"His words are magnificent..."

¡§His words are magnificent. They are clever. He has the rare ability to define ¡¥dichotomy¡¦ in a single line...Goldfarb has his own style. He should be heard.¡¨

"Artist of the Week"

Goldfarb’s voice and guitar playing on his latest release, Magnifying Glass, is reminiscent of Tim Buckley around the time that he recorded Starsailor or Greetings from LA. That is not to say that Goldfarb copied the long dead troubadour, Buckley’s been gone since before he was born. Goldfarb has his own style, he deserves to be heard.
The whole poetry thing is a double edged sword. While people appreciate someone who is clever, not everyone is likely to sit down and read a volume of Carl Sandberg. Even though some rock luminaries may claim Rimbaud as an influence, how many Patti Smith fans do you know who know even two lines of Season Of Hell.

Alex Goldfarb is a Minneapolis-based singer-songwriter. His latest release, Keys For Locks, features Alex on voice, guitar, and harmonica as well as vocalist Annie Enneking, percussionist Marc Anderson, bassist and keyboard player Michael Nelson, and saxophone player Peter Hutter, and was produced by Michael Nelson and Pablo.

This latest collection of songs reflects Goldfarb’s continued exploration of traditional song forms fusing world rhythms with folk-inspired grooves, lush harmonies, and meditative lyrics. Part personal reflection, part social commentary, Keys for Locks finds Goldfarb singing of the quest for joy (“Be Water”), the inevitability of death (“Kosher Deli”), averting eco-disaster (“This Train”), and the experience of inspiration (“Angel’s Jukebox”).

Goldfarb’s debut album, Magnifying Glass, was released on Painted Sun Records in 2000. The album was featured in the cult surfing documentary, Land of Saints (Lee Evans/Lorien Film Productions 2002) and Goldfarb toured throughout the Midwest in support of it.
