Alex G – “Salt”

Alex Giannascoli’s “Bug” suggested that even after making the leap from Bandcamp prodigy to Domino signee, the prolific indie rocker would continue kicking out the docile lo-fi guitar jams that have become his stock in trade. “Salt,” the second song Alex G is sharing from Beach Music, shows how wide Giannascoli’s wheelhouse can become without compromising its core tenets. A molasses lurch tricked out with low-budget keyboard sounds, it’s a slowcore-meets-vaporwave ballad that shows how distinct this guy’s artistic voice has become no matter what the ingredients. Listen below.

Beach Music is out 10/9 on Domino. Pre-order it from iTunes or Domino Mart.
