Teague Alexy plays in the self-proclaimed genre of original, poetic roots rock, and “poetic” should be stretched to include its rap-music connotation. Alexy’s folk-rock with drummer Eric Pollard of Low and Retribution Gospel Choir, multi-instrumentalist Marc Gartman, and whoever else plays with him on a given night, is funky. His rap stuff, which he’s re-focusing on after starting there as a younger man, will sound credible to hip-hop heads and be accessible to roots-rock folks unfamiliar with rhymes that are spoken instead of sung. Alexy released his latest roots-rock record,The Dance, in 2012. Three albums with his rap crew Actionslave are coming out soon.
