Adam Green: Minor Love (Rough Trade)

 

Of all the anti-folk poster boys and girls-Jeffrey Lewis, Lude, Kimya Dawson-none tosses the pie quite like ex-Moldy Peaches frontman Adam Green. On his latest long player, the singer-songwriter seems more sophisticated, but that’s not to say that there aren’t any tales of Goblin girlfriends flinging the aforementioned pies and other hurtful stuff at him.

With snippets of The Velvet Underground on certain tracks (‘What Makes Him Act So Bad’ and ‘Cigarette Burns Forever’), Adam’s point of view is as frank as it is grim. So, f*ck them happy love songs and put this on…

LISTEN TO: ‘Goblin’
IF YOU LIKE THIS YOU’LL DIG: The Velvet Underground, Moldy Peaches, Jeffrey Lewis
RATING: 3.5
