ADULT. "Detroit House Guests"
The new album from Detroit electronic duo ADULT. is more than just a mere album. Think of it more as an art project. Utilizing an “artist in residency” model for their guest musician’s turns, the pair applied, and received, a grant to bring their vision to fruition. They would invite musicians to their studio to “live, work, and collaborate together” for three week stretches. With Nicola Kuperus and Adam Lee Miller helming the whole thing, what could have been a disjointed mess is a chillingly new sound, with elements of all the guests making their way into the artful electronic music. There are passages of drone, dance, experimental (ok, more than a passage of experimental). Check out the jittery bounce of “They’re Just Words.”
