Alex Izenberg - Harlequin (CD)

Ships In 2/3 Days
Harlequin may be Alex Izenberg'€™s debut album proper, but it also marks the culmination of over five years of highly prolific writing and recording under a variety of pseudonyms.

The record is almost a study in distraction - a restless, feverish dream sequence which variously invokes Scott Walker'€™s obtuse, off kilter worlds of sound, Simon and Garfunkel'€™s psychedelic yet practical string arrangements, the vaudevillian pomp and preening of Wild Beasts'€™ early material and Grizzly Bear'€™s pastoral early steps. All this is cut through with moments of total silence, patches of noise, found sound and countless dynamic left turns and moments of non-sequitur.
