Adam Torres Nostra Nova Reissue!  

Posted at 10:38 pm

Adam Torres‘s breathtakingly beautiful Nostra Nova will be reissued April 7, 2015. Originally released in very DIY fashion in 2006, the album gained a cult following around Ohio. The LP arrives on clear vinyl and will be limited to 500 foil-numbered copies.

  • Jillian Mapes of Flavorwire, Pitchfork, Billboard, etc. wrote a very moving Wondering Sound piece on what Adam Torres’s music meant to her as she was coming of age in Ohio.
  • Daytrotter recently did a fantastic session

Adam and his band will head out on a late Spring tour. Dates TBA very soon.

Please do pre-order the album here. Adam is a lovely person. Thank you.

mojo beds

MOJO — the magazine we’ve all been reading since children here at Camp Misra — gave the sweet boys of Motel Beds 4/5 stars! We couldn’t be happier. The review comes from MOJO’s wonderful editor Jenny Bulley, nonetheless.

Please forgive the fuzzy scan, but we wanted to post it now. We’ll get a better scan soon. MOJO 250, September 2014. Yes!
