Adam Torres – Pearls to Swine

[Year: 2016 / Country: USA / Label: Fat Possum]

A divine tearjerker

There are a handful of voices that could be regarded as proof that angels do exist. Adam Torres possesses one such voice. On Pearls to Swine, Torres glistens over a perfect mix of finger-picked acoustic guitar, soft percussion and aching strings. It’s an instantly timeless record. There are echoes of Tim Buckley and naturally Pearls Before Swing, but Adam Torres separates himself from his forebears by pouring out his soul in his own magnificent style. It’s an album likely to bring you to tears.

Favorite tracks: Juniper Arms, Where I’m Calling From, Mountain River
