4.5 superbDoublez38 | September 18th 19

House of Sugar is a treat. Even if it transpires a lot in the 90s, the result sounds modern and tilts towards innovation rather than adaptation. Everything is ultra endearing. (Sandy) Alex G has a gift for adding/superimposing sounds or parts of instruments that don't feel like they go together, but ultimately and this is where it's very strong, the mix always ends up finding a meaning, and becoming so charming. His second gift lies in the details and subtleties he adds to his compositions. It's sugar.

Idk this falls off hard for me in the second half but maybe I'm just a fuckin' idiot pleb.

4.0 excellentErwann S. CONTRIBUTOR | September 25th 19

Sometimes it sounds like dungeon synthpop, some other times it sounds like an unknown gem off the 80s or 90s. A very solid record overall reminiscing of Elliott Smith. 4.0

3.5 greatnotkanyewest | September 19th 19

His hypothetical greatest hits album might be the strongest of any artist this decade, but, as I tend to find with his albums, whether I like or love it depends on how much I dig the experiments. Not so much here- save for "cow" and "sugarhouse" I'll probably end up skipping most of Side B when I revisit this in the future. But the highs are so damn high.

Bump

4.5 superbDjang0 | September 19th 19

A true culmination of all of Alex G's music into a cohesive, mature, beautifully catchy, and artful project. More than just an indie endeavor, not quite a fleshed out masterpiece, definitely top 5 of the year.

Bump

4.5 superbnukethewhale | September 9th 19

experimental sounds into a cohesive package that should entice any fan of indie music
