Alex G - 'DSU' LP/CS/CD to be reissued 9/16 on RFC

Two years after its initial release on boutique Brooklyn label Orchid Tapes, Alex G’s fourth LP DSU will be reissued on RFC on September 16, 2016 and is currently available for pre-order. Alex G will also embark on a run of tour dates this fall with LVL UP and Courtney Barnett among others (all tour dates below).

Considered by many to be the record that shone a spotlight onto the longtime Bandcamp-favorite artist, DSU is an indie rock record empowered & enlightened by Alex Giannascoli’s bedroom-pop sensibilities. An acronym for “Dream State University,” DSU’s thirteen songs consistently reinvent indie-pop in a way that truly makes the album dream-like, not only because of the serene calmness of tracks like “Skipper” & “Boy,” but also in the hauntingly jarring mid-album number “Axesteel” & the kinetic swelling & pitch-shifting “Icehead.”

What DSU offers as a whole is a collection of songs that endlessly bend existing indie-rock tropes with Alex G’s sincere strand of otherness, presenting an early but ambitious portrait of one of the next great songwriters of our time.
