alex lahey B-Grade University (LP, £14.25)label: Dead Oceans
Alex Lahey originally released ‘B-Grade University’ on her own label in the summer of 2016, shortly before playing iconic Australian festival Splendour In The Grass. Immediately after its release, ‘B-Grade University’ went onto heavy rotation on Australia’s Triple-J radio. Around the same time, the single ‘You Don’t Think You Like People Like Me’ earned a Best New Track tag on Pitchfork. Lahey closed 2016 as the most played artist on Triple J Unearthed and was voted Best Female Artist at Australia’s Age Music Awards. Her fuzzed-out, catchy-as-hell indie rock is stacked with emotion, weighing the sound of youthful anxiety against cutting, sophisticated wordplay.
