Movie of the Week [Exclusive Melon]
Formed in 2011 as a one-man band, Shakey Graves—a.k.a. the performance moniker of Austin, Texas-born Alejandro Rose-Garcia—has since bloomed into a full band blending together elements from folk, blues, rock, and Americana.
His latest full-length of originals, Movie Of The Week is a sonic leap forward. Whittled down from epic-length studio jam sessions Rose-Garcia recorded with a new-to-him group of musicians, the eclectic album encompasses languid psych-rock, sparse folk, funky lo-fi rock, and even sampled found sounds. Movie of the Week also features the hit single “Ready or Not,” an easygoing, rootsy-bluesy duet with Sierra Ferrell.
