"Adult Books - Adult Books EP"

And here's another awesome debut but this time it comes from the United States. Crazy cool and upbeat surf pop with a modern twist. Released last month on cassettes via Lolipop Records. - Against the Odds

"Adult Books on"

"In Love Again" by Adult Books used in the video "Woodward Tahoe at Superpark 16" - Snowboarder Magazine

"Adult Books - Staring at the Sea (Marie)"

Oscillating guitars open the track and are blended with surf undertones, creating visions of kicking your feet in the shimmering ocean, or running freely through rock pools. The lo-fi atmosphere of the track is balanced well against the prominent drums that slowly hypnotise you into a spell of relaxed compliance. As if there was really ever any other end result.

You can download the new EP via the bandcamp page. - Centuries

"Introducing: Adult Books"

Los Angeles’ Adult Books rule. Having fallen in love with them from the moment I listened to the tunes sent to me for our “Summer Fling” comp, I can no longer resist posting about these newly found favorites. Listening to Adult Books is like opening up a party straight from the 90s, with every bit of garage fun spilling into the room you’re seated in. Posted on their bandcamp is older demos from 2011, however you should definitely check out their soundcloud page for a sneak peek of a couple songs (posted above) off their upcoming cassette via lolipop records!

Relationships, the people in and out of your life. Wild nights, complicated days. Running away, making mistakes. The little things in life that turn into what you remember. Confusion. Letting go, choosing happiness. Doubt. Deeper meanings, recognizing needs. Adult Books creates thrashy love stories worth watching the sun set to, hand in hand with the ones making each feeling worth it.

"Adult Books - Bedsit Infamies"

A warm glow shines from the depths of Los Angeles; rich layers of colour and texture rush over like an approaching storm, or the inner joy one feels when happy visions flood the memory.

Following their EP from early this year Adult Books have honed their sound, resulting in this mature, confident presentation that wonderfully blends elements from the likes of The Byrds with more contemporary bands such as Surfer Blood. Addictive and wonderfully structured, this b-side to “In Love Again” is as immediately moreish a track as you’re likely to hear this year. The strong vocals oscillate with the guitar hook that rises and falls in waves of hypnotising melody that it’s impossible to escape from, something you’d be, quite frankly, daft to even attempt.

Check out this track and the a-side, “In Love Again” at the bands’ Soundcloud page ahead of their release on cassette via Lolipop Records soon. - Centuries


Self-Titled EP (Lolipop Records, October 2012)



Adult Books likes late 70s post-punk, early 80s hardcore and all 60s soul and R&B. We also like surfing, poodles and not eating meat. We like Orange County because punk shit happens when you party in the 'burbs.
