Album Notes
An album of love and pain, of desperation and determination, of denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance. The fourth solo album from bass player/songwriter Alex Wilson chronicles a year's emotional and geographical journey as he left the aftermath of a crushing breakup and relocated from California's North Bay to the live music capital of the world, Austin, Texas.
This album also finds Alex discovering "what sounds like me". Bass-prominent funk grooves backed by live drums and distorted 808s, heavy metal guitars supported by synth pads and sequencers, any single song pulling influences from Prince, Pink Floyd, Peter Gabriel, and Pantera.
