From Pitchfork:


Stream Eight New Goddamn Ryan Adams Albums

Looks like the witches are at it again. As anyone who cruises by Ryan-Adams.com today will find, the website has been updated with a veritable ass-load of new streaming songs. Last time we got 36 title-less tracks; this time, good God, the witches have summoned up eight whole albums.

Really though, we hesitate to call these "albums" or the things on them "songs", because let's face it, they're pretty much tossed-off Garage Band demos. Luckily Adams has a knack for song-writing, however, and most of these off the cuff sketches are already more melodically interesting than much of what indie-land has churned out this year. Plus they're hilarious, and have titles like "Get Scared, Throw Up, Die", "Oops, Youre Dead", and of course, "Drunk as a Pile of Fuck".

Many of your favorites from the original batch of 36 crop up here-- now with titles-- under one of three apparent Adams aliases: The Shit, who deal in punk rock and hillbilly fuckery, DJ Reggie, who sounds an awful lot like Bran Van 3000, and WereWolph, who cover Creed and Shania Twain and sound positively deranged.

Welcome to the future of the internet, kids.

It's amazing how people continue to think this joke is funny...

Adams has been watering down his career with these constant releases. Like Robert Pollard of Guided by Voices, if he was more selective and released less, he'd have a lot better legacy.

Well, it's the most interesting thing about this person, which in itself is funny.

The most interesting thing about Ryan Adams is that his name is similar to Bryan Adams'??? Dude, that's fuckin' nuts.

Crazy ain't it? How do we even know who he is?

Just because you live under a rock doesn't mean the rest of us do.

Ryan Adams is trying too hard to be relevant.

:lol:

That never gets old....and it's the first thing I think of when he's mentioned.

I've heard him covering Wonderwall on XM from time to time, anyone know if it's available?

GuruTwo 11-16-06 01:17 PM

Yeah it's on "Love Is Hell".

You clearly didn't get my point. Oh well.

Alright, folks, we're up to 11 Internet only albums now. From Pitchfork:


Ryan Adams Delivers More Internet Inanity

Breaking news: Ryan Adams loves him some Internet. We're talking codependent levels of love here, people. How else can you explain why the genre-hopscotching rocker can't stop posting every random thing he lays to computer-tape these days? Dude's fast becoming the Jackson Pollock of rock in the cyber age, just splattering it all out there in an endless monsoon of unchecked creativity.

Which is, simultaneously, about as amazing and as awful as it sounds. This time, along with updating his splash page with a new background ditty (a freeform jam that sees him ranting about witches again), Adams has uploaded even more new aural experiments to his Cardinal Radio-- and added wacky cover art. Including the previously reported eight, he's up to 11 new albums.

Alter egos DJ Reggie (fond of schizophrenic, lo-fi hip hop) and The Shit (fond of the rock) each contribute a host of new "tracks", collected on "albums" like Holla Dayz Inn and Christmas Apocalypse. Adams is still absolutely out of his mind, this time going on about Armageddon (the movie), Keira Knightley (if you're reading this, Keira, call Ryan!), and why unicorns aren't real ("nobody ever took a picture of them," see).

So what the hell's gotten into Adams lately? Well here's a clue: as "DJ Reggie" wrote in a recent website posting, "I have learned how to use a cool thing on my computer which basically allows me now to never ever stop recording music ever, which is going to be great news for all my adoring fans..."

Those adoring fans will likely fill New York City's Town Hall to the brim next week as Adams plays three consecutive shows at the venue.

Live Adams:

12-04 New York, NY - Town Hall
12-05 New York, NY - Town Hall
12-06 New York, NY - Town Hall
