Texas singer-songwriter Alejandro Rose-Garcia, who performs under the moniker Shakey Graves, is known for twangy, blues-rooted Americana that charms your socks off, the kind fit for dancing barefoot on a back porch in the southern heat. On Can't Wake Up, his fifth album, he gambles with the very formula that brought him fame. Armed with new instruments and a lifetime of dreams, he forgoes his boot-stomping, cheeky folk for a sound that fluctuates between finely-tuned rock and full-band pop. Alejandro Rose-Garcia pulls it off in large part due to his storytelling prowess; these songs would be welcoming, even enthralling, in any style.Last December, Rose-Garcia took to Twitter to hint at the change: 'Next album. New sound. Sell your suspenders.' While the message is apt in that straightforward folk is nowhere to be found on Can't Wake Up, it's best to keep the suspenders on for support given the amount of trekking through new soundscapes. It's a dense listen Rose-Garcia describes life lessons he's learned over the years and filters it through the hecticness and slight apprehension of films like Fantasia, Snow White and The Wizard of Oz but it floats like a dream.
