Raleigh's merry popsters, Annuals, is this week's featured artist on the All Music Guide's "Artist Spotlight." Their debut album, Be He Me is a joyous occasion, full of rich instrumentation and Adam Baker's wild imagination. The 20-year-old singer/songwriter is hot on the heels of Conor Oberst, Margot & the Nuclear So and So's Richard Edwards, and the Shins as far as writing anthem-ready, emotionally-charged songs. The only catch? There's cheer all over the place, and songs such as "Brother," "Complete or Completing," and "Carry Around" yank indie rock's sourpuss off the floor for some fun. Join the jamboree--Annuals are waiting!
