I found Alessi last year through her blog where I found some great new bands and only actually found out she was a musician a while after this, i’m awfully perceptive. I’ve been wanting to post about her for a while and now all my festivals that I know of are out the way I can get down to business of making sure everyone is aware of the greatest underground talent around, of which Alessi Laurent-Marke is one.
She has the most unique voice as well, the vocalisation suggests nothing of her Hammersmith roots. Her debut album was produced by Mike Mogis of Bright Eyes and is magnificent, I don’t hear a track that is anything less than glorious. She’s playing with O emperor (who are also brilliant) on the first of September at the Lexington, it’ll be a bad move to miss it. Go check out her wares at the website and go ahead and love her music.
