Alela Diane feat. Alina Hardin – “Bowling Green” (MP3)

The fingerpicked guitar on “Bowling Green” winds and and ambles behind Alela and Alina’s harmony, the sounds all comfortably settling into each other in their version of the classic folk song. “Wish I was in Bowling Green sitting in a chair / one arm ’round my old guitar, the other one ’round my dear”, she sings, but the matter-of-fact quality of her voice makes her ruminations fond rather than desperate, contented in the thought of a happier place in the world. The Alela and Alina EP came out today.
