Alex McManus phones it in from Omaha, NE, over an old rotary phone. Lonesome, warm, immediate, and perfectly lo-fi, Alex's music can comfort or it can jump start. For those of you unfamiliar with the Bruces, Alex's pedigree is unimpeachable. I mean, geez, take a look at this resume:

Originated in the heyday of Shrimper, Catsup Plate, Sing, Eunuchs!, and Unread cassettes; sprang from a scene that also birthed the Mountain Goats, Simon Joyner, Franklin Bruno, and Sentridoh; has toured and/or recorded with Lambchop, Simon Joyner, Bright Eyes, Vic Chesnutt, Empire State, the Acorns, Frontier Trust, Azure Ray, Crooked Fingers, Summer Hymns, Charlie Louvin, Cursive, the Olivia Tremor Control, and Mayday; and has engineered recordings by Simon Joyner, Conor Oberst, Ed Gray, Brian Poloncic, Tilly and the Wall, Bill Hoover, Miracles of God, Outlaw con Bandana, and a collaboration between Calexico, Lambchop, and Vic Chesnutt.
