(Sandy) Alex G, who originally gained notoriety from his self-recorded Soundcloud demos, has allowed his newest release to act as evidence of his honed skillset as a song writer. House of Sugar is complete with the pitch shifts, plodding rhythm, unignorable melodies and the musical intimacy that has become his trademark.

While the acoustic, lo-fi sounds of his earlier works remain but there is a newfound consistency across this textured album and its thirteen tracks ebb and flow with intention. It’s as if (Sandy) Alex G has developed the confidence to refine his sound without losing any of what makes him special. Most simply, it is full of all the things that make Alex G fans, Alex G fans.
