Almost since BEACH SLANG came into being, bandleader JAMES ALEX has taken to performing his group’s heartfelt anthems as more intimate solo renditions. Appropriately dubbed “Quiet Slang,” these alternate reality versions of Beach Slang’s music have now simultaneously been stripped down and fleshed out in the studio to include piano and cello. The result is a collection of songs that peel away the layers of reverb and distortion to lay bare their starkly honest and emotional cores. LP pressed on 180-gram clear vinyl and housed in gold foil jackets. All formats include a download.
