Adam Elk: Labello
Adam Elk's solo debut (Labello) in 1999 is an album that you should have, but probably don't. Adam spent most of the 1990's fronting The Mommyheads and playing a minor role in the 90's indie/alternative movement headed by the likes of Pavement. It seems that his solo album sank through the cracks, much as his work with The Mommyheads did.
Labello is a beautiful pop album. This isn't modern day pop - this is your grandad's pop. Well crafted hooks, excellent production and enough funk and soul to satisfy any child of the 70's. It's really too bad that this album didn't come out about 2 years later when Maroon 5 cashed in on the same formula.
Anyways, if you like 70's funk or if you like Maroon 5 but you're too cool to admit it, check out Adam Elk. Nobody knows him, so it's cool...
