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

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 […]

Melaena Cadiz is a Kalamazoo, Michigan native currently taking refuge in Brooklyn and its amazingly large alt.country/folk music scene.
