Adam Green and Binki Shapiro could easily be a comedy duo.

Hearing Binki joke about Adam’s love for Justin Timberlake’s new album and a wild story about his run in with a snake, their appreciation for each others quirks and natural chemistry is undeniable. You can see it the moment you meet them and you can hear it in their songs too.

Fans of Adam’s work with the Moldy Peaches (and the song “Anyone Else But You”, which launched him to mainstream recognition after it was used in the movie “Juno”) will love the simple, sweet “Here I Am”.  I was also a big fan of their heartbreaking harmonies on Adam’s track “Getting Led” and their set closer “Collage” – a cover of the James Gang song. (look for it in an upcoming edition of our “We’ve Got it Covered” series!)
