Review: Adam Green, ‘Minor Love’

SPIN Rating: 6 of 10
Release Date: February 16, 2010
Label: 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.
