The Skinny: Wave Sleep Wave might be a name new to you, but if you’re at all a fan of NY indie rock or even folk, then you just may have already heard of Jerry Adler. Adler not only fronted The Blam, but also a solo folk project dubbed Flugente. Taking various elements from his career to date, Adler recently finished a new, self-titled debut and is set to release it via his own label Curb Cut Records on March 27th.
The new effort is not only unique in sound and composition, but also in that over it’s 9 songs it tells a story (sort of like an electronic album the songs work on their own or seamlessly tie together forming one long track). Regardless of how you consume the music though, Wave Sleep Wave is fresh and fun and yet another bold new direction for Adler. Fans of Wire and The Fall, or just those who can’t get enough free, new music should download the song now.
