Limited vinyl LP pressing including vinyl etching on side two plus digital download. Mike Adams At His Honest Weight rounds out 2015 with Preparation Age, a new 5-song one-sided LP. It was recorded during the same sessions as a forthcoming 2016 full-length and serve as companion songs and a taste of what is to come. They build on the solidly crafted pop songs of 2014's The Best of Boiler Room Classics through sonic experimentation and take the band's sound into a hazier new territory combining influences from the synth-based rock of Wheat, Grandaddy, and Flaming Lips with Beach Boys inspired vocal harmonies. Throughout Preparation Age, Mike Adams manages to tell stories of forgotten friends and everyday people, turning fear and anxiety from the departed past into something pleasing and beautiful. In the more perfect universe next door, 2016 is the year for Mike and the boys' magnum opus crowning achievement that will earn them a well-deserved gold record. For 2015, in the here and now, it's Mike Adams At His Honest Weight's Preparation Age.
