Alex G Announces Album Beach Music on Domino

Alex G announces album, Beach Music 2015.

Songwriter Alex G is pleased to announce his forthcoming new full-length album, Beach Music, to be released via Domino on October 9, 2015. 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.

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 Elvis Depressedly, Cymbals Eat Guitars, and Gardens & Villa. 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-beats and 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.”

Beach Music is available to pre-order now on limited edition deluxe colored vinyl with exclusive Alex G Live at The Headroom bootleg LP, limited edition cassette (exclusive to Bandcamp), CD, and digital download.
