Alex Cameron Forced Witness
Bearing witness to the baroque clusterf*ckery of the world is no longer voluntary. We are all forced to watch. Every possible catastrophe vibrates in our pockets, demanding to be witnessed. In his second album, Forced Witness, Alex Cameron’s solution to the difficulties we face is a danceable and dangerous earnestness, a sense of honesty that heals and relieves even as it cleaves us or makes us laugh in self-defense.
“When the Zeit has run out of geist, and Post Modernism is passe,
there will be Alex Cameron. A sharper, more dialed in songwriter
you would be hard pressed to find.”
