Check Out Alyeska–Playing the Bootleg Theater in LA on 1/16

Jan 8th, 2016 in Music



Now resident in LA, new (to us) band Alyeska was formed by Montana singer-songwriter Alaska Reid. Reliable sources speak highly of the band and their live performances (they play the Bootleg Theater in LA on January 16th).  Based on their most recent song, Medicine River, below we like what we hear.  Between Reid’s compelling Joni Mitchell/Rickie Lee Jones-by-way-of- Laura Marling vocals and the band’s Factory-guitar sounds that smack of Joy Division/New Order, we are all in.  Word is that the song’s producer/engineer, John Agnello (Kurt Vile, Phosphorescent, Hop Along, Alvvays, etc., etc.), will helm the production of Alyeska’s debut album expected in 2016.  All of the above bodes well for Alyeska.  Listen in below.
