I’ve been a big fan of Alessi’s Ark since I saw her play last December at the Wilmington Arms. Kind of like Chan Marshall mixed with Martha Wainwright is how I would describe her. Her whole demeanor was very endearing, she was clearly so happy to be playing for us. I was captivated by her performance and highly recommend seeing her play if you get the chance. I love the different sense of perspective you get from seeing other people’s photos and videos. Here is a lovely video I saw on the Indoor Picnic myspace page of Alessi playing The Horse. The studio version features guest vocals from Jake Bellows.
