Timi Alexander “The Ballad of a Keg Heart”

This starts normally enough, just a nice, soulful, and sad piano ballad, but after a few seconds it’s clear there’s something a little weird and truly off-kilter happening here, right from the title on down, which makes it kind of special. Timi’s vocal is angsty, and occasionally over the top, with falsetto flourishes, and 1 large growl, and chews all the scenery around it. Then about halfway through some weird post-rock fuzz invades the landscape, and hangs out for the remainder of the song, and what I’m saying is, this  really is something else. Weird and wonderful…
