Ryan Adams is Sad Dracula

For those of you that haven't been keeping up, Ryan Adams appears to have a lot of free time. Over the past few weeks he has been uploading tracks on his official website under various psuedonyms including: The Shit, DJ Reggie, Werewolph, Warren Peace, and Sad Dracula. Sadly, some of the so-called "albums" have since been removed, but a handful of them still remain. On these "albums" Ryan and friends cover an array of genres from hip hop to thrash punk, and metal to really twangy country music and anything in between. It's hard to tell really how serious most of this stuff is, and most all of it is sure to make you laugh, but you can stream it, along with his entire catlogue from Heartbreaker to 29 here.

A couple of days ago, the most serious of these "albums," two to be exact, under the name "Sad Dracula" were up on his site. Serious in the sense that they seem to consist of actual songs, rather than some guy who's really trying to fight boredom so he starts mashing buttons on a casio or throwing things at an electric guitar to see what kind of noises he can make. There is speculation that these could be sessions for an album that Adams alluded to earlier this year as "Rock n' Roll 2," and one listen to them would tell you why. Adams reportedly had enough material to release upwards of three more albums this year, but it was said that his label saw things differently. So here are Sad Dracula's "Fasterpiece" and "Let it B-Minus," Rock n' Roll 2 with a little alt-country tune mixed in for good measure. Enjoy.
