Australian musician Alex Cameron is a member of the electronic trio Seekae and he also releases grand pop music under his own name. He put out his debut album Jumping The Shark in his home country back in 2013, and it'll get a US release this week (8/19) via Secretly Canadian. He's got a real classic sense of pop songwriting, sometimes heading into Springsteen territory (like on "The Comeback") and at other times into Leiber/Stoller territory (like on "Real Bad Lookin'"). He applies it to a more modern, synthier template though, and there's a darkness here too. Sometimes it recalls a band Springsteen himself loved, Suicide. Check out videos for three songs off the album, below.

Alex was in North America last year for shows with Foxygen, and he's returning this year to open part of the Angel Olsen tour, and then play a few shows with Islands, followed by a few with Thee Oh Sees. The run with Angel Olsen includes the NYC shows on September 17 at Webster Hall and September 18 at Warsaw. Tickets for both of those shows are still available.

Right around the time of those shows, Alex will also play a smaller headlining show in NYC at Baby's All Right on September 23. Tickets for that show are on sale now. All dates are listed below.
