Alex Delivery is not advised for the ADD addled. On the Brooklyn based indie kraut outfit’s Star Destroyer, the majority of tunes stretch well over nine minutes — and even then, take their time reaching a redeeming stride. But do a little digging and bear with the band’s starry-eyed caravan be rewarded. “Sheath-Wet” is an example; the track doesn’t find a sweet spot until 3:30, but builds to something better with each passing minute marker from then out.
If you’re feeling patient and are inclined to invest a little time with AD, though, you should start with “Komad,” the record’s lead track and standout — also clocking in over ten minutes, but a better model for the Delivery’s kraut jamz.
