The Yellow Cab Tavern is excited to host Austin by way of Ohio artist, Adam Torres on his national tour with New York’s Wild Pink on Friday, February 23 with local support from Speaking Suns. Be sure to get your tickets early for this exciting double-bill!
Torres’ debut album Nostra Nova was initially self-released in 2006, and over the years grew from being a closely-held, sleeper favorite in the close-knit music scene of Athens, OH (where he lived at the time), to earning “cult classic” status. Upon its 2015 re-release, the album received praise from outlets including The A.V. Club, Stereogum (“a stunner”), VICE (“beautiful, melancholy tunes”), Popmatters, All Music Guide, and Flavorwire, among others.

“After two EPs that found the Brooklyn trio exploring an array of mid-fi ’90s influences, they’ve honed a sound that suits Ross’ perspective—maybe not so much comfortably numb as “manageably anxious,” reminiscent of early Death Cab for Cutie or American Analog Set, bands who took on characteristics of slowcore without being stylistically bound to it.” Pitchfork

Speaking Suns bare their teeth with a sophisticated approach to pop music, digging from a wide range of music that has come before them with disparate hints of Nilsson, Lambchop and most especially the Chicago sounds of Sea and Cake and the Denver based Elephant Six Collective.
