Album Notes
“Under the Mountain”, the latest LP from South Jersey's Adams Wilson, is at its heart a road trip album that covers a lot of ground, veering from Alt-Country and Americana to Indie, Rock, and Singer-Songwriter.

This time around, the band consists of longtime Adams Wilson conspirators Dan Illi (guitars/vox/music), Ryan Buzby (drums), and Katie Skwirut (vox), stepping out of the wings and onto the main stage alongside frontman Adams Eberwein (guitars/bass/vox/music/lyrics).

“Under the Mountain” pulls onto the open road with “No More Feelings,” a Tom Petty-style Rocker with torque, and soon enough you’re tapping the steering wheel to “Need a Reason.” You'll take a brief but beautiful detour on "Hawk Falls" as Eberwein and Skwirut trade verses and memories about a scenic getaway gone south. Mandolins and Martins push the upbeat shuffle and stomp of “Broken Billboards,” an ode to the road that caffeinates the second leg of the trip. Dan Illi, who helped out with 2015's "Prairie Fires" and 2017's "Hard Summer" returns to the Adams Wilson songwriting team and takes lead vocals on the side-A closer, “The Best Day,” a Muse-inspired rant on maker culture.

The B-side opener comes on strong with a Bluesy, chaotic bar romp ("When You Hit, Hit Hard") before careening into a proper Stones homage in “Heart Attack.” The guitars drive and squeal (and the piano has definitely been drinking) before the band downshifts to acoustic guitars and vocal harmonies in the David Rawlings & Gillian Welch-inspired “I Don’t Wanna Waste Your Time.” The reflective title track is a parable of inherited sins awash in reverb and synths -- an unexpected yet welcome departure for the band. The album closes out with “Explorers at the End of the World” which still feels like uncharted territory, but capitalizes on the band members’ strengths and influences (the percussive guitars of Ani DiFranco, the whispering, biting vocals of Thom Yorke, and the tight-knit harmonies of Simon and Garfunkel).

Like any unforgettable road trip, “Under the Mountain” is an introspective one -- a soundtrack to getting away from it all that just might land you squarely in the middle of everything.
