ABOUT THE ALBUM:
The duo returns with their first full album in over two years, featuring nine tracks of the melodic electronic tunes you know and love. Limited to 150 copies, each CDr is packaged in a handmade pouch with sewn-in photo inserts.
hellothisisalex is Mark Prier and Melissa Creasey, two new-school analogue kids originally from smalltown Ontario, but now living in Corner Brook, Newfoundland. Together, they write bizarre electro pop soundscapes infused with whimsy, non-linear narrative, and a love of pop music and experimental audio. In February 2001, they christened themselves 'hellothisisalex,' both a greeting and being (with both male and female reproductive organs, no less).
Their music has been described as "simple, yet effective, and without any pretension" by Electroage, and as "fuzzy analogue tones and jaunty pop beats" by Ben Rayner of the Toronto Star. The music the duo write is primarily electronic, filled with raw analogue synths and otherworldly noises carried by melodic bass lines. Substancezine places their sound "somewhere between Isan and minimalistic Air without the drug problem".
The duo has been featured on EPs, compilations, MP3-only releases, and three albums-'the anachim thorn,' 'the canadian spelling program,' and 'across the river twin.' They performed at MUTEK 2002 in Montréal, Québec alongside Felix Kubin and Nova Huta. They have also re-scored an old National Film Board of Canada film called 'The New North' for the Minus 40 project. As usual, they are working on yet another release called 'the stump act'.
