"it's another concept album. it's about space. and cosmic things. and people" - adem ilhan


alright, look. i could sit and write an encyclopedia about how much i love adem, but i don't have time to do that. i'm not really even supposed to be blogging right now (for undisclosed reasons). besides, i'm in a hurry to get these songs into your hands so that you'll all rush out and buy love and other planets. the cinderella story of my 2004 record collection (read: out of nowhere, one of my very favorites), was adem's homesongs, his first outside the realm of his full-time band fridge*. and here is ilhan with a new album that's blowing me away AGAIN! it's been a mainstay in my car stereo and ipod for the past month and likely will be for a long time. much like homesongs, love and other planets is already charming to begin with, but bound to get even better with age. another highly recommended choice!

MP3: "love and other planets"
MP3: "these lights are meaningful"
from the album: love and other planets
release date: 04/24/06 (uk release only)
label: domino

*great scott, marty! adem, kieran and sam are hard at work on a new fridge album!

This is awesome - I'm seeing Adem tomorrow with Akron/Family, and hadn't heard anything before. Now I'm really excited!

I was a little dissapointed by the album. It leans towards a gentler Coldplay. The first album was more quirky.

i may be anonymous like the anonymus person at 5 26 pm, but thats all we have in common, i thought the album was every bit as good. miles away from coldplay anyway, as it has 'actual' emotion in it.

i was lucky enough to see adem live one night, and he was incredible. there was only about ten people there in the small room he was playing, and his whole band came down off the stage and played right there in front of us. i'll never forget it.

Well, I do not actually imagine it is likely to have effect.
