Trick by Alex G - Review

I found out about Alex G. from the song “Sarah” and adored the song. My infatuation with the song led me to listen to the rest of the album.

The sixteen track album is the perfect listen on a rainy fall day. The alternative, distorted, folk-like vibe of the music paired with the emotional lyrics makes for a very unique sound that scratches my brain. The sad lyric and upbeat backing is reminiscent of the Smith’s and their style.

After a full listen of the album, the song “16 Mirrors” stands out the most to me. The background vocals paired with the acoustic guitar differentiates this track from the others on the album. Though the sound is slightly different, it still sounds cohesive with the rest of the album. The meaning of the album, and all of the songs individually, is left up for the list
