Post Rock Post – Adam Young Scores

Adam Young is a name which might ring a few bells. His most prominent project, among many, many others, is Owl City, a by-now well known electronic/Americana ensemble. Thus, it should come as no surprise when I tell you that Young was extremely prolific in 2016. How prolific? One of his other projects, Adam Young Scores, released an album every month of the year. Yep. Now, it's probable that a lot of this material was stockpiled over the years and then released in one year. However, does that really matter? Not really. The quality matches the quantity as well; Adam Young Scores sees Young run the full gamut of electronic music, post rock and ambient in his search to set some of the world's most famous events/artifacts to music. Every month's release focuses on a different event/artifact and thus changes its music to try and capture some of the atmosphere and unique "flavor" of its subject.
