Vinyl LP pressing. 2013 sophomore album from the New Jersey-born singer/songwriter and his band of Freaks. Alex Bleeker is an old soul. For How Far Away, he let's that come into play fully. Over 11 tracks, he deals with the autumnal phase of lost love, the point after the grieving subsides and you start figuring out what you're supposed to do next. As with his last album, Bleeker cobbles together a ragtag collection of 'freaks,' including Mountain Man's Amelia Meath, who provides gorgeously weighty backing vocals on four tracks, Woods' Jarvis Tanviere, Real Estate's Jackson Pollis, Big Troubles' Sam Franklin, among plenty other like-minded musicians who lend sparkling instrumental flourishes and a full-bodied backbone to Bleeker's pained yowl. Don't Look Down, See You on Sunday, Leave on the Light, Home I Love, Time Cloud, Who Are You Seeing?, Rhythm Shakers, All My Songs, Steve's Theme, Step Right Up (Pour Yourself Some Wine), Love Fadeaway
