The Moldy Peaches [Explicit Lyrics]

All Music Guide - Staff
Part of the mid-'90s "anti-folk" scene unfolding on New York City's Lower East Side, the Moldy Peaches (Adam Green and Kimya Dawson) were signed by Rough Trade in 2001 and released this lo-fi effort before splitting off to do solo projects. The songs are simple, three-chord pounders that embody the na?vet? of both childhood and punk rock. The duo's contribution to the highly successful Juno soundtrack in 2007 created a renewed interest in them and in this understated debut.

Village Voice - Robert Christgau
This is if-it-sounds-good-say-it music, played and sung with a pretty/noisy imprecision that transcends the gap between folk and punk like nothing since The Velvet Underground, which had the advantage of not knowing the gap existed. Its lyricism is heartbreaking-so tenuous, so vulnerable, so palpably subject to change. But the same record is also funnier than "Love and Theft". First time through I merely felt privileged to reaccess the punk miracle. Fifty plays later I think I've never heard anything like it, though there's some Jonathan Richman in there and some might cite Beat Happening. To me, everything cloying and manipulative in that defunct piece of in-group politics seems effervescent and loving in this cult band a-borning...I love the Moldy Peaches for how they play-not their instruments, nothing so sublimated, just play. They're not afraid to make a mess because they know life is a mess anyway, and although the mess can be painful, some inner confidence lets them fool around with it.

    a great record

    this CD is brilliant for what it is. Don't expect good music, or anything PC. Only know when you buy it that this album is real. It's made by real people about real problems and laughs, not polished megastars. More people should be listening to it.

    Intriguing....

    The Moldy Peaches are a little, somewhat unknown band that don't have "deep" lyrics, and yet they somehow draw you in with their suave, yet raspy-ish voices and cheap melodies. I'm not saying that they're the best band ever, because they're not. They make their music in their apartments. That says something. However, if it is a catchy tune you are looking for, I can easily say that The Moldy Peaches will catch your eye. -Mikala
