Alexander – Truth
October 10, 2012
Ahh, the heartbreaks, thrills, and joys of being a hippie hobo~
Trying to keep the fire burning here, so I present you with Alexander’s song Truth. While this comes from his self-titled solo debut album released in 2011, Alexander has been around for some time now. Under the name of Alex Ebert he was previously the lead singer and songwriter in the band Ima Robot, and is still active in Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros (they actually just released a new album earlier this year).
Truth, with its easy guitar, drowsy vocals, and the whistling (I’m a sucker for whistling), makes for a great chill piece reminiscent of the carefree hippie pop/rock of the 60s. After listening through, it really does make you feel relaxed and a little lethargic. I think we all need a bit of good ol’ nostalgic sound every now and then.
