vOne man gospel-circus, catoon-necessary schizo-rap New York hillbilly, aged and innocent provocateur, alexis gideon has emerged with the craziest music currently available, which is only to say it is the most familiar. Listen to him if you like it when a stranger composes movies in song about your secret life. From joy to mourning and back again and none of it harder or easier than it has to be. The most familiar music in America .
alexis gideon has toured nationally with Dan Deacon as well as played shows with Barr , Parts and Labor , Excepter , T hey Shoot Horses , Matt and Kim and many others.
“Eccentrics like Animal Collective and Beck come to mind when spinning Gideon , who loops beats, warps guitars, and creates a carnival of schizophrenic sounds morphing from dreamy folk to dancehall fodder.” -Spin .com artist of the day 12/28/2006
