Singer songwriters can be the most boring and pretentious music you can listen to if it?s done the wrong way. Or it can be a beautiful and thoughtful island in the ocean of music that pass by my ears every day. Alexi sure has a place on that island, cause this is a VERY beautiful four song EP somewhere between Wilco, David Gray, Coldplay and Lloyd Cole but also with a retro-vibe from the early 70?s Nick Drake albums. And he sure plays in the same division. First out ?It?s Only Fear? is very nice, but it?s in the second song it?s happening. The awesome ?Orange Sky? with a soft drumbeat, an acoustic guitar and Alexi?s cool slideguitar painting a song, so beautiful. So naked. So soft. It?s just a four piece EP and my desire is a full-length album from this guy soon. It will be a killer. And if a guy like Daniel Lanois would produce it, I could just imagine the result. That without saying that this EP is bad produced. Not at all. It?s very well produced. But Lanois together with this beautiful voice. Phew. Probably the best CD I would hear that year. I must mention last one out also ? ?Song For You? cause it is so beautiful. Do yourself a favour a buy yourself a copy of this EP now. One of the best voices I have heard in a long time.
