From the lush green mountains and coves surrounding Asheville, NC, Alex Krug Combo is a dream-rock band. The six piece combo is engrossed in landscape, atmosphere and melodic ecstasy. Alex’s strange and wonderful voice at times fastens so closely to Gramig’s harmony, while the other-worldly lap steel, gritty watery electric guitar, and upright bass are all held together by Bill Berg’s expansive groove.
“There are contradictions in Alex Krug’s voice: The softness with which she sings belies her power, the prettiness of her vocal is offset by a rawness that appears and disappears to devastating effect. And each song on the Alex Krug Combo’s new EP, Gentle Spotted Giants, is delivered with absolute care, even as its wrung from the singer’s guts.” ~Alli Marshall, Mountain Xpress.
