New album: Alex Rex || Paradise

UK singer/drummer Alex Neilson has played with Trembling Bells, Bonnie “Prince” Billy, Shirley Collins and Current 93, and under his solo moniker Alex Rex he has now released his fourth full-length. Paradise is a good one, with 13 psych-folk songs of life, love and loss. Musically it goes in all directions, but Neilson’s versatile gritty voice keeps things together. This LP is an Eldorado for music lovers who like to name influences and genres. For example, watch the video for one of the standout tracks, What’s Shouted In The Dark (The Dark Shouts Back), which lyrically nods to New York Dolls and Nick Lowe.
