Mike Adams at His Honest Weight
Mike Adams at His Honest Weight
Mike Adams At His Honest Weight is the flagship recording project of Mike Adams (duh). Musician, writer, TV host, parent, humorist, friend, nimble agitator, these are all adjectives that describe Mike Adams, the man. But, in another realm, he's a complex mixture of Star-stuff, somehow equally at home whether he's at home, or performing for a captivated drooling audience.

For the most part, these songs are written and recorded by Mike, alone, in his room before they're handed off to friend and trusted confidant, Adam Jessup, for further production and polishing-off. I suppose Mike sees the arranging and writing process as an escape fantasy into his own mind where he's safe and in control. Of course, he's wrong about that. What he's really doing is flipping himself inside out; internalizing his experience and exposing his veiled vulnerability in a grotesque public evolutionary process for the whole world to see. Obviously. But, he's a sensitive guy, so if you don't tell him, neither will we.
Fatal Film
Fatal Film is one of New London, CT's great rock and roll acts. They've been playing some of the best shows of their storied run over the last year or so churning out sonic and mischief and wowing audiences with the results. During that time, they've toiled in the studio with local producer Jason Banta to build the definitive statement of the Fatal Film sound with their brand new 12 track eponymous CD.
Farmertan is four piece indie band with an almost 20+ year history- an enviable resume, performing with bands such as Luna, Mike Watt, Archers of Loaf, Velocity Girl, Apples in Stereo, and Velvet Crush, among others. They have championed a DIY ethic allowing them to write, record and self-release their music. Their online presence has garnered impressive exposure at home and even more notably overseas. They've been involved with websitewww.jamendo.com, which has licensed their music in independent films, most notably Serbian film Tilva Ros (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1516593/) , an award winning Australian short film named Parrot (http://parrotshortfilm.com/) and pro wrestler Nigel McGuiness’s documentary The Last of McGuinness (http://www.nigelwrestling.com/). They've also had their songs and albums played over half a million times as staples on Jamendo’s commercial services program, with tens of thousands of downloads. Eschewing genre based descriptions, Farmertan wears its varied musical influences on its sleeve at times, culminating into a very indie rock centric take on the rock and roll genre. It has been said that Farmertan does not sound like other bands, other bands sound like Farmertan.
