Adam Green, ‘Minor Love’ (Fat Possum)
Juno soundtrack star Kimya Dawson has far outshone her former Moldy Peaches bandmate, so with his sixth solo effort, Adam Green tries maturity on for size. It’s a good fit, even if you keep waiting for a punch line that never comes (he’s the author of “Choke on a Cock,” after all). But Minor Love still packs some Jonathan Richman–esque quirk, as Green croons in a Lou Reed deadpan about goblins, flatulence, and other concerns over solidly constructed lo-fi tunes. He’s certainly not growing up too fast, but he is growing up.
