ALEX IZENBERG – ” I’m Not Here “

Posted: January 6, 2023 in MUSIC

Alex Izenberg released 2022’s “I’m Not Here“, which is the third full-length album from Izenberg. A collection of beguiling love songs, tender heartache, despair and confusion, “I’m Not Here” lays Alex bare, heart on his sleeve, and serves as a peek into the mind of one of LA’s most enigmatic songwriters. 

Like his debut, 2016’s homespun “Harlequin”, and its ambitious 2020 follow-up “Caravan Château”, Alex Izenberg’s new album “I’m Not Here” inhabits the shaggy, world-weary mode of artists like Harry Nilsson, John Lennon, Randy Newman, and Lou Reed. 

With the help of producer Greg Hartunian, and swelling string and woodwind arrangements courtesy of Dirty Projectors’ Dave Longstreth, Alex manages a paradoxical and visionary trick: he disappears completely while simultaneously revealing more of himself than ever before. 

Alex Izenberg has released two new covers, Jim Croce’s “Time in a Bottle” and Fleet Foxes’ “I’m Not My Season” digitally. While both originals complement Izenberg’s 1970s style, he completely transforms these songs into his own, adding his classic eccentric twist.
