ALELA DIANE – HOME RECORDINGS & B-SIDES FROM THE WILD DIVINE SESSIONS

When I originally wrote about Alela’s new album, Alela Diane & Wild Divine, I lamented the fact that, while being a good album, it was just too produced for my liking. At the time I said that, “I loved the sparse, vacant nature of Diane’s other albums. I loved hearing her sing through that vacancy and, save for the occasional moment, Alela Diane & Wild Divine just doesn’t have that.” Time hasn’t softened that stance, but it has brought this little bonus disc to light. From what I can tell, you can’t get these Home Recordings & B-Sides in America, but they’re definitely worth seeking out as it’s exactly what I was missing in the Alela Diane & Wild Divine album.
