Music lovers fond of both delicate violin and heavy guitar don’t need to look any further than the discography of (Sandy) Alex G to find a beautifully eccentric mix of two seemingly opposing genres. Alexander Giannascoli, the former Bandcamp sensation and Pennsylvania native, displays his signature synthesizing of indie rock and folk-laced tracks with new vigor on his latest release, “House of Sugar.” His outstanding ability to create an overwhelming wall of sound as one person leaves listeners yearning for more of his unique musical quality from the next release.

At the same time, he’s also symbolic of the creativity and individuality that the internet age at its best has produced.
