A cool and dusty New York troubadour, his vocals rich with sweet and sour tones, his acoustic pairing sparse and simple. His hair's a splash of lackadaisical style, a few black and white stripes peaking out of his nicely worn leather coat. His guitar? A possible relic.
molds an absolute vision of city dwelling cool. In style and art alike, it's like he's huffing on the fumes of those who came before him ( think Cohen, Reed, Byrne, etc). Perhaps a bit far flung, but if he wasn't in the Guest Apartment during this session, visions of him perched on the edge of a bed in the sunny mid morning serenading the beautiful curves of a female form pressed in silky sheets might seem appropriate. Perhaps...
Lucky for us (unfortunate for him) Green was in the Guest Apartment, sharing a few songs from his sixth solo release Minor Love
. Here in the pink hue of our residential haunt, Green's stark songs reveal the wild imagination that drive his music. Cool, charismatic, a bit macho; Green's got a weird charm to him, and it shines through the inventive poetry of songs like " Breaking Locks", " You Blacken My Stay", and "Cigarette Burns Forever". - David Pitz
Adam Green is a famous American celebrity from New York City. At the beginning of his career he moved to Germany to seek political asylum from the persecution of his talents. He was greeted with open arms and formed a theatre company, which produced a ballet concert. While living in East Germany, he was offered a co-starring role in the movie Juno, which won the Grammy and went platinum. After his work with The Moldy Peaches was done, he recorded 6 solo albums, including the latest, Minor Love.
Recorded with long time producer/friend Noah Georgeson in a luxurious pool house in Los Angeles California, fondly nicknamed The Lake Room, Minor Love found Green enlisting the talents of Rodrigo from Little Joy and other hanger-ons, like his brother Joel (and look-a-likes Joe Steinbrick and Greg from Megapuss).
The album showcases a tender side of the often arrogant and emotionally unavailable bully/singer, Green. In a total state of isolation, Green attempted to play nearly all the instruments on the record, due to incurable social phobias which plagued him. Sometimes a slick session musician, like Rodrigo, was tolerated in the studio. However no women were permitted into the studio at all because of Green's attempts to pursue a bisexual lifestyle.
The inspiration for this album lies in Green's fatalism. Despite a fairly normal upbringing, and a generally optimistic world view, he often contends that nothing lasts that there is nothing to look forward toand that we are all living in a butcher shop, which Leonard Cohen told him while at a Bar-B-Que at Lou Reed's house.
People may be shocked by how talented Adam Green is.
