Though many people are now familiar with James Alex’s work in the “play it loud and fast” punk band, Beach Slang, all along Alex has felt the songs he writes could possess more emotion when not buried underneath layers of distortion and reverb.

Enter: Quiet Slang. Making what Alex calls “chamber pop for outsiders,” he first experimented with re-imagining his music with only piano, cell0, and voice for an EP released this past fall. And now, the project’s debut full-length -“Everything Matters But No One Is Listening ” has officially arrived!.

In reflecting on this exciting new project, James Alex says: “If Beach Slang is me fawning over The Replacements, Quiet Slang is me head-over-heels for The Magnetic Fields’ Stephin Merritt.”
