Track Of The Day #326: Alela Diane – About Farewell


As we wave goodbye to July here’s our beautiful soundtrack entitled ‘About Farewell’ comes from Portland’s Alela Diane a mellifluous country tinged sigh to parting that’s poetic shafts of honesty(“I heard somebody say that ‘the brightest lights cast the biggest shadows,’ so honey, I’ve got to let you go, I’ve got to let you go”) flood across this brittle americana tinged landscape. It’s lifted from her recently released new album of the same name, that;’s lyrics deal most directly with her recent divorce, the her entire long player ruminates intricately and vividly upon last decade of relationships with cathartic strength and timeless musicianship.
