TRACK | Alex G – Southern Sky

5/5 golden merles

One gentleman that doesn’t necessarily need any further press is Alex G. But if I’m posting daily and I want to keep the quality high every now and again there’ll be a more celebrated/known entity served up. Giannascoli is a great songwriter on their 9th album.

But for those unfamiliar with the sweep and swell of these tracks, or merely revisiting from 2019, what a delicate but elaborate concert of textures and intention it is.

The density is what I find most admirable. There is such a fine synthesis of simple components that successfully conspire into this ornate folk rock tune.

It remains instantly recognizable/catchy while introducing several small experimentations alongside the blunt trauma of tradition. And it builds naturally into this commendable, gilded thing.
