Adem – Homesongs [2004]

For your delight, we have compiled a list of popular sound bites to do with Adem’s 2004 release, Homesongs. If you think they are all nonsense, then feel free to submit your own or vote against them.

“[Adem] has that rare ability to simply sing a song, with the unadorned directness of someone who is unbothered by any sense of performing his creations.”

-PopMatters

“Beautifully conceived and executed variations of folkish principles shape this excellent debut, steering clear of the more complex folktronic conceits employed so famously by his curly-haired, gifted compadre.”

-Boomkat

“Abandoning the instrumentals and concepts, stripping away his surname and his bass lines, Ilhan has found his voice and exposed his soul for this debut.”

-The Guardian

“[Homesongs is] an album of husky voices and delicately played instruments that, at its best, is as warm and comforting as a sun-drenched blanket after a cold swim.”

-Stylus

Submit your own Arcade Fire Funeral sound bites

“Enchanting, ghostly and at some points, downright depressing. Arcade Fire do what they do best in Funeral, their best record to date.”

“While falling for the hype back in ’06, after re-evaluation Funeral sounds more lethargic than cathartic.”

“Even in its darkest moments, Funeral exudes an empowering positivity.”

Pitchfork

Funeral captures the agony and even ecstasy of surviving death all around you.

Rolling Stone

Funeral, the band’s follow-up to their revelatory DIY debut, documents a passionate and thoughtful indie-rock band whose perspectives and convictions are bolstered by their everyday lives.”
