Alice Russell-Let Us Be Loving

Last month I had a few words to say about the very excellent band Brownout, and about an email I received from their record company, Six Degrees Records. If you haven't already, I urge you to give Brownout a listen...

Anyway, this week I received another communication from the good folks at Six Degrees, with information, links, and whatnot, about another of their artists, Alice Russell...

Now before I continue, and in light of recent rulings regarding bloggers and disclosure, let me state clearly that I have never received a free iPod from Six Degrees Records. Nor have I ever received free all-expense paid tickets to concerts, free CDs, or even free album downloads. Not even a fucking t-shirt.

So you see, if I say good things about a Six Degrees artist, I must really mean it!

Umm... Oh yeah, Alice Russell. Honestly, I'd never heard of her before this week. Some quick research (being the highly trained blogging professional that I am), reveals she's from the UK and she's a soul/R&B singer with a somewhat retro sound that ranges anywhere from Dusty to Aretha. The few reviews I've read were very favorable.

I, of course, haven't heard a complete album yet (ahem!). Though if the tune in the video below is any indication at all, I suspect I'll be checking the rest of Alice Russell's stuff out pretty soon.

Great voice, great band, great slow-cookin' tune that takes off a bit near the end. Check it out. You won't be disappointed.

Oh yeah, there's a free remix of "Living the Life of a Dreamer" available for download here.

The t-shirt's in the mail, right...?
