Alex and Andrew March 2014
My good friend Alex has released a new Dirty Beaches instrumental album called "Stateless" and it's streaming right now on Pitchfork.
Back in March of this year Alex and I hung out and made some music together. The project is still on going so I have no idea when we will hear any of it but I will be heading over to Lisbon in November to hang out some more with him and hopefully make some more music together.
I got to hear bits and pieces of this album when Alex was in town earlier this year and I was blown away then. Listening to it now, I am stunned at how well it captures a mood and a sense of space - or a lack thereof. Alex seems to be continuing with themes of displacement that he has explored on previous albums. I'm excited to get a copy of this in the mail.
