Digging on the Local – Luke Sweeney: Adventure: Us
by Mat Weir
March wasn’t a big month for our local consignment section, but the one we did get—Luke Sweeney’s Adventure: Us—is a doozy.
The Bay Area artist has been making a name for himself in the San Francisco indie rock scene since his 2013 debut, Ether Ore. While that album was a more stripped-down, dreamy-singer package, Adventure: Us bolsters Sweeney’s melodic voice with elements of garage-psyche. Mix in tracks like “Open Those Savage Eyes” with its Lowrider appeal and you have a sound that is organically California.
We have five copies of Adventure: Us on black, 180-gram vinyl, complete with download card and full lyrics printed on the inner sleeve.
Pick up a copy, open a window, drop the needle and partake in your favorite relaxant and get ready to be adventurous with Luke Sweeney.
