It’s hard to imagine ex-Moldy Peach Adam Green’s dull, Strokes-style anti-folk appealing to anyone but his obliging friends and family. His bored delivery and ridiculous lyrics about peanut butter sandwiches and rich kids make his two-minute tunes on this 20-song binge stretch out painfully into what feels like forever.
While When A Pretty Face could easily score a Wes Anderson scene, Green’s ill-conceived foray into stream-of-consciousness spoken-word rap on That Sounds Like A Pony should be reserved for use in CIA interrogations. Plus, he brings in all three members of Hanson to sing backup on an idiotic song titled Twee Twee Dee. Who thought that could possibly be a good idea?
