You can't beat free, right?
Alec Gross' Strip the Lanterns is his debut 11-track LP, whose songs detail a somewhere America that is at once familiar, but ultimately troubled. The full album title is Strip the Lanterns: The Night Terrors of Mr. Ron Avery, and the songs of this album are, in fact, the recurring night visions of the album's fictional protagonist, Ron Avery, a Midwestern gas station attendant who is tormented by his mediocrity and haunted by the shadows of what could have been. The carefully constructed characters and storylines of these songs are set to hauntingly beautiful musical soundscapes that move beyond the acoustic guitars and plaintive vocals typical of Americana and Alt. Country, and are augmented by unexpected blasts of raw, Stax-era R&B. All are graced by Gross' soaring tenor.
