Alessi's Ark #4 - The Rain

Facebook / alessisark.com

A welcome back to Alessi's Ark whose been a little quiet the past twelve months or so, her return is really quite lovely though, "The Rain" is the first taster of her forthcoming third album The Still Life released via Bella Union on April 15th and sees a deviation from the understated acoustic singer/songwriter style of Alessi's earlier work.

Of course it wouldn't be Alessi without minimalistic arrangements or her naturally sweet vocals but "The Rain" is a marked development from 2011's Time Travel, here experimenting with a larger spectrum of sounds with electronic beats and abrasive samples shimmering around her intimate guitar plucks, the result creates an ancient ambience just as beautiful and charming as you'd expect from Alessi's Ark.
