Episode 38: Alex G and Ryley Walker

Season 1 finale!

Before Steve takes off for the rest of 2016, he talks with two great young singer-songwriters.

Alex G has made his name as an indie-pop tunesmith via his Bandcamp releases, but he’s making in-roads toward the mainstream, including a recent cameo on Frank Ocean’s “Endless.”

Ryley Walker is a Chicago guitarist who was raised on punk rock, and then took a left turn into jazzy, enigmatic folk music. His latest LP, “Golden Sings That Have Been Sung,” is one of Steve’s favorites of 2016.
