    WHAT THE TASTEMAKERS ARE SAYING (or said four years ago) --

    "Jeffrey Alexander has a long, meandering career in the subterranean depths of the New Weird America, where free/freak folk, post-rock, and experimental electronics intersect. From The Iditarod (who quietly released a posthumous odds and ends compilation on Morc last year) to his recent Dire Wolves project and his shepherding of the now defunct Secret Eye label, Alexander has remained a stalwart practitioner on the outer fringes. For his latest project, and the first major release under his given name, Alexander has produced Floating Lights. “Flutter” is the second track-- a standout session of softly undulating synth and echo that never takes off, but happily orbits in zero-G just on the edge of perception." - Ad Hoc

    “That sense of discovery is perfectly logical given Jeffrey Alexander’s recent exploits. Alexander, who has performed in The Iditarod, Dire Wolves, Black Forest/Black Sea, and JOMF, continues the psychedelic/drone/sound collage experimentation he’s perfected with those groups, and thrusts it to the far reaches of the known universe. His compositions inspire awe at the star stuff flitting through my mind right now (if I had a telescope to pair with my imagination, I’d be peering through it for the full effect), the patterns and transmissions penetrating constellations and nebulae in their attempt to communicate with what’s out there.” - Critical Masses

    "Jeffrey explores churning swirls of shruti box drones, chord-organ moods, the noisy spices of a cracklebox and synthesizer, and some light acoustical accents from a marimba and psaltery. Each instrument equally contributes for a truly transformative performance, placing the listener’s mind in the clouds, and their soul in the streams.” - Tiny Mix Tapes

    Originally a download-only release in May 2015, then on tape (July 2015) with an exclusive bonus track. Unavailable since.
