I can’t remember where I discovered this album, but probably it was on some social network. I have sometimes blank spaces in my mind about how I end up having albums bookmarked. I am all the time overwhelmed with new music, so it is hard to keep track.
On Spotify, there is this short bio:
“Jordan Alexander (jrdn alexander.) is an alternative producer and multimedia artist from Baltimore, MD.”
“SAMSON features eight audibly explosive tracks. All of which flaunts roaring basslines, haunting melodies, low-end guitar riffs, and distant drums that blanket lyrics questioning and or challenging the reality of everyday emotions.
“A clock sits on the wall, it lost its sense of time; He wonders where he’s gone and how to get back; When all his faith is gone, he swallows all his pride, and listens to the faucet he calls his mind.” [Lyrics from “Faucet”]
Find a comfortable spot in your mind and/or physical world to prepare yourself for a short trip through the joyfully melancholic world of jrdn alexander’s, SAMSON.“
The album is full of energy. It is a mixture of dreamgaze, post-punk, synth-punk, or whatever you prefer to call this genre. It is lo-fi, it is catchy, and it is a good album. It was really fun to listen to the album and enjoy it. Now you can do it too and do not forget to get the cassette.
