This week, Adam Garbinski e-mailed me demo tracks from the new record he’s working on with longtime songwriting partner Dave Petersen, and an interesting comparison came up. “When a friend heard the new jams,” Garbinski wrote, “He was like ‘It’s like Laurel Canyon meets The Replacements!’” In today’s Philly Local Phile, we examine that unlikely fusion forged by Adam And Dave’s Bloodline: “Misunderstood” drifts in wavy tones and ethereal tape hiss (which might be attributed to the demo-ness of the recording), but it also has a concrete grit, a rough delivery, a toughness to it. It definitely makes me pumped to hear more, once the record is fleshed out and polished. In the short term, it’s a good incentive to get out to The M Room tonight for local scenester Jesse Chadderdon’s birthday bash; Bloodline is on the bill, as are Drew Mills and Ben Dickey of Blood Feathers and Steph Hayes of The Good Problems. Adam And Dave’s Bloodline performs with Drew Mills And Ben Dickey, Willie Breeding, and Steph Hayes at 8 p.m. at The M Room; tickets to the 21+ show are $8.
