Alex Bleeker & The Freaks
Alex Bleeker & The Freaks
Known primarily for holding down the low end for Real Estate, Alex Beeker is also the creator of a longing, haunting brand of folk with alt rock inflections. A deft plucker on the six-strings himself, Bleeker marshals a backing band that has included Julian Lynch and other members of Real Estate, an infinitely capable rhythm section that brings a healthy dose of psychedelic twang. An eponymous LP in 2009 released by Underwater Peoples earned him some much-deserved solo respect, and he has since joined the Domino Recording family, leaving the rock community thirsty for a follow-up.
When kids from the 80s dreamed about people from the 60s thinking about life in the future.

Album out on Mexican Summer!
Weyes Blood
Weyes Blood
Natalie Weyes Blood (originally Weyes Bluhd) has existed in the grime-ghost fringe-music catacombs since at least 2006, starting as a conventional folk singer in an unamplified universe, then transforming into a more a crouched/hieroglyphic electronic chasm style, culminating in a European tour with Axolotl. After two seasons of hibernation and a relocation to Baltimore, she materialized her 'Blood In Bluhd Out' evolution and began writing/playing the darkly haunted narcotic drifter ballads that make up The Outside Room, her first official full-length.
