Adam WarRock has come back to his hometown of Memphis and to computerate the new chapter, he’s released an EP called City Beautiful. The title track was given a music video, and was heavily inspired by one of my favorite joints by Atmosphere – “Always Coming Back Home to You”. It’s a little bit more soulful than his usual work, but I can appreciate the change of pace. You can read more about the album, here. Purchase the album from Bandcamp.
I came back from almost two years of touring and fell back in love with my hometown of Memphis, TN. With the warm, soulful backdrop of Rob Viktum’s amazing beats, I started making an EP for the winter of 2012, knowing that I wanted to maybe be a bit more personal, a bit more introspective. I mostly just felt my way through these beats and out came City Beautiful, what I view to be an album of me talking about the past, talking about the future, and talking about why home is, for maybe the first time in a long time for a ton of reasons, an almost wholly good thing. I invited some of my best friends in the nerdcore scene, and asked them to be on my “least nerdy” album, and if you ask me, I think they all destroyed it. So here’s City Beautiful, an album about coming home, again, for the first time in a lot of ways.
