Yeah, we're huge suckers for her it's true. Alela Diane's most recent release To Be Still (Rough Trade) will be in my (Matt's) top albums of the year for sure. Above is a new video (with her Dad) from the DUMBO West Sessions for the haunting album closer "Lady Divine." We're bummed we're going to miss her show in New York with the equally fantastic Sharon Van Etten August 14th at Union Hall, but hey, the beach is the beach. (We're going on vacation. Yes, bloggers do like the sun sometimes.)
Alela is releasing a new EP with her bandmate and fabulous vocalist Alina Hardin on October 6th via Rough Trade. To Be Still is out now.
