American Culture at Durango Herald

“Pure American Gum,” American Culture. American Culture is the new band led by Colorado’s Chris Adolph, rising out of the ashes of the now-defunct Bad Weather California.

This is a successful quest for power pop. Reverb and fuzz give way to the best of simple songwriting. It’s a breezy record for summer, the name and title track paying homage to classic American Culture and its music. Reminiscent of Cheap Trick songs that lyrically tap on nothing more than a good time, it reminds us of the importance of a mixed tape and slowing down enough to enjoy a simple record.
