Amoeba Review

01/28/2013

I’ll not beat around the bush and say the collaboration by former Moldy Peaches man Adam Shapiro and Little Joy singer Binki Shapiro doesn’t remind me a whole lot of Lee Hazlewood and Nancy Sinatra’s famed ’60s psych-folk duets. And if that doesn’t do it for you, we are just different people. Green plays the perfect deep-voiced counterpart to Shapiro’s high and breathy alto on the kaleidoscope folk of “Here I Am.” Other sounds buzz from the duo as well, as on the “Heroes”-esque opening of “Just to Make Me Feel Good,” which layers on interesting keyboard sounds to keep it from being cloying. Shapiro gets to play Dusty Springfield in “Casanova,” while Green gleefully sings “everybody’s cheating on each other” with his trademark wit on “Pity Love.” Some of the album’s closing tracks aim for greater grandiosity, but Green and Shapiro sound best when they go light, making you feel like you could float away.
