Adam Green & Binki Shapiro

In the grand, Gainsbourgian tradition of ‘are they or aren’t they dating’ duets – they’re apparently not, by the way – boy-about-Brooklyn Adam Green and ex-Little Joy valley girl Binki Shapiro have coupled their bi-coastal indie wiles via a new eponymous collaboration. With a debut record en route on 28 Jan 2013, Adam and Binki are also playing London’s Bush Hall on 14 Nov.

To publicise all that, they’ve cordially shared a track from the new LP in the pretty, prim and proper ‘Here I Am’. Okay, so it lacks the crack-themed wise-cracks of Green’s past escapades, but there may still be scope within the Green-Shapiro connexion for, say, a ‘Some Velvet Morning’, a ‘Bonnie And Clyde’, an ’03 Bonnie And Clyde’, or even a ‘Kids’. Who knows.
