Gomez Addams 

Summer Viking

(gomezaddams.bandcamp.com)

Teacher by day, rocker by night, Gomez Addams is a one-man band full of reverb-drenched pop jams. Though he keeps his identity a secret, the Clevelander isn't afraid to share an honest glimpse into his daily routine — or even into his daydreams — in songs like "Teacher." The psych-rock is pure fun in its frankness: "I want to go to Europe, drink lots of coffee, and eat ice cream," he sings in one song. "I put a lot of reverb on my vocals so nobody can hear me." Summer Viking is dreamy throughout, and especially on "Memorial," a giddy affair that skids between slow, settled riffs and peppy toe-tapping with lots of "oohs" and "ahhs" to sing along with. Best of all, the album is available as a free download — a fine lesson for all students of music. — Danielle Sills
