There’s hardly a second when Alex Giannascoli’s voice can’t be heard in “Walk Away,” the opener of his
latest album, House of Sugar. The distended, pitched-up wail that introduces the track gives way to
cascading layers of his more familiar intonations. “Someday I’m gonna walk away from you,” he sings;
“not today.” These are the song’s only words, repeated again and again for more than four minutes. In the
repetition, emphasis shifts from “someday” to “not today” and back, leaving the listener in a space of
uncertainty. It’s in this space that Giannascoli—the 26-year-old artist better known as Alex G—lingers
throughout the album’s thirteen songs: between backwards and forwards, past and future, one voice and
another. On House of Sugar, his third full-length for Domino and ninth overall, Alex inhabits a diverse
range of musical and emotional points-of-view (often simultaneously), in turn illuminating the tension that
hides in the shadow of desire.
