I say interesting because while some are relatively contemporary (The Jesus & Mary Chain's Just Like Honey and Nick Cave's Nobody's Baby Now) and some are cozily familiar (Jackson C. Frank's Blues Run The Game - best known for the Simon & Garfunkel version), the majority of tracks here are virtual unknowns (any of you familiar with Juicy Lucy or I Am Kloot?). Here's the complete track listing:
1. True Love Will Find You In The End (Daniel Johnston cover)Like I said, a lot of obscure work here that Eddie Bezalel and Hugo Nicolson, the two brains behind the album, probably dug up from their mom's record collection.
2. Just One Time (Juicy Lucy cover)
3. Here Before (Vashti Bunyan cover)
4. Just Like Honey (The Jesus & Mary Chain cover)
5. To You (I Am Kloot cover)
6. Blues Run The Game (Simon & Garfunkel cover)
7. Hey, Who Really Cares? (Linda Perhacs cover)
8. Nobody's Baby Now (Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds cover)
9. The North Wind Blew South (Philamore Lincoln cover)
10. See My Love (The Gentle Soul cover)
While Alele's voice is surely hers here, the instruments behind her are a little different from her solo work. Instead of focusing primarily on acoustic guitar lines, this album mixes things up a bit, varying from her typical folk stylings into more psychedelic and occasionally orchestral veins.
If you're interested in picking up the album, head over to Amie Street, where not only will you get a great price on it ($7 for a digital copy), but also 25% of all sales will benefit Housing Works a New York City community-based not-for-profit organization committed to ending the twin crises of AIDS and homelessness.
