Today sees the release of “America’s Number 1 Greatest Singer!”; Adam Green’s, new album ‘Minor Love’.

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. 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 to…and 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.

To commemorate the release of Green’s new album he has filmed four videos documenting examples of his every day life. Here are two of them:

Buddy Bradley

Breaking Locks

All four videos (Buddy Bradley, Breaking Locks, Boss Inside and Give Them A Token) are available as part of the album to download from iTunes.

Biography

Adam Green is a special guy indeed. He was already making great music (with such titles as “Who’s got the Crack”) at the age of 14 as one half of the anti folk phenomena The Moldy Peaches. He’s since proved himself a prolific solo artist with five albums and counting under his belt. The music has grown with the man and over time we’ve listened to him soak up and introduce influences as far ranging as Nashville honky tonk, Chinese food, Al Green, Sly & the Family Stone, Don Cherry, Dr John and of course bagels. This is the sound of an artist absorbing everything around him and then sonically sharing his world with the listener, if we could, we’d all move there tomorrow.
