1, 2, 11, 16 from the unfinished album Pop Songs for Funerals
4, 10, 11, 13, 16 from the Pal-O-Mine cassette

Most of these songs were recorded before 2008; all were recorded before An Instructive Amusement (2013). The audio quality is mixed, but the recordings aren't as lo-fi as, say, early Daniel Johnston and Mountain Goats tapes.

What people are saying:

"My personal favorite is from the sweet little pop outfit of Greg Adams' Cozy Catastrophes. Adams usually opts for a more lush sound, but 'Dying Breath' comes from a compilation of his early 4-track work, and, to my ears, the simplicity suits him." – A Short Walk/Musical Family Tree


released October 8, 2016

Greg sang and played electric guitar, acoustic guitar, electric bass, Casio keyboards, Moog synthesizer, mandolin, harmonica, and percussion.
