Alex Winston: King Con | CD Review

Alex Winston’s new LP title “King Con” came to her after spending several months in an Elvis costume while promoting the track “Velvet Elvis”.  It was through this experience Winston came to the realization that an Elvis impersonator is the ultimate con.  Winston wears one disguise very well throughout this album as she sings with a quirky innocence about corrupt preachers, regrets, and as she puts it “guts and other stuff”.  Hauntingly beautiful up-tempo melodies are intertwined with grim and somber content that gives this album a complex dynamic.  Winston joyfully sings, “Benny Benny/Takes my Penny/Then he skins me to the bone” as if it were a nursery rhyme hushing you to sleep.  Listen to this album with your headphones on to truly appreciate the production value as well as Winston’s haunting vocal performance.  You haven’t heard anything just like it. Available Tuesday    

Pro: The production of these mesmerizing melodies will keep you coming back for more.

Con: Listener may experience insomnia and/or hallucinations.
