Album Review

adem – launch yourself (Domino)

outlier   10/25/2007   7-inch, A Library

Are you ready for folktronica ????? I didn’t think so and that’s just how this UK nu-folk hero likes it.?? Adem Ilhem is in on the Fridge project (with Kieran Hebden and Sam Jeffers).?? Ilhem and Hebden have been?? friends since age eleven.?? The vocals undoubtedly carry the folk gene?? but?? the?? drift, gamelan and tronics treatment provided by Four Tet (Hebden’s solo project) and Oslo experimentalist Thomas Eriksen disguise it so that you really don’t know WTF you’re listening to with this single from Adem’s 2nd release.
