Alex G

Status: Emerging

Why You Should Pay Attention: Alex Giannascoli is part of a generation of bedroom songwriters connecting the indie-rock dots between the Pixies, Elliott Smith and Pinback. Mr. G evolved from a Bandcamp superstar via last year's diary of alternative tunings and melodic moroseness, DSU, to a touring machine snagging dates with Gardens & Villa, Cymbals Eat Guitars and Speedy Ortiz.
