At only 22 years old, Philadelphia-based artist Alex G has already built a catalog of seven full-length albums. Since self-releasing a single from his dorm room at Temple University in 2011, the musician has developed an impressive musical career, almost solely through Garageband recordings released for free on Bandcamp.
2015 has designated the beginning of a new chapter in Alex G’s career. Following his performance at South by Southwest, he announced that Domino Recording Co. would release his upcoming full-length album, titled Beach Music. This Friday marked the official release of the album, coinciding with a record release show at Baby’s All Right in Brooklyn. Beach Music has already received a great deal of positive press from the likes of Rolling Stone, Pitchfork, New York Times, and many others.
Alex G is currently on tour in Europe. Toward the end of October, he will begin a U.S. tour spanning the Northeast and Midwest. To see if he’s playing near you, check out the tour dates here.
