New Music from Alex G

I don’t think that Alex Giannascoli, or Alex G, ever stops writing. Before he blew up, he had tons of tracks on bandcamp, some of which later got wider releases. This new track and video definitely has a softer, songwriter approach, filled with great accompaniment to elevate the track. There’s a softness to his voice, matched by the band behind him in their playing style; it all feels so slow, purposefully slow, of course. He’s still bringing in some of his songwriter flare, but in this new music, it looks that he’s gone out to move entirely beyond the bedroom moniker that might have followed him for a bit. This is a gem, and it’ll appear on Rocket, released by Domino on May 19th.

New Music From BOBBY

Recently put together band BOBBY have this quirky new tune “Ginger (Water Birth)” that I’ve been jamming this morning.  The song is set to appear on a new self-titled album from the group due out June 21st on Partisan Records.  If you dig this tune, the band has graciously decided to stream their new album prior to its release date over on NPR’s First Listen.  Give it a spin.
