Melbourne-based alternative songstress, Alex Lahey, ditches basic friends for what appears to be a…wood board. And she has the most fucking amazing time of her life. Humans are just too complicated to befriend – you have to kind of keep up with their social media, be their venting toilette, and passive aggressively “suggest” things. But with a wood board, life is so much easier and brighter just like “Wes Anderson.” The strings-shimmering buzz and Lahey’s tingling vocals get grounded into your system with a license to chill:

“Wes Anderson” is from Alex Lahey’s debut EP, B-Grade University, which is out now under her new label, Dead Oceans (other roster of artists include Slowdive and Dub Thompson). She has tour dates coming up:
