Love & Other Planets by Adem

Full of deep thoughts spliced to simple melodies, ‘Love And Other Planets’, the second solo record from Fridge man Adem, is a concept album. Scary? Not really. Here, space is analysed on micro and macro levels, what's up in the heavens and what's inside us, what we are doing to our planet and ourselves. In that respect and even musically, Adem mirrors the ambitious approach of Sufjan Stevens, which is some compliment. ‘Spirals’ just Adem and guitar, equates the mysteries and vastness of the cosmos to the size and complexity of his love for his sweetheart. That's heavy yet beautiful shit right there. Adem may not change the world, but he's denitely been thinking about it.
