Lesser Gonzalez Alvarez "Mostly A Friend"
A new signee to Carpark Records, Lesser Gonzalez Alvarez boasts not only a catchy name, but also the ability to dabble in multiple genres adeptly. The Baltimore resident has done electro-pop with his now-defunct Cache Cache outfit, played in a folks music band, and makes electronic music on the side with his project The Ruby Stallion Ensemble. For his debut album under his given name, Gonzalez turns to acoustic guitars and simple melodies with Why is Bear Billowing?, set for release in mid-August. All that plus he's a member of Baltimore's esteemed Wham City collective with Dan Deacon. We imagine his iCal is pretty booked up at this point.
