“Lucy” is a trance-inducing two-minute track from Haverford’s Alex G, released as a single on the young musician’s Bandcamp last month.  Following up last November’s Trick full-length, “Lucy” is a hushed and relaxing song with minimal lyrics ( just “I love Lucy” floating through every now and then) and Alex G’s always on-point guitar melodies.  When he’s not playing solo, Alex is the lead singer in The Skin Cells.  But it’s his early solo work that landed him on a list with The Smiths, Animal Collective and Sunny Day Real Estate – music blog Pigeons and Planes tipped his 2010 track “Gnaw” for its 20 Indie Classics by Artists Under 20 composite this past April.  He’ll return to North Philly’s Church of the Advocate on July 20th for a show with Coma Cinema, Julia Brown, Olive Drab and Girl Scouts; more information can be found on the Facebook event page here.  Download “Lucy” and stream “Gnaw” below.
