Alex Bleeker & The Freaks – 1/18 – Death By Audio (Brooklyn, NY)

download (19)Alex Bleeker would be plenty awesome if he were only the bassist for Real Estate, but there’s more to him than his work in the New Jersey-based surf-rock band. Bleeker has also kept a long-running going in the form of Alex Bleeker & The Freaks, a group that once consisted of his Real Estate pals but has since evolved into a full-fledged band in its own right. Their 2013 album How Far Away was one of the year’s unexpected delights, ably meshing folk, country, and indie rock into a catchy, pleasant package. Before you give the album a listen, you can check them out at Death By Audio for what should be the best way to spend your Saturday night.
