Adam Topol is a singer-songwriter based out of Los Angeles, California. Regardless of the Dark is his debut solo release after drumming for many years for artists like Ziggy Marley, Jack Johnson, Eddie Vedder, David Gilmour and Jimmy Cliff. The new record features guest collaborators such as The Pinker Tones, Dengue Fever’s David Ralicke, Ozomatli’s Raul Pacheco and Mason Jennings.

One of 2016's best releases, Regardless of the Dark is a delicately crafted, prodigious accomplishment from Topol. If you've never heard of Adam Topol then I strongly encourage you to seek out and listen to his new album. It's an undeniably likable record that's calm, cool and steady, and a significant leap forward from his previous work. Standout tracks include "Regardless of the Dark," "Hollow," "Mr. Please," and "The Captain."  The music blends elements of indie folk and indie rock and reminds me a lot of the band Yo La Tengo. Topol's strongest achievement here is his ability to write great songs with soothing, laid back melodies. It's an extremely pleasant listen that comes highly recommended.
