his latest track, 'Popsicle Stand'...

With the old-time charm of Beach Boys, funnelled through a Moldy Peaches-like frailty, the charm and simplicity of this track sneaks it's way into your consciousness. It almost feels at times like the track may just fall apart, like it's going to come unstuck. And it makes it so exciting. Adamson's haunting, melodic vocals seem almost cheerful from the outset, but once you delve deeper, you realise there's a fantastic malevolence at work. This is clever stuff, from an exciting, forward-thinking artist.

Throughout his music, Brandon Adamson takes chances. With Genre. With Instruments. With layouts. Nothing is sacred, and nothing is beyond his grasp. He seems to go by the motto of 'if it feels good, do it'. And it pays off. Sounding like an evolution of the Post-Folk genre, he makes delicate, exciting music that sounds honest and real. He's been doing his own brand of experimental, lo-fi pop for the past 9 years, and we can't wait to hear what he comes out with next.
