Alex Calder-Suki and Me
While comparisons can be a good indication of what you’re about to hear I kind of feel like it can take away from the artists’ sense of individuality as well. So with that being said, don’t confuse Mac DeMarco with Captured Tracks’ latest addition (and former Makeout Videotape member) Alex Calder. It’s evident from Calder’s debut single “Suki and Me” that there’s a certain nonchalant stupor about his music but even still, the track has a special way of grabbing a tight hold of the listener and surrounding them in a smoke filled haze that’s riddled with numbing reverb, vintage rock tendencies, and contorted psychedelia. With “Suki and Me”, things are looking quite promising for Alex Calder and because of that, I’m definitely looking forward to hearing his debut Time EP when it drops on March 26th.
