Story behind the James Alex Podcast:

On “We Are Nothing” from Beach Slang’s 2014 Cheap Thrills On A Dead End Street EP, vocalist/guitarist James Alex sings, “I’m not dumb/I’m figuring out my life/Let it come/The failures are worth the fight.” This heart-on-sleeve confession comes from a songwriter who knows very intimately what he’s talking about. And he’s has dropped his guard to share it. At 40-ish years old, and formerly the frontman of Weston, a Pennsylvanian pop-punk band that enjoyed some success in the ’90s, Alex has been around the block.

Teaming with friends bassist Ed McNulty of NONA and JP Flexner from Ex-Friends for the endeavor, the super group have already managed to delight critics with their guitar centric rock, which nods to Jawbreaker, The Replacements, and host of other middle-American rock bands that found joy banging on guitars in bars that smelled faintly of stale beer. They’ve also captured the attention Polyvinyl Records who will release the band’s full-length The Things We Do To Find People Who Feel Like Us. The record is the culmination of their collective career and picks up where their two critically acclaimed 7-inches, left off. The Things We Do To Find People Who Feel Like Us will be out October 30 on Polyvinyl Records.
