||Adam Green & Binki Shapiro CD (2013) |
Binki Shapiro discography Both Adam Green and Binki Shapiro have some indie pop experience behind them, he with the New York City-based band the Moldy Peaches and she with the Los Angeles trio Little Joy, and together they make an elegant, quirky, and melodic sort of late-'60s folk-rock on this debut album, which is full of songs about betrayal and heartbreak, each filtered through a kind of bittersweet and haunting melancholy that comes out ultimately and oddly uplifting. ~ Steve Leggett

||Little Joy CD (2008)
Binki Shapiro CD discography Comprising singer and guitarist Rodrigo Amarante (of Los Hermanos), singer Binki Shapiro, and drummer Fabrizo Moretti (of the Strokes), Little Joy creates with their debut a thoroughly enjoyable album of sweet, simple indie pop. The mood is laid-back and bright, with stylistic flashes of reggae, MPB, folk, soul, and soft rock (with no little influence from the Beatles and the Beach Boys), and the whole is satisfying from beginning to end. It invites the listener to open the windows, turn up the stereo, and kick back. And as seemingly breezy and feel-good as LITTLE JOY might be, the songs are surprisingly durable and invite repeated listens.
Audio Mixers: Ken Thomas; Noah Georgeson; Thom Monahan.

Binki Shapiro Biography
Binki Shapiro songs Artist gained notice when she appeared in videos to promote Beck's The Information. The next year she met the Strokes' Fabrizio Moretti and Los Hermanos' Rodrigo Amarante. Shapiro suggested that the two friends work together, and they asked her to join the band, Little Joy, which released a self-titled album in 2008. Shapiro appeared on albums by Megapuss, Sia, and Beck; soon thereafter, she met Adam Green and the two began collaborating. The breakups each writer was going through informed the finished songs, the first of which were released in 2012 on the Fall EP. The duo's folky duets and incisive lyrics were on display on the full-length Adam Green & Artist, released in early 2013. ~ Tim Sendra
