Adam Green, 'Sixes and Sevens' (Rough Trade)

5
Sixes and Sevens
Critical Mass
Label: Rough Trade

by Stacey Anderson

"Women prefer a menagerie of clowns," Adam Green intones on "Leaky Flask," so he gives the ladies all his dork incarnations: Country Adam, Ragtime Adam, Morbidly Tense and Singing About Ponies Adam. On his fifth solo album, the erstwhile Moldy Peach wears out his welcome at 20 tracks, each one unrelated to the last and haphazardly abandoned around the oneand- a-half minute mark. It's still his most consistent mix of offhanded pop and absurdist Beat lyricism; the gadfly attention span is frustrating, but you've gotta marvel at that kind of disconnection from reality.
