Alex G’s second LP on Domino sees him maintain the homespun charm of formative works like WINNER and DSU while fine-tuning his sound for the indie major-leagues. As expected, Rocket runs the gauntlet of styles and influences in the voracious manner that has made G’s output so consistently interesting. Tracks like opener ‘Poison Root’ and ‘Bobby’ are charming country-pop ditties rendered through a bedroom-pop lens. Indeed the album as a whole has a pleasantly pastoral quality that is hinted at by that darling buck on the sleeve. Elsewhere we get Beastie Boys-style punk-hop (‘Brick’), Lennon-at-the-piano hand-me-downs ala Daniel Johnston (‘Sportstar’) and chirpy, meandering indie-pop (‘Proud’).
