Alex Napping’s new album Mise En Place is a lovely example of mid-paced indie-pop with designs on becoming something more. Driven by a steady drumbeat (courtesy Andrew Stevens) and bass-plucked pulse (by Tomás Garcia-Olano), the Austin group’s songs sound tethered to Earth, even as guitarists Adrian Sebastian Haynes and Alex Cohen wander and sparkle in the sonic space above. But the centerpiece of their music is Cohen’s melodies, which float like a feather. On Mise En Place, Alex Napping is more than the sum of its parts. They sound like a restless band ready to explore new horizons. Joining them are two excellent local pop-rock bands from the Good Cheer Records label, Little Star and Surfer Rosie. BEN SALMON
