This is very different for Beach Slang...and VERY pretty...like, prepare for goosebumps pretty. James Alex is releasing a stripped back EP this fall under the name Quiet Slang, revisiting/re-imagining/re-working a couple of their own songs and taking on a couple choice covers. With piano. And strings. And other pretty things.
The collection is called the We Were Babies & We Were Dirtbags EP. It'll be out on October 20th. Check out the track list and the beautiful Quiet Slang version of "Bad Art & Weirdo Ideas" below.
01. Future Mixtape For The Art Kids
02. Bad Art & Weirdo Ideas
03. Androgynous (The Replacements cover)
04. Thirteen (Big Star cover)
And for comparison, here's the original version of the song from 2015.
When I talked to James at the July Summer Block Party, Big Star was part of the conversation....and check out the shirt he was wearing pre-show ;)
