American Culture, April 28, The Crux

Get some culture

by

Last November, the Denver power-pop band American Culture released the single "I Like American Culture." The song's lyrics name-check Coca-Cola, The Pixies, Sonic Youth, The Flaming Lips and The Rolling Stones.The Stones aren't American, of course. That's a little wink from leader Chris Adolf, who brought a similarly sly touch to the songs of his earlier project, Bad Weather California, which some may remember from Treefort 2013. But Adolf means it when he declares on the song "Fictional Life" that "falling in love is cool." And when you hear those words combined with the band's surging drums and fiery guitars, you'll definitely like American Culture.
