SANDY ALEX G - ROCKET LP
Rocket is Alex G’s 8th full-length—an assured statement that follows a slate of humble masterpieces, stretching to his 2015 Domino debut, Beach Music. Amid recording, Alex made headlines for catching the attention of Frank Ocean; playing guitar on his two 2016 albums, Endless and Blonde. More than stylistic cues, what Alex took from the experience was a confidence in collaboration. Rocket wears this collaborative spirit proudly, and in its numerous contributors presents a restless sense of musical experimentation, effortlessly jumping from sound collage to dreamy folk to bouncing Americana.
