Highways & Lowways
“…It’s no surprise then, that the album recorded at The Mountain House, Adelman’s studio in Nederland, is rich, deep and polished. From the wailing guitar and country beat of the opener “Cold Mississippi Blues,” which sounds like a lost Robert Earle Keen track, to the subdued ballad of “Ghost Train” to the thick, funky, baritone saxophone on “Oh Marie,” and gorgeous story of “Wabash Avenue,” Highways and Lowways winds like a country road through fields of Americana, pastures of roots rock and hillsides of outlaw country…”
Todd Adelman & The Lovehandles
“I’ll call this one now… easily the BEST alternative country record of the year out of Colorado – and maybe the best alt- country record I’ve heard this past year, period.”
-The Colorado Sound
Todd Adelman & The Love Handles reached #4 on the National Roots Chart, #1 on the Colorado Roots Chart and has broken into the AMA top 100 as of Nov. 9, 2009.
“Henry’s Diner,” presents fifteen new songs from the Colorado recording artist. With bravely personal songwriting, an unaffected voice, and an old school-production approach, Adelman delivers a deeply riveting record stocked with gritty and dark ballads, serene and reflective soliloquies, and lilting jaunts through country life.
An introspective journey that takes the listener from the mountains to the bottom of the sea and everywhere in between. An all star cast of musicians tastefully accentuates the acoustic roots of the songs.
