Alex G (Philadelphia)
Indie Pop

Alexander Giannascoli started recording his own songs when he was 12 and began posting them on Bandcamp when he was in high school, gradually building a cult following with his lo-fi-ish, sometimes quirky, always melodically magnetic take on Indie Rock. After showing a prolific streak that rivals Bob Pollard’s, the young singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist (still in his early 20s) spent last year working on his first “proper” full-length, the engaging DSU, which was released in June of this year on the Orchid Tapes imprint.
