Information: New Jersey-born Alex Bleeker is an old soul. For his sophomore album, How Far Away, he lets that come into play fully. Over eleven tracks, he deals with the autumnal phase of lost love, the point after the grieving subsides and you start figuring out what youre supposed to do next. As with his last album, Bleeker cobbles together a ragtag collection of freaks, including Mountain Mans Amelia Meath, who provides gorgeously weighty backing vocals on four tracks, Wood Jarvis Tanviere, Real Estates Jackson Pollis, Big Troubles Sam Franklin, among plenty other like-minded musicians who lend sparkling instrumental flourishes and a full-bodied backbone to Bleekers pained yowl. Album opener Dont Look Down feels like a mission statement for the rest of the record. Over upbeat guitar jangle and smooth organ runs, Bleekers voice cracks and lilts: Dont look back on the way we met / Dont look back at me now / Dont retract all the things youve said / Dont back out on me. In the hands of plenty other songwriters, this would come off as self-pitying, but Bleeker just seems wise. The key to How Far Away isn#t just Bleekers lyrics, which [are] both universal and intensely specific, but also the relaxed dynamics of the players. Bleeker is a jam band fanatic, and he takes the core ethos of The Grateful Dead let things unfold naturallyand distills it into concise pop songs: tracks like All My Songs and Rhythm Shakers are brief, but they shift from crystalline guitar to weighty bass effortlessly, with Bleeker working as a heartbroken bandleader, keeping things moving organically. Nothing is hurried, but nothing overstays its welcome either. Though How Far Away is packed with singles, the album works best as a narrative about the dissolution of a relationship. You could call it a breakup record, but that wouldn#t quite be giving it enough credit. Instead, its about growing older and figuring out what you need to do to keep moving. Its never overly sad or angry or obsessed with itself, it#s just true.#
