Alexander F

Alexander F brings explosive garage pop to Baby's All Right on 02.11 for LP release

Alexander F is electric, loud, and something that you're not likely to forget, and from the opening bass hits of new single "Swimmers," you can tell that they're here to get rowdy. The Brooklyn-based garage pop band offers wild musings on the absurdity of life, but serve it up with a side punk snarls and raucous beats--yeilding a sound that's as fun and unhinged as it is utterly catchy. Check them out at Baby's All Right 2/11 alongside Total Slacker, Exhibition, and Really Big Pinecone for their new record release, but do yourself a favor and stream them below in the meantime. - Olivia Sisinni

   

NYC super-group alert: Alexander F, live at Union Pool on 12.18

What do Rubblebucket, Bear In Heaven, and Delicate Steve have in common, besides being based in NYC? Each of these musical projects contributes to new "super-group" Alexander F with a band member. Thankfully, this new musical project doesn't sound like a mix of those three break out artists, but rather like a devastatingly fun version of the loud/quiet/loud rock of the '90s, updated in a direction that's more modern and more punk at once. We are digging their two Bandcamp songs (streaming below), which bode very well indeed for a night of abandon and debauchery at Union Pool on December 18. Kalmia Traver of Rubblebucket will be DJing.
