Sublime folk from London newcomer

The rough with the smooth for a Friday…

Because we’ve got far too much great music which we want to share, basically, today’s another Tracks of the Day double, with Joe Gideon & The Shark’s ‘DOL’ THERE – they tour with Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds from November 25 – and something wonderfully sweet from Alessi’s Ark here.

‘The Horse’ is the title track from the London-based singer’s new EP, out December 8 through Virgin on 7” and download. From the proverbial equine’s mouth (i.e., to cut and paste some PR): “Alessi is an 18-year-old singer/ songwriter - think Regina Spektor, Joanna Newsom, Laura Marling - from London who writes the loveliest folk songs imaginable.” Sold are we.

Watch the video here and stream ‘The Horse’ below…
