Adam Green and Binki Shapiro - Adam Green and Binki Shapiro
Released: 28/01/2013 Rounder RecordsAnti-folk’s very own enfant terrible Adam Green releases his first new material since 2010. It’s a collaboration with Binki Shapiro of Little Joy, for which he’s toned down the puerile humour that marked his early releases and embraced his latest incarnation as pop crooner, for a set of numbers that have drawn flattering comparisons to Nancy Sinatra and Lee Hazelwood.

BBC“A wonderful record...” This 10-track ode to the joys of a sad, sweet, mellow but occasionally dark and atmospheric love song is arranged with tender loving care and produced with just enough reverb to remind you of girl-group classics...
This Is Fake DIY“It's nice, if a little lightweight...” It's the Little Joy singer who's the real star of the show, whether you know it yet or not. She takes centre stage on the majority of the songs, her voice sharing the tone and depth of Karen O at her more subdued...
allmusic“One of the best duet records of the era...” Hits the sweet spot between the off-kilter weirdness of Nancy Sinatra's work with Lee Hazlewood and the sexy swagger of Serge Gainsbourg's duets with his pick of ladies...
The Line of Best Fit“Their debut self-titled duet album is their finest hour...” The melodies are drenched in the nostalgia of the classics and feel as if you have heard them before, many of the songs instantly recognisable and immediately memorable...
Drowned In Sound“A record of cutesy psychedelia...” Like Arab Strap with bellbottoms and flower necklaces in place of the drum machine, Shapiro and Green are a match made in heaven who explore every corner of romantic hell...
