If you remember Little Joy (Fabrizio Moretti’s side project), you might recognize Binki Shapio and her soft, Jane Birkin-esque vocals. This time around, she’s taken on another project with the studly Moldy Peaches member Adam Green appropriately titled Adam & Binki.
This collaboration is a compilation of vintage-sounding duets a la Nancy Sinatra and Lee Hazlewood from the 60s. The first song we have to share with you a cover of James Gang’s “Collage,” and oh, what a sugary-sweet track this is! The delicate vocals layered on top of a psychedelic backdrop create a restrained pop melody that prompts us to dust off our vintage Serge Gainsbourg vinyls and daydream about romance and older times.
Their forthcoming album is due to release in late January via Rounder/Decca.
