Former Moldy Peaches singer and artist Adam Green has teamed up with Little Joy‘s Binki Shapiro and made a sun-drenched, late 60′s inspired folk-pop album. Adam Green & Binki Shapiro‘s self-titled record is out January 29th on Rounder Records and is really just the perfect little summertime album. The short, but sweet record is filled with catchy arrangements and beautiful vocals, but only clocks in at just under 28 minutes in length. I know I’ll be wearing it out in no time just like I did with the Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger and Smokey & Miho, both wonderful duet projects as well.
The collaboration came about when Adam who’s released a number of successful solo albums sang back up vocals on Little Joy’s debut record. That led to a supporting slot on their tour in Brazil where he got to know Binki better and the idea blossomed from there, “I really, really liked Binki’s voice – it’s just amazing — and she was the number-one person I wanted to collaborate with.”
The duo is about to embark on a mini West Coast tour starting on January 27th at the Griffin in San Diego and ending on February 2nd at the Chapel in San Francisco. Tickets are also still available for their record release show at Los Angeles’ Bootleg Theatre on January 29th via Ticketfly. Definitely pick up their new album next week as well as a ticket to one of their upcoming shows before they sell out, which should be any day now.
