Alex Napping – “Weak Knees” (Stereogum Premiere)
Alex Cohen’s Austin quartet Alex Napping will release their six-song debut album This Is Not A Bedroom (which they’re calling an LP, not an EP) this fall. “Weak Knees,” the lead single, exists in the same universe as Waxahatchee’s folk-tinged quarter-life-crisis indie rock, and Cohen’s stated influences Pavement and Land Of Talk are evident in the way the band sets striking vocals and dancing high-end guitar riffs against a loping mid-tempo groove. Cohen’s voice sounds killer when she’s reaching for the rafters, too. Listen below.
