Reissue of Alex G's Breakthrough 2014 LP on Colored Vinyl with Bonus Tracks!
Two years after its initial release on boutique Brooklyn label Orchid Tapes, Alex G's fourth LP DSU will be reissued on Run For Cover Records in September 2016. Considered by many to be the record that shone a spotlight onto the longtime lo-fi Bandcamp-favorite, DSU is an indie rock record empowered and enlightened by Giannascoli's bedroom-pop sensibilities. An acronym for "Dream State University," DSU's thirteen songs consistently reinvent indie-pop in a way that truly makes the album dream-like, not only because of the serene calmness of tracks like "Skipper" and "Boy," but also in the hauntingly jarring mid-album number "Axesteel" and the kinetic swelling and pitch-shifting "Icehead." What DSU offers as a whole is a collection of songs that endlessly bend existing indie-rock tropes with Alex G's sincere strand of otherness, presenting an early but ambitious portrait of one of the next great songwriters of our time.
