James Alex of Philadelphia’s punk project Beach Slang shared the new Quiet Slang single “Noisy Heaven”. With Quiet Slang Alex is embracing minimalism, smothering the fuzz in favor of a cello, a piano, and his voice. The debut full length album, Everything Matters But No One Is Listening, will be released May 18 on Polyvinyl.
Alex linked up with longtime co-producer Dave Downham for Everything Matters But No One Is Listening, who worked with him in bringing on cellist Dan Delaney and pianist Keith Giosa. Rounding out the crew were Stacey Downham, Matt Weber, Charlie Lowe and New Jersey quartet The Warhawks, who lent their voices to evoke what Alex describes as a “back alley choir.”
