Music by Bergman: Alex Cameron

He moves like his compatriot Nick Cave and the press have called him a cross between Alan Vega and Ariel Pink, but the Australian Alex Cameron dodges all comparisons in order to create a strange and fascinating soundscape that takes a little from each of atmospheric electronic music, dark pop of the eighties and the least conventional crooners. The Sydney artist, accompanied by the saxophonist Roy Molloy, has just release “Jumping The Shark” on Secretly Canadian, a record with out-of-this-world arrangements with which Cameron at times evokes Suicide, Bruce Springsteen and at others Arcade Fire. This next Saturday at Primavera Club.
