William Alexander - Girls' Basketball
Low fi bedroom pop from William Alexander with Girls' Basketball on Juniper Tree Songs. Sparklehorse meets Trainspotting playing southern influcend Shoegaze. Fun, playful, frequently pretty melancholy and often with some pretty sticky swagger. Drums have a delicious thump to the production, vocals have an understated confidence. Nothing outweighs the whole, just tightly constructed and consistently surprising material. I'd do that thing where one track like Cousin has you feeling the blues and then another like Maze has you breaking your neck. Straight album of 2014 material.
