The one-and-only Australian songwriter Alex Cameron, along with his business partner and saxophonist Roy Malloy, brought his new album Forced Witness to Johnny Brenda’s last night in Philadelphia, PA, for a sold-out show.

Secret Canadian is an interesting label—you never know what you’ll find there. And Alex Cameron’s album is a perfect fit. It’s pure pop, but it’s lyrics are often X-rated. It’s vapid and purely surface, unless you actually listen.

Oh My Rockness

Artist We Like: Alex Cameron Spoiler: he's chill.

This guy quietly released his excellent debut album Jumping the Shark via his website and nobody cared…until a few people did…and then a few more…and a few more…and then a lot more when Secretly Canadian finally got on board with the positive underground vibes and gave the record a “proper” release (“that’s Mr. Album to you!”) three years later.

Concert Pick: Alex Cameron @ Songbyrd Music House (10/2/17)

This new album continues the trajectory first set on Cameron’s first album, Jumping The Shark. That album told the stories of losers and the beaten down, almost each one unaware of their standing, or how far up they need to travel to get to where they think they belong. Forced Witness takes the same template but imbues the characters with a self-awareness that makes each one all the more transfixing.


Alex Cameron "Forced Witness" / Pitchfork album review

The art-sleaze of Alex Cameron’s second album transcends its surface-level smarm to become a biting piece of commentary. Thankfully, the songs are as effortlessly catchy as they are eminently creepy.

It's Nice That talks to Cones about their new video "Back in the Brain"

“‘When I write a song, I am simultaneously visualising it,’ Jonathan tells It’s Nice That. ‘I often see a song as a line moving left to right, but more free.’ This movability is visible in the musician’s latest music video which uses minimal lines to illustrate the journey of a wobbling stoner.”

Mac Demarco/Flaming Lips co-headlining tour named top 15 concerts to see in September

The Oklahoman stalwarts make electronic-tinged psychedelia, while DeMarco pens earnest, slacker-rock jams — but their oddball personalities and charismatic live shows make perfect sense together.

‘Forced Witness:’ Alex Cameron’s bizarre worldview

Mac DeMarco isn’t just along for the ride

Mac DeMarco may no longer need to participate in medical experiments for pocket change, but nine years into his career, the 27-year-old Canadian soft rocker still isn’t taking anything for granted.

Henry Rollins interviews John Dwyer in Esquire

“...I’ve done my best to keep up with the man’s output, but he doesn’t make it easy: his releases just don’t let up. I have a great deal of admiration for not only John’s music but for the intensity with which he pursues it. In that way, he is a true artist, one who’s never taken the easy route.”

Pitchfork gives Oh Sees new album, "Orc" a 7.4

“Throughout the record, he sounds as eager to mess around with his singing as the music: the glorious, steamrolling sludge of “Animated Violence” is the closest Oh Sees have ever gotten to metal, with Dwyer dropping comically Gene Simmons-esque growls in between gleaming Thin Lizzy arpeggios.”

Paste Magazine

Paste Magazine loves Oh Sees new album, "Orc"

“..the record is an absolutely evil stunner from front to back, top to bottom, head to toes and everywhere in between, and whips up the same kind of radiant, strange awe that the band’s overdriven catalog has so generously perpetrated album after wicked album.”

Post Trash

Post Trash reviews Oh Sees new album "Orc"

“...as evinced by the reduction-of-band-name and its terse title, Orc aims to cut the fat off last years’ trial runs and introduce the new Oh Sees thesis as yet another Phlegethon of shrieking Gibsons and yelping Dwyers now aiming to fill observatories rather than dive bars.”

Pitchfork reviews Ty Segall's new EP, "Fried Shallots"

“...if Segall’s self-titled full-length from earlier this year was new material disguised as a sampler of what he’s been up to for the last half-decade, Fried Shallots is old material disguised as a sampler of what he could be up to in the future.”


Mac Demarco talks about his approach to guitar on "Ernie Ball's String Theory"

“... ‘I never thought I would do the music thing. Never wanted to play guitar when I was a kid,” Mac begins. ‘Got a family full of musicians, very unappealing. I was like, screw that, I’m not doing that…And then I picked one up one day while my friends were playing. Turned out I could do it a little bit, it was interesting, right around the same time I got into all the classic rock stuff you get into as a young man. Yeah, got hooked. You start off with the one string thing, it’s like, ‘Aw hell yeah.’ I learned ‘Smoke On The Water’ on just the low E string.’”
