    Multi-instrumentalist Alex Giannascoli, aka Alex G, is gearing up to release a new full-length, Beach Music, on October 9th through new label home Domino. The 13-track effort follows DSU, one of the best albums of 2014, and serves as his seventh to date. That’s the album artwork above.

    Beach Music was recorded in Giannascoli’s apartment over the course of a few months between touring stints with Speedy Ortiz and Cymbals Eat Guitars. Much of the record was shaped by the artists coming to grips with life as a touring musician; a press release explains further:

    Songs were written within months of one another rather than all at once, with influences ranging from noise music to piano-based laments to Southern rock to the rhythmic focus of techno—whatever he happened to be most interested in at the time. “Every song is coming from a different place,” he says. “It branches off in all these directions, but it has its own sound. It’s not something I do intentionally, but I’m the common thread.”

    Our first look at the new album comes with “Bug”, a dreamy, lo-fi cut. Listen in below, followed by the full tracklist and all of Alex G’s upcoming tour dates.
