Rules, an early album from the prodigious Philadelphian singer-songwriter Alex G, is now back in stock on vinyl. Alex's third album was originally self-released digitally on his Bandcamp, but received the physical attention it deserved following the release of his breakthrough fifth album DSU, and was remastered and issued on vinyl in 2015 for the first time. With three more original albums released since, Alex's cult-like fanbase, which includes the likes of Frank Ocean, only ever increases, and Rules remains a firm favourite as more fans discover his prolific back catalogue. Songs like "Mis", "Message" and "Sandy" are soaked in the distinctive personality of Alex G, displaying a serious knack for melodic songwriting underneath unconventional guitar lines and scrawls of fuzz. These early records only reaffirm that Alex G is one of the most distinctive American musicians today.
