Winnipeg’s Jay Alarcio is one of the messiest musicians I’ve ever heard take themselves seriously. It might just be that he’s the worst drummer ever or maybe he’s just ok with things falling apart. Whatever the case, the nonchalance and innocence of Alarcio’s new Strings long player (very long player—18 tracks!) is so endearing and inviting. It is reminiscent of Daniel Johnston or Little Wings. I know people who are into this kind of stuff, myself included, and to them I say Brethren, check out this Jay Alarcio guy. Free download off his bandcamp, yaaall.
