Alex Bleeker & The Freaks – “Don’t Look Down”

Feb 14 2013

Aside from playing bass in indie rock band Real Estate, New Jersey’s Alex Bleeker creates a haunting brand of jangly folk rock in his side project, Alex Bleeker and The Freaks.

The project just unveiled a new song titled, “Don’t Look Down,” prepping us for their new LP to be released this May on Woodsist Records. Like with his last album, Bleeker recruits the help of his “freaks,” including Mountain Man‘s Amelia Meath, Woods‘ Jarvis Tanviere, Real Estate’s Jackson Pollis, and Big Troubles‘ Sam Franklin.

Stream “Don’t Look Down” below:

Alex Bleeker & The Freaks play Glasslands this Sunday with Quilt and Weyes Blood.
