So much of Alex G's discography feels timeless, there are so many tangents, threads and stylistic shifts of shape it's possible to dive into his catalogue and spend years never getting bored (trust me). An easy starting point is here, on his (ninth?) studio album. A charming record wholefully concerned with morality and a return to the folk / alt-country wave that drew attention to him in the first place many years ago - Hunter

God Save The Animals figures in the ninth album from Philadelphia, PA based Alex Giannascoli's LP’s title, its first song, and multiple of its thirteen tracks thereafter, not as a concrete religious entity but as a sign for a generalized sense of faith (in something, anything) that fortifies Giannascoli, or the characters he voices, amid the songs’ often fraught situations.

Beyond the ambient inspiration of pop, Giannascoli has been drawn in recent years to artists who balance the public and hermetic, the oblique and the intimate, and who present faith more as a shared social language than religious doctrine.

As with his previous records, Giannascoli wrote and demoed these songs by himself, at home; but, for the sake of both new tones and “a routine that was outside of my apartment,” he asked some half-dozen engineers to help him produce the “best” recording quality, whatever that meant. The result is an album more dynamic than ever in its sonic palette.
