Alex Bleeker and the Freaks

MARK STOCK
9 pm., Thursday August 08 | $8.
Bunk Bar
1028 SE Water Ave.
 
[SUMMERY SLUMBER] Alex Bleeker hails from lo-fi masters Real Estate, the New Jersey band responsible for Days, a tremendous record of mildly psychedelic, toe-dragging surf rock. The bassist’s own band is called the Freaks, consisting of members of Woods, Mountain Man and, yes, Real Estate. His debut, How Far Away, is a heartbreak album of sorts, teeming with the same gentle indie rock and jangle pop his main band in known for, plus a little more in the way of personal, cerebral musings. Bleeker’s sound is upbeat and optimistic without being artificial, a declaration of moving on set to simple, summery melodies and a dash of twang.
