After playing in Makeout Videotape with Mac DeMarco, Alex Calder packed away his drums to perfect his songwriting. Moving back to his mother's house, he was able to write and record his first solo efforts in 2013. The Time EP was Calder's first release on Captured Tracks, which he followed up with Strange Dreams - his full-length debut - in 2015. It brought the focus and ambition of Alex's songwriting to all aspects of his music, delivering an incredibly personal and intimate album that feels mature while maintaining the youthful humor that has become his trademark.
Now, Calder returns with Bend, a cassette release of home recordings. The 15 tracks on the release were recorded between 2013 - 2015, when Calder was in the midst of gaining momentum as a solo artist and are available now to tide you over before his next release!
