Song of the Day

 

Amazing song from an amazing talent. Alela Diane came to my attention around 2007 her second album 2004’s ‘The Pirates Gospel’ ( her first album ‘Forest Parade’ was only made available at early shows and are all out of print and apparently Diane has no intention of a re-release, shame) was getting a european release courtesy of label Names Records. Her blend of folksy rhythms and almost bluegrass timbre’s made me really enjoy her album. She is also very good live, but better in a much more intimate setting. The two times I’ve  seen her were at the lovely Bush Hall round the corner from the more well known Shepherds Bush Empire. I will be seeing her in a more club setting at the Scala in May as she is gearing up to release her new record which is apparently going to be released around the same time.
