Anti Folk pioneer Adam Green is bringing his lush brand of lo-fi indie to Berlin on the 29th of October.
Rising to fame with New York’s The Mouldy Peaches, who formed way back in 1994, Adam’s sound has evolved again and again and again since then. This ranges from the arch crooning of 2002’s Friends of Mine to the sunny, Nancy and Lee evoking duo he formed with Little Joy’s Binki Shapiro back in 2013, to this year’s woozy and wry offering Engine’s of Paradise.
Green is something of an artistic polymath and a dizzyingly prolific one at that. Along with nine solo albums, he’s directed two visionary features (2011’s The Wrong Ferrari, and 2016’s Aladdin), and has exhibited his art all over the world. A tragicomic, optimistic, surreal quality pervades Green’s work, no matter the medium.
Expect an evening of swooning, crooning, storytelling music from one of the most distinctive voices in music
Adam is returning to Germany, where he’s been warmly received, particularly since 2005’s single Gemstones made it to #4 in the charts and stayed there for 16 weeks. If you’re lucky enough to have nabbed tickets to this sold-out show, expect an evening of swooning, crooning, storytelling music from one of the most distinctive voices in music, in one of Berlin’s most intimate venues.
Get down to Bi Nuu early since support comes from LA alt-country darling Jackie Cohen, whose hazy, dreamy and highly literate brand of Americana will surely be breezing all over the airwaves soon enough.
