On Our Radar
Friday, November 30, 2012
We simply cannot choose whose style we salivate over more of this musical duo – Adam or Binki? It’s a sartorial toss-up! Adam’s penchant for flare will make you ditch the skinnies and seriously re-evaluate your stance on the bell-bottomed jean. Binki is the reigning queen of effortless 70’s style, with accessorizing skills that are not to be messed with.
The unlikely two have veered from their previous projects – Adam with the quirky snark of the Moldy Peaches and Binki with the California cool threesome Little Joy – to concoct an intimately enchanting new album that rings of late 60s folk pop. Their self-titled album will be released on January 29, 2013, but three songs have been released to hold us over until then. Our favorite, “Here I Am,” froths ethereal melodies wreathed with heartfelt, metaphoric renderings of love lost. The song is a bittersweet ode to romantic reflections of both song-writers.
Adam and Binki played their first-ever show together recently at Le Poisson Rouge in Manhattan – and we wanted to put them in our pocket. Their rapport is endearing and adorable in a way that lets the audience into their inside jokes and banterful ways. When they laughed, we laughed.
Here is a vignette from the duo on their newly released single “Here I Am” and two other newly released tracks. Listen to “Here I Am” below.
