    Noisy Heaven [Quiet Slang]
Philadelphia's Beach Slang deliver punky indie rock heavily influenced by the songcraft of Paul Westerberg.
Formed in 2013 with lead vocalist and guitarist James Alex, guitarist Ruben Gallego, bass player Ed McNulty, and drummer J.P. Flexner, the band released two EPs in 2014: Who Would Ever Want Anything So Broken? on Dead Broke Rekerds and Cheap Thrills on a Dead End Street for Tiny Engines. They signed with indie powerhouse Polyvinyl in early 2015, and their cathartic full-length debut, The Things We Do to Find People Who Feel Like Us, arrived that October. After the critical acclaim of the album, Beach Slang wasted no time recording their sophomore LP, A Loud Bash of Teenage Feelings, which saw release in September 2016. When the time came to tour in support of the album, Flexner parted ways with the group, and multiple guest drummers took turns in his place. The following year, Alex released an EP of the band's tracks under the moniker Quiet Slang, called We Were Babies & We Were Dirtbags. In 2018 he released a full-length album under the solo pseudonym, and much like the EP, Everything Matters But No One Is Listening swapped the electric guitars of his band's music for acoustic instrumentation. ~ Marcy Donelson, Rovi
