Alden Penner

Towards the end of last year, we mentioned that former Unicorns and Clues member Alden Penner would be releasing his first solo album following a few singles and EPs. That album is titled Exegesis and it comes out today (2/4), but you can hear it before you buy it, a stream of the whole thing makes its premiere in this post.

As someone who was one of the pioneers of 2000s-style indie rock, most notably on The Unicorns' final album, Who Will Cut Our Hair When We're Gone?, and delivered more promising material in that vein (though less quirky) on the only Clues album, Alden keeps that up on the new solo record. It features all four songs from 2013's Procession EP, which we said "floats somewhere between airy folk and grandiose baroque rock," and the whole record pretty much lives up to what that EP promised.

Check it out, along with Alden's upcoming dates (none in NYC), below...

unicorns do exist. People can't see them because they are really shy animals and you can only see them if you really believe and want to see one. :)

Alden, if you EVER come across this, I want to tell you that you're the best musician of the new millennium. Thank you for breathing and a special thanks for making all of your music. Ok thanks.
