ALEX G ANNOUNCES NEW ALBUM 'BEACH MUSIC', OUT OCT 9; STREAM NEW SONG 'BUG'
(Sandy) Alex G | 08/13/15
Philadelphia’s Alex Giannascoli aka Alex G is pleased to announce his forthcoming new full-length album and his first for Domino, Beach Music, on October 9, 2015. Listen to the album’s debut track ‘Bug’ below.
Beach Music was written and recorded in Giannascoli’s apartment, between the Fall of 2014 and the Spring of 2015, during breaks from touring with the likes of Speedy Ortiz, Cymbals Eat Guitars and Elvis Depressedly. While its predecessors often came in uninterrupted bursts—from his head to his Bandcamp page in a matter of hours and days—Beach Music was shaped in part by Giannascoli adapting to life as a touring musician. Songs were written within months of one another rather than all at once, with influences ranging from noise music to piano-based laments to Southern rock to the rhythmic focus of techno—whatever he happened to be most interested in at the time. “Every song is coming from a different place,” he says. “It branches off in all these directions, but it has its own sound. It’s not something I do intentionally, but I’m the common thread."
The album, his seventh full-length, follows on from previous beloved albums DSU (Orchid Tapes), Trick, and Rules, which have led to a fervent cult fan base, a number of Artist To Watch designations from outlets such as Fader and Rolling Stone, and a dedicated live audience who sing along with every word.
