Album Review: Alessi's Ark - 'Time Travel'
Wise beyond her years with her beautifully dulcet tones
Her second, now with indie Bella Union, is a precious mix of childlike insouciance and adolescent anxiety. Alessi swings between the likes of ‘Wire’ – which finds her intoning “I feel lonely, my friends don’t seem to know me like I thought they did” before the melancholia is chivvied away in wafting horns and rushing strings – and the lazy, gently wending country of ‘Kind Of Man’ and the endearingly rickety ‘The Robot’, which have a deftness that defies her years.
