House Of Sugar

    (Sandy) Alex G, aka singer, songwriter and musician Alex Giannascoli, announces new album ‘House of Sugar’. The album is the Philadelphian’s ninth overall and third for Domino.

    Giannascoli worked closely with Jacob Portrait, who mixed both ‘Rocket’ and 2015’s ‘Beach Music’ and helped to balance each of ‘House of Sugar’s dense, multi-faceted tracks. As the product of extended focus and planning, ‘House of Sugar’ emerges as Giannascoli’s most meticulous, cohesive album yet: a statement of artistic purpose, showing off his ear for both persistent earworms and shifting textures and the out-there sonic adventurism that’s made previous (Sandy) Alex G records so singular.

    Barry says: From twisted, Beck-y ballads to euphoric synth-led stormers, Alex G has always had an uncanny knack for writing a tune and these richly orchestrated, beautifully constructed off-piste tunes show more and more ability in every passing album. This stuff is properly gorgeous ; heartfelt, soaring and emotive works of genius. Spellbinding from the outset.

    Live At Third Man Records

      Third Man is absolutely ecstatic to be releasing the excellent live document of (Sandy) Alex G's Blue Room performance. Recorded on the 2017 US tour supporting his critically-acclaimed album Rocket (Pitchfork Best New Music) and not long after a notable feature on Frank Ocean's album Blonde, this standalone LP is his first live set to be captured and made widely available for his very loyal fanbase to enjoy.

      Featuring work from self-released tapes, Orchid Tapes and Domino Recordings, this daydreamy and intricate retrospective opens a private window into (Sandy) Alex G's lovely lyrical wordplay and cozy stage persona. Not one to be missed, for real!

      Rocket

      Rocket is (Sandy) Alex G’s eighth full-length release—an assured statement that follows a slate of humble masterpieces, many of them self-recorded and self-released, stretching from 2010’s RACE to his 2015 Domino debut, Beach Music.

      Rocket’s sessions began shortly after Beach Music’s ended, with Alex tracking songs at home, by himself and with friends, in the gaps between a hectic 2015 and 2016 touring schedule (including working with Frank Ocean on Blonde).

      Rocket was mixed by Jacob Portrait (Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Bass Drum of Death), who also lent his hand to Beach Music, giving the album a fine-tuning that retains the homespun personality of earlier efforts.

      STAFF COMMENTS

      Barry says: Uplifting folky plucking, heart-wrenching fiddle work and those heart-melting vocals. It's not all smooth sailing though, with pieces like 'Brick' coming way out of leftfield, you have to hear it to believe it, but the range of talents on display here is mindblowing. Well worth your time.

      Original press release: Lucky Number are thrilled to announce the release of both Trick and Rules the latest albums to be released by the Philadelphia-based songwriter Alex Giannascoli, more commonly known as Alex G. Trick and Rules follow on the acclaimed heels of the November 2014 international release of Alex’s fifth album, DSU. Recorded prior to DSU and previously only available via Alex’s Bandcamp account, the albums have now been professionally mastered and are being made commercially available for the very first time.

      Rules is soaked in the distinctive personality that is Alex G; the professionally mastered versions of these tracks further highlight that Alex has a serious knack for melodic songwriting.
