Alessi Laurent-Marke’s debut US full-length release Time Travel has been obsessively hailed in the UK. It will be released in the US on September 27th on Bella Union Records. Standout tracks “Wire,” “On the Plains” and her imaginative rendering of Lesley Gore’s “Maybe I Know” stand out on an album of breathy, soulful folk.
“A precious mix of childlike insouciance and adolescent anxiety… the songs have a deftness that defies her years” NME – 8/10
“Reverb-laden memoirs such as Blanket and Stalemate mine a rich source of melodic fuel… The understated arrangements suggest you’re listening to a woman with impeccable taste, while her exquisitely resigned cover of Lesley Gore’s Maybe I Know confirms it” MOJO – 4 Stars ****
“As precocious as Laura Marling, the 12 songs reveal a talent that’s on the verge of becoming something special… Beautiful and beguiling, the album gets under your skin” The Guardian – 4 Stars ****
