FAT POSSUM RECORDS SIGNS ADAM TORRES
NEW ALBUM OUT THIS AUTUMN
Fat Possum Records are proud to announce the signing of Austin, Texas-based singer-songwriterAdam Torres, whose new album, due in the autumn, will be his debut worldwide release.
Torres’ first album Nostra Nova was initially self-released in 2006. Over the years it grew from being a closely-held, sleeper favourite in the close-knit music scene of Athens, Ohio (a small college town where he lived at the time), to earning “cult classic” status following its 2015 US re-release. The album received praise from outlets including The A.V. Club, Stereogum (“a stunner”), VICE(“beautiful, melancholy tunes”), Popmatters, All Music Guide and Flavorwire, among others.
The track “Alone Together” from Nostra Nova can be streamed here:
Torres and his band – comprised of Thor Harris (of Swans), Aisha Burns and Dailey Toliver – will head out on a run of U.S. dates in June, full dates here.
More information on Adam Torres’ new album will be announced soon.
