• (sandy) alex g Rocket (CD, £10.50)

    label: domino

    ‘Rocket’ is (Sandy) Alex G’s eighth full-length release - an assured statement that follows a slate of humble masterpieces, many of them self-recorded and self-released, stretching from 2010’s ‘RACE’ to his 2015 Domino debut, ‘Beach Music’.  ‘Rocket’s sessions began shortly after ‘Beach Music’s ended, with Alex tracking songs at home, by himself and with friends, in the gaps between a hectic 2015 and 2016 touring schedule (including working with Frank Ocean on ‘Blonde’).  ‘Rocket’ was mixed by Jacob Portrait (Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Bass Drum of Death), who also lent his hand to Beach Music, giving the album a fine-tuning that retains the homespun personality of earlier efforts.  CD in jewel case with 12 page booklet.
