Alex Siegel – “Headspin”

California-based Alex Siegel impressed mightily with his 2017 tracks “Good Leg” and “Easy“, reminding of Paul Simon and Cat Stevens in an easy-breezy vein of folk with lyrical power and wit. His new track “Headspin” pursues a different – though equally successful – stylistic realm, one with a bouncy piano backbone and late-night synth adornments accompanying a more subdued vocal presence. Atmospheric and melodically caressing, the track really shows its hook-y charm toward the end, when Siegel repeats “round and round” over beautiful, twinkling keys with a timeless appeal. 02:10 onward is bliss.
