Alex Cameron’s newest and most musically expansive album, the glistening Miami Memory, takes a surprising turn. Cameron’s flair for narrative and character is still on full display; yet Miami Memory’s most frequent narrator is, for the first time, Cameron himself - singing with stunning candour of his three-year relationship with his girlfriend. “When you listen to these songs, and you’re waiting for the twist, or the joke, or any kind of discomfort, I can assure you none of those things were there when I wrote them,” says Cameron. “These are true stories, of actual events. Specific but never esoteric.  And graphic but never offensive. Miami Memory is the story of a couple balancing sex with contemporary family values... It’s my gift to my girlfriend, a symbol to hoist on the totem of love.”  Though remnants of his synth-driven earlier work sneak in to unsettle the tone, the bulk of Miami Memory revels in the emotional overdrive of classic dad rock, its warm, anthemic songs driven by bass, guitar, sax and layers of Vegas wedding chapel-ish organ.
