I first heard Alex on the BBC web site when they were reviewing new talent for 2011. I found her quirky style and cutesy squeaky voice immediately appealing and sought out her myspace page for more. From there I discovered the freely available Basement Covers EP download was also another source of delight. This 6-track CD provides a good introduction to Alex's music and style. Outstanding ones are Locomotive, Sister Wife and Choice Notes (the latter currently appearing on a TK-Maxx advert in the UK). Less rock-oriented than her debut EP, By The Roots, this collection shows an interesting, upward progression and I am definitely looking forward to a full album from Alex.
