What's This?

Easy and Race are probably my favorite records released by Alex G, but since he released the new track “Hollow” from his upcoming record DSU, there’s a feeling that this new material is going to leap frog those two and find a special place in my heart. The Philadelphia based musician was recently featured in The Fader and was dubbed “the Internet’s Secret Best Songwriter,” which I can’t argue with one bit. “Hollow” is an endearing track that showcases Giannascoli’s talented songwriting skills as he vocalizes in a shaky falsetto “you’ve made a big mistake,” which hits you right in the stomach; every little past lover comes to mind. The jangly guitars and dark textures on the song make it sound like a long lost gem of the ’90s. DSU will be released June 17th by Indie Current favorites Orchid Tapes. Anyone interested in owning it on vinyl must patiently wait because the pre-sale for the record has already sold-out, but a repress will come soon so keep an eye out.
