Adam Bugaj - Wave of Tears

Adam Bugaj sometimes plays lysergic barn rock with the Clear Spots, other times vaporizes neurons with Peacefeather (please check out their excellent CD on Honeymoon Music), but more than either he’s a bedroom-studio Dr. Moreau, toiling away in his attic laboratory to bring us fragmentary new sonic life forms. If the medium is the message, this is definitely speaking in tongues: flashes of recognizable elements float by -- ghosts of Wilson/Parks sketches, malfunctioning electronica, lo-fi psychedelia, tape hiss and machine hum and the click of the edit button -- then fly off in mid-sentence just as their import begins to clarify. This is what it would feel like if Daylight Savings Time happened every day.

Wave of Tears reviewed on Womblife

. . . I was talking a bit about psych pop up top there, and how nothing had really been grabbing me along those lines lately, but then came Adam Bugaj's "Wave of Tears" to fully reinvigorate the genre and my faith in it simultaneously. Adam (also of The Clear Spots) seems to be workin at home here with piano, guitar, vibes, effects and other percussion as well as tape manipulation and primitive electronics to conjure dreamy meditive sound mobiles. . . .

Wave of Tears reviewed on Broken Face

Adam Bugaj is a member of rustic noise rockers the Clear Spots, an ensemble we’ve praised on repeated occasions here at the BF headquarters. Given that it shouldn’t even be a question whether we enjoy Bugaj’s solo music or not, but this is such a different cup of tea that it unquestionably has to live on its own merits. Luckily Wave of Tears is shock full with the kind of sonic wisdom, intricate collage-like pop structures and sparkling electronica that is all too rare these days. . . .
