Singer-songwriter Heather Greene and Powerman 5000 co-founder Adam Williams, the duo behind the mellow electronica sound of Argon 40, are throwing a listening party at the Chelsea Hotel tonight—and what with Greene being one of the world’s only female whiskey experts and an official Glenfiddich Ambassador, it’s also an evening of whisky tastings. What’s not to like?
Greene came to the brown booze after moving to Scotland a couple of years ago to explore her heritage and work on her music. Pretty soon she became fascinated with whisky. This is her first collaboration coming off her smoky 2009 solo album Sweet Otherwise.
At the Chelsea, Greene will lead tastings of the single malt Scotch as Williams provides the soundtrack with tracks taken from their collaboration Fair Lawn, which comes out in January. It might remind you of the poptronica of Bittersweet--check out the track When the Words Don’t Come and the cover of Tom Petty’s Free Fallin’ below, or hear the whole album at argon40music.com.
