A covers album of a particularly personal stripe, Adem Ilhan' s third solo record has all the intimacy and hand-crafted charm of a beloved mixtape, bringing the warmth of spirit and imaginative acoustic palette of his earlier works to bear on a handful of his favorite songs from the formative period for Adem himself and for indie music in general between and Despite a fair breadth of source material given the constraints of time and milieuTakes functions quite cohesively on its own terms, and there's plenty to enjoy here whether or not listeners are familiar with the original versions.
Many of the picks play to Adem 's strengths in obvious and thoroughly effective ways -- the fluid, melodic guitar lines of Pinback "Loro" and Bedhead "Bedside Table" translate naturally to his layered acoustic picking style, while the spare, serenely transcendent emotionalism of Low' s "Laser Beam" and Yo La Tengo' s "Tears Tears Are In Your Eyes - Adem - Takes in Your Eyes" make a fine fit for his achingly rich, just-slightly-gritty voice which, if anything, is perhaps a tad forceful for these utterly delicate songs.
Most intriguing, and perhaps the album's standout moment, is his Aphex Twin homage, which combines two tracks Sing Mit Mir Ein Hallelujah - Wolfgang* - Sing Mit Mir Ein Hallelujah The Richard D.
Elsewhere, dEUS "Hotellounge" and the Breeders "Invisible Man" get stripped of their rougher, grungier elements in favor of lusciously thick arrangements replete with glockenspiel, harmonium, piano, and an array of plucked string instruments -- all of which, along with dulcimer, Autoharp, violin, and assorted found percussion, make up the bountiful sonic trick bag from which Adem draws intuitively and judiciously throughout the album.
Not an especially consequential offering, but a tremendously lovable one, Takes may be aptly and cleverly titled punning on at least three senses of the wordbut it's Najpiękniejsza Jest Hellada - Eleni - Ty - Jak Niebo, Ja - Jak Obłok an act of giving on multiple levels as well: a showcase for the considerable musical gifts of its creator, a sincere token of tribute to his inspirations, and a generous treat for his listeners.
