Adam Green's Silky, Husky Man Voice

Posted by on Fri, Dec 28, 2012 at 1:15 PM

I got two Adam Green songs on a mix CD from my first boyfriend right when the album Garfield came out and I became obsessed. Years later, I went to see the Pharmacy play when they were in their first incarnation as a sloppy party-punk band, and they happened to do a very punk rock cover of Adam Green's "Dance With Me." That alone made me want to be best friends with them, and consequently we ended up being roommates for years and years afterwards. These events helped to cement Adam Green as part of the soundtrack of my late teens/early 20's.

After falling out of touch with his music for a few years, I have a totally renewed interest because his new EP is pulling out Lee Hazelwood/Nancy Sinatra-style duets with his new counterpart, Binki Shapiro. Contrary to the whimsical dynamic he had with Kimya Dawson in his Moldy Peaches days, this album comes off as a more serious venture, though it's the same silky, husky man-voice, and ever-present absurd overtones... The song "Here I Am" from the album was made available for download online, there are three tracks available on Spotify that I've been listening to on repeat, and the full album is set to be released at the end of January.
