Vinyl LP pressing. 2014 album from Philadelphia-based singer/songwriter Alex Giannascoli, more commonly known as Alex G. Though only 21 years of age, and still a student at Philadelphia's Temple University, DSU is Alex G's fifth album. All recorded at home, almost exclusively solo, and, until recently, all self-released and available only via Bandcamp; the volume of his work online - combined with it's vitality - has helped build a fervent cult fan base. Wise beyond his years, Alex's lyrics draw upon personal experiences whilst conveying something universal as if touching upon topics with a world-weary authority. Sonically, his palette fluctuates from the rolling rhythms of album opener 'After Ur Gone' to the distorted atmospherics of 'Hollow'; a shift that makes more sense when you realize Alex counts Silver Jews, Aphex Twin, Lucinda Williams and Boards of Canada amongst his diverse musical reference points. Everything is tied together by the ever present winding open spaces of his languid acoustic strums and the meandering melodies of that classic indie aesthetic.
