VINYL FORMAT. The follow-up to Alela Diane's 2006 debut The Pirate's Gospel is both flinty and beautiful. She draws from a tradition that might include Sandy Denny and Karen Dalton. "Accompanied mostly by her acoustic guitar, newcomer Alela Diane sings stark, ghostly folk. She's already flaunting a large, lived-in growl flavored by antediluvian blues and jazz inflections" - Spin. "Echoing wide, her timbre is rich and thick and her range is higher than most acoustic singer-songwriters, bringing each track to peaks and valleys that draw you in" - Venus.
