DSU

Poll a dozen young indie-rock heads about their favorite Internet-only cult acts, and there’s a decent chance at least one will mention Philadelphia’s Alex G. A 21-year-old college kid with an uncanny ear for sad, pretty melodies and trebly riffs, he’s been uploading his DIY dorm-room jams to increasing online acclaim since 2010. With any luck, this accomplished full-length debut will be his ticket to a wider audience. It’s easy to hear echoes of heroes from Elliott Smith to Guided By Voices in introvert anthems like “After Ur Gone,” “Harvey,” “Black Hair” and “Boy” – but the more you listen, the more obvious it is that Alex G is a bright new talent in his own right.
