Whereas The Game Of Monogamy was an orchestral album filled with theatrical arrangements, Adult Film favors less ornate, equally impactful instrumentation across its 10 affecting tracks. The album is filled with variations of Kasher's signature blend of ruminative rock/pop, ranging from raucous and barreling ("American Lit," "Truly Freaking Out") to uneasy and undulating ("Where's Your Heart Lie," the dreamy "Lay Down Your Weapons"), from deceptively bright and poppy ("The Willing Cuckold," "A Raincloud is a Raincloud") to tempered and cascading ("You Scare Me To Death," "A Lullaby, sort of"). Lyrically, Kasher is at his incisive best, thematically elastic and touching on aging (self-reflection and taking stock), mortality (one's own and others'), and relationships of all kinds.

Kasher is joined on Adult Film by Sara Bertuldo (bass, vocals), Patrick Newbery (organ, keys, synths, horns), and Dylan Ryan (drums) – who backed him while touring around The Game Of Monogamy – as well as additional artists including Nate Kinsella (drums; of Make Believe and Birthmark) and Laura Stevenson (vocals; of Laura Stevenson and the Cans), among others. The album was mixed by John Congleton (St. Vincent, Wye Oak, Explosions In The Sky) at Elmwood Recording in Dallas, TX.

Allison Weiss (Brooklyn, NY) is an energetic 24-year-old with an electric guitar, an avid online following, and a whole lot of feelings. With her quirky charm and sharp pop sensibilities, Weiss makes losing a little more fun.

"I'm all about catchy, upbeat, feel-good music, but the one thing I seem to aways write about is heartbreak," she recently told Billboard.com, "I say [my songs] sound like your saddest memories sung to the tune of your happiest."

Weiss first picked up a guitar at age 14 in an attempt to impress her high school crush, and though the teenage romance died after one short month, her passion for music lived on.

After moving to Athens, GA in 2005, Weiss spent the next five years in and out of various pseudo-relationships which fueled the fire for one infectious breakup song after another. She toured the southeast relentlessly and wrote constantly, self-releasing three EPs and a fan-funded full length album by the end of 2009.

At the same time, Weiss quietly built up a dedicated internet fanbase and a reputation for shameless self promotion. She gained recognition in the music community for her effective grassroots marketing techniques and spoke on a 2010 SXSW panel about crowdfunding, all while earning a BFA at the University of Georgia.

Now performing with a full band, her live shows are louder and faster and more fun than ever, showcasing her unique brand of punk/folk infused powerpop and knack for keeping the audience wanting more. In August of 2010 she packed her bags and moved to Brooklyn, NY with plans to spend 2011 recording and touring and never looking back.
