Hey Alexa, Put That New Alomar Song On Repeat (And Preorder The Album)
Eddie Gancos is doing everything he can to confirm his place at the top of Akron’s local scene, possibly without even trying. That effort looks and sounds like it’s being invested entirely into the music, especially after what has come out of his Alomar corner. If you haven’t heard Alomar, or the 2016 release “Midwestern”, that’s certainly an excellent place to start.
If, however, you want to jump feet first into your new favorite song, consider the first single off the just announced “Soul Case” album: “Hey Alexa”. Layering the uplifting and “feel-good” capo’d acoustic chord progression with bittersweet and self-reflective heartfelt lyrics, “Hey Alexa” is a strong outing. On top of the easy to follow tune, Todd Thompson delivers a video that fights out of it’s weightclass and wins in the first round. The simple formula in transitions allows Eddie to be the star everywhere from throwback feeling livingrooms to beautiful shots of downtown Akron.
Check out the “Hey Alexa” video below, and set your sights on the new album “Soul Case” set to release July 5th on Small Mammal Records. Set to release via green cassette, or digital! The recently announced official tracklist is also out and below.
