Win Tickets to See Adam Green

Sure, it seems like Adam Green's ex-bandmate Kimya Dawson is getting all the accolades for last year's Juno soundtrack, which is funny since he co-wrote the biggest hit on that record, but folks should be directing their focus on Green's new cabaret leanings, leaving his old anti-folk tunes in the dust. His latest album, Sixes & Sevens, mixes Lee Hazelwood's cinematic sonic styling with a sly sexiness that would do Serge Gainsbourg proud. The 20 songs on the album leap all over the place stylistically, covering everything from Memphis driven soul to quirky half-tunes better suited to a carnival calliope. Through it all Green displays an astonishing range and derring-do that skirts the edge of complication only to be reined in by solid songcraft.
