It’s an album from his SoundCloud days. He released like 10 “albums” in two years or something before getting a proper deal. He wanted this one updated and to stand alongside his “pro” output, so he re-recorded the whole thing in 2017.

So, yeah. New-old CSR

Is anyone a fan of (Sandy) Alex G? Another prolific lo-fi bedroom recorder who moved to a label after many years.

Some of the stuff is a bit cutesy for me but a great deal of his stuff I find to be brilliant. More interesting than CSH for me (although it's unfair to compare just because of their career trajectories)

For fans of Sparklehorse, Elliott Smith.

One of the worst names/monikers in history, and that was BEFORE he added (Sandy) to it for legal reasons, but yeah. He’s ok. I’ve heard some stuff of his that I really like, and some other stuff that’s just OK.

No, I disagree. At least you can say “Portugaltheman” and have it flow off the tongue. What the fuck am I supposed to do with a paranthetical (Sandy)? Depending on the style, the paranthetical could mean it’s actually not supposed to be pronounced!

I feel like “Portugal. The Man” translates better into spoken word than fucking “(Sandy) Alex G.” Also, why the fuck is THAT the way he alters his name? That’s a horrendous way to alter a goddamn name. How the fuck is it that FKA Twigs work it out, but apparently Alex G can’t?

ALSO also, “Alex G” is a totally garbage ass name in the first place! He should have just gone by his given name — which I’m guessing it’s Alex (something that starts with a G) — in full. Instead, he really bent over backwards to take an already shifty name and make it goddamn proposterous!!


AAAAHHH

WHY COULDNT VIET CONG STAY VIET CONG? I DONT GIVE A SHIT ABOUT PREOCCUPATIONS BUT I LOVED VIET CONG!!! They should have changed it to “Viet Congress.” Or just fucking left it. Fuck’s sake!!

Portugal. The Man has A PERIOD IN THE MIDDLE OF THE FUCKING NAME. That surpasses everything you hate about this Sandy clown.

I think this is all distracting from the fact (Sandy) Alex G makes great music. He could be called Diarrhea Waterslide for all I care.

THAT WOULD BE AN IMPROVEMENT!!!

To be fair though he does have some damn great songs. Specifically thinking of “Sarah,” from a couple of years ago. Reminds me of the best lo-fi bedroom pop of days past. Keys kick in at exactly the right moment for maximum effect. A spiritual offspring of Neutral Milk and some of the Elephant 6 stuff.

Yes yes I know. Very silly. But again, at least you know what to call them. “Portugaltheman.” Easy. Is it Alex G? Sandy Alex G? (Sandy) Alex G only when written? And again, Alex G was already terrible... adding the Sandy would have been fine (like maybe he’s a sandy blonde?) but adding a PARANTHETICAL WORD OF INDETERMINATE MEANING just makes it worse.

When “Portugaltheman” changes their name to make it even worse and more of a pain in the ass to read, write and say, then maybe I’ll concede that it’s worse.

I like his music a lot. Rocket was a very entertaining album.
