[music] Alela Diana - Dry Grass & Shadows

"Alela Diane hails from Nevada City, a forest-enclosed town in Northern California where indie favorite and harpist Joanna Newsom also calls home. Indeed, it was Newsom who gave Diane some encouragement to perform early on. This track from Diane's sophomore album To Be Still lies more within the folk idiom than Newsom's surreal, complex poetry, but they both inhabit that slightly off-kilter world of fable-like storytelling. Her and her guitar take the spotlight, aided by some haunted female backing vocals and a light folk backing band. There is a rough and rural sincerity to this ghostly tune that gives the track some extra emotional weight." -- iTunes Store
