ADAM ARCURAGI & SPURS

ADAM ARCURAGI & SPURS

Like a fire that consumes all before it was recorded mostly live with producer Duane Lundy (Jim James, Daniel Martin Moore, Ben Sollee) over a 12 day period at his Lexington, Kentucky studio. The recording process was inspired by Phil Spector era recordings and early twentieth century folk songs and hymns, such as on the compilation Goodbye Babylon; to capture the sound of the space with all of the voices and instruments mixing together. The album's title is not only a line from The Illiad but also the name of Arcuragi's favorite Cy Twombly painting.

The album was tracked with the rotating cast of musicians that make up The Lupine Chorale Society, with the current installment consisting of Jack Carter, Harrison Barrow, Matt Luyk and Andrew Gerhan. Previous incantations of The Society have included members of the bands War on Drugs, These United States and Rogue Wave.

Born in Georgia, Arcuragi (pronounced ärk; er; ā; jēe) grew up listening to his grandparent's collection of old country records and Southern hymns, while wearing out cassette tapes of Bob Dylan and The Beatles. Arcuragi's self titled debut was released in 2006 and was followed up by I am become joy in 2009. All Music Guide states, "There is unbridled joy inherent in even the saddest of these songs, and unforgettable images in almost every verse" while The Washington Post said of the bands live dates "If you want to see Troubadouring done right, its your duty to catch Arcuragi."
