Like a rejection of destruction; like an answer to anxiety; like a reversal of death – I Am Become Joy is a prescient cut across the grain  of this new depression. Adam Arcuragi’s new 11-song album confirms his  importance as one of the most gifted songwriters today. In some ways  harkening back to the origins of recorded American folk music and in other  ways continuing lineage of American independent rock, Arcuragi has  positioned himself as a unique and visionary voice.

On his second full-length album, Arcuragi expands on the dark, sparse style of his preceding 2006 self-titled album and 2008 EP, Soldiers for  Feet. Backed with layers of backing vocals and a rotating cast of  instrumentation, I Am Become Joy shows the full width of Arcuragi’s brilliant songwriting style. Layered with harmony vocals and embellished with pedal steel, dulcimer, accordion, trumpet, and even a singing saw,  each song has a unique arrangement to compliment Arcuragi on vocals and  guitar.

I Am Become Joy features guest appearances by Dawn Landes and members of  like-minded artists B.C. Camplight, These United States, Fan of Friends,  and The War on Drugs.
