We’ve been playing the promo for months at Wears The Trousers HQ but we still haven’t grown even slightly weary of Alessi’s Ark’s sublime debut album Notes From The Treehouse, and almost overlooked the fact that it’s only just been properly released. Satisfying our craving for new songs, Rough Trade Shops are selling the album packaged with an exclusive four-track bonus EP, including three new originals and a somewhat improbable cover of one of her dad’s favourite bands, Lynyrd Skynyrd (order it here). To add to the goodness, must-visit music blog The Golden Owl premiered new track ‘Pinewoods’ earlier this week. Recorded as part of an acoustic session that also includes a lovely version of recent single ‘Over The Hill’ [download here], ‘Pinewoods’ is a short little treasure with a gently lilting melody and emotionally direct lyrics that really shine outside of the studio. Alessi has rarely sounded so laid bare and empathic, and the mournful do-do-doo middle section just kills. MP3 after the jump.
