introducing alex bleeker and the freaks

new jersey folk-rockers alex bleeker & the freaks released their debut LP november 27th on underwater people recordings. a fine tribute to neil young “ditch triology”-era stoned americana, the freaks are a sort of lo-fi/folk-rock all-star group with bleeker (real estate bassist), matt mondanile (ducktails, real estate), martin courtney (real estate), and julian lynch roudning out the roster. over the course of the 30 minute self-titled LP, the freaks show off whiskey-soaked guitar noodling and delicate vocals. the stand out is the mountain man cover animal tracks, perfect for a sunday morning coffee/cigarette sesh.
