Alessi's Ark plays her Sonic Dreams at the Bootleg (with Sam Amidon and Miranda Lee Richards)
When you listen to "Tin Smithing" by Alessi's Ark, London based Alessi Laurent-Marke (and supporting players), you easily get lost in her vocal performance that can be somberly cool, sweetly edgy and soulfully sultry all at the same time. The spartan production works in her favor. In "The Rain" her evocative vocals are upfront once more wrapped up in bouncy acoustic guitars and trippy sounding synths propelled by an airy percolating drum beat.
She will be playing at The Bootleg in support of her third album, The Still Life, that just came out 4/30 on Bella Union. Sam Amidon and Miranda Lee Richards will also be performing.
