Alexander Biggs “Laundromat” – Listen

Australian Alexander Biggs sings of a painful break-up on today’s song ‘Laundromat‘.   His is the ultra lo-fi pioneered by the likes of Bright Eyes, scratchy guitar and an unaffected vocal with a few additional sounds added in a bedroom studio.

The twenty-six year old captures the hurt of a bruised romance – early on it sounds as if he initiated it all “Wednesday night you took me to a magic show /  The same night I said I was gonna leave / Secretly I hoped that there was something up your sleeve / But I don’t think I believed it.”  By the end of the song though you have to wonder where the truth lies “But I hope that you’re okay / Oh I hope that you’re okay / Dancing on my grave.”

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
