Weird to see a new song from Binki Shapiro today as I just listened to Little Joy’s wonderful album for the first time in a while, and tweeted this. Big coincidence I guess.
We may never know if we will get a new song from Little Joy, but at least we will have an album from Adam Green & Bikini Shapiro. You know Binki as 1/3 of Little Joy, and Adam Green as one half of The Moldy Peaches (remember them?!)
Their debut self titled album will come out next January 29 via Rounder/Concord Records. Today they have released “Here I Am”, a song from the album, as a free download.
If you can imagine both Adam/Binki’s parts of their respective groups, then added together, that’s what you have with their new partnership. It’s lovely old fashioned duet folk rock. It’s a breath of fresh air during a time where the music scene is anything but organic. This is as old school as it gets, and it’s all the better for it.
