[NO, NOT THE MAYOR] It might have caused some mix-ups in recent years (City Club members showing up at night clubs, etc.), but really, local singer-songwriter Sam Adams sharing a name with Portland’s mayor can only help the musician stand out from the pack. Not that Adams needs the name to distinguish himself; his ambitious avant-rock does that perfectly well. On this summer’s Draw This Bitter Blood EP, Adams uses an expansive instrumental palette and digital textures to raise what might have been standard-issue boy-meets-guitar songs to inspired, even experimental, compositions. And if the arrangements don’t set him apart, Adams’ dynamic, haunting voice (think Radiohead’s Thom Yorke) certainly will.
