Gig Information

(Sandy) Alex G, a.k.a. the singer, songwriter, and musician Alex Giannascoli, today announces debut headline shows in New Zealand. After an excellent showing at 2018's Laneway Festival, (Sandy) Alex G returns for two headline shows in June following the release of universally acclaimed House Of Sugar.

Wed, June 10th • Whammy Bar • Auckland

Thurs, June 11th • San Fran • Wellington

Before signing with Domino in 2015, (Sandy) Alex G had already earned cult status over the course of six self-recorded and largely self-released LPs. Revered by fans and peers alike, those early records were passed around like secret missives between a growing base of enthusiasts. (Sandy) Alex G's following continued to expand with the release of 2015's Beach Music, and with the critical acclaim accompanying the release of 2017's Rocket, America's greatest living songwriter [FADER] was a secret no more.

Let's state a fact: Alex Giannascoli is one of this generation's best artists. - VICE

Giannascoli began writing the songs that would ultimately become House of Sugar in the fall of 2017. Whereas with earlier efforts, such as 2011's self-released Winner or the landmark 2014 release DSU, music was written and recorded at a prolific clip, with these new songs Giannascoli approached the recording process with a newfound deliberateness, concentrating on a smaller collection of songs and laboring over each with more focus and acuity than ever before.

Giannascoli worked closely with Jacob Portrait, who mixed both Rocket and 2015's Beach Music, and helped to balance each of House of Sugar's dense, multi-faceted tracks. As the product of extended focus and planning, House of Sugar emerges as Giannascoli's most meticulous, cohesive album yet: a statement of artistic purpose, showing off his ear for both persistent earworms and shifting textures, and the out-there sonic adventurism that's made previous (Sandy) Alex G records so singular.
