Adam Puddington
For the Mean Time
(Hay Sale)
On this disc, Adam Puddington proves himself to be a songwriter of uncompromising ability. His sound brings to mind an upbeat link between Gene Clark’s post-Byrds work and a more country-soul version of Jackson Browne. While Puddington’s knack for lazy hooks and well-arranged country-rock provide his initial draws, it’s his way with words that makes the album memorable. Lines like “They are clinging to our coattails/We are leading them astray/They will hang their hats on our mistakes” offer the kind of roots patois that many others in the genre have spent most of their careers trying to capture by pronouncing “your” as “yer.”
