5/1/19 - Reviews in for “King Louis” Music Video on Hot Lunch Music, York Calling, and The Deli
OUR FIRST REVIEWS OF KING LOUIS!!!

4/26/19 - "King Louis (There’s Not Enough Champagne)” Music Video Release
He’s here! Our very first music video about the Sun King himself (or, more accurately, about the anxious mistrust that the people you love actually… love you back? Why would they? If only you could hear what they say about you when you’re gone…) This was such a fun one to work on, and not just because I got to wear a wig that made me look like a Toilet Brush You’d Like to Fuck; a bunch of beloved buds came out to work on this one with me (starting with director Carly Hopkins, my high school darling with the biggest King Louis energy I know.) Everyone you’ll see in that video is a dear friend, and I’m honored they let me prance around having a musical tantrum at them on camera. Take a look for yourselves, and let me know what you think! Love to all of you! Click here to watch.

This’ll be a fun one! Next Tuesday, November 27th, we’ll be answering questions and performing some of the ghosties on Writer’s Unblock- a playful, cerebral radio show on WBAR (Barnard College’s Freeform Radio Station) that aims to make the process of artistic creation more accessible through interviewing various writers. Tune in to WBAR here, Tuesday November 27th at 11pm: http://www.wbar.org/listen/, or listen later on the archive: http://www.wbar.org/shows/F18/Writer%27s%20Unblock./
11/17/18 - Ghosties Review (Our First!) Posted on GabRodLog!
OH BOY! I am honored to share the first review of our work, written by the New York-based performance artist Gabriel Rodriguez. Gabriel is many things (writer, actor, Good Human) but above all, a storyteller in the way of the first storytellers, those around whom our ancestors would’ve gathered like a dazzling and bone-warming fire. While watching them perform, I’ve been overwhelmed and moved by the way in which they seem to open themselves up to become a conduit for a thousand voices- so I am bowled over in the best way at “Alexia and her lovely, eerie voice brings such poetry, such warmth, such vitality to these people and their stories. She lends substance to that which is ghostly. She makes you feel like these long dead beings are alive and sitting right next to you in all their beautiful human aches.”
You can read the full review here. To explore Gabriel’s own work, please check out their website here- and keep an eye out for the return of their post-apocalyptic creation myth, Jack of Cups, in Spring 2019!
