CASINO DRONE out now on Joyful Noise Recordings!

"...a fervent chorus cuts through the rest of the song’s major key pleasantries; the tonal guitar runs end in dissonance; wavering strings add an equivocating air to his otherwise steady voice. The 11-song LP is rife with examples like these." - Nerdist
"Highly recommended — the work of a gently self-deprecating craftsman...his best and most touching yet" - Aquarium Drunkard
"This is certainly the band’s best album, and should be in the collection of anyone" - Razorcake
"Adams’ senses are in tune with his intentions: taste is discriminating; touch is deft; timing is calculated; and transitions are handled with the care of an expert storyteller" - Treble Zine
"Ranging from arena-sized indie rock ("Bronze Worlds") and smooth soft rock ("Keep My Heart Alive") to echoing '50s-inspired ballads ("Smart Marks") and stripped-down guitar pop ("Hobart, Chuck Manson & Jim"), the album is the work of a true craftsman with a unique style." -
"The track grinds on a chunky rhythm, with Adams’ bright melody taking on a copperish twinge as he sings the title phrase. “Out of the fog and into the sun,” he intones, the smallest hint of fatigue in his voice suggesting a victory that’s taken its toll." - FLOOD Magazine
"Mike Adams should’ve been on The Ed Sullivan Show. There’s something delightfully vintage about the Midwestern songwriter’s signature style of power pop, which he sings with swaying hips and a twinkle in his eye. If this were 1964, teen girls would be screaming for it." - AV Club
"It’s a bold pop song, with vocals pushed to the forefront and a backbone that’s closer to The Cars than to My Bloody Valentine" - Brooklyn Vegan
"The swirling, dreamy atmospherics and subdued melodies hint at his love of the obscure (Starflyer 59) and the renowned (The Beach Boys), creating something unique in the process" - NPR Music
"sounds as if it could have been written at any point in the past 30 or so years, which is to say that it’s catchy enough to feel timeless" - Consequence of Sound
