Rubblebucket member Alex Toth describes his new band, Alexander F, as a new age punk band. Born out of a meditation retreat in Quebec in the wake of major life changes and a series of losses, the project’s aggression is tempered by a playfulness and melodicism. “Call Me Pretty,” the third single from their upcoming debut record, plays with the contrast between tense, half-spoken, half-sung verses and huge, synth-supplemented choruses. Alex Toth tapped plenty of his pals to help him realize the record—featuring appearances from Delicate Steve, members of Perfect Pussy, Here We Go Magic and more. Kimbra comes in with the assist on “Call Me Pretty,” elevating the chorus higher into pop bliss with her call-and-response delivery of the song’s titular command.
