HEADLESS HEROES / The Silence of Love (2008)

An album of covers that, I'm ashamed to say, I picked up because I fell in love with the art. I know… but it turned out to be half-interesting. It features songs by The Jesus & Mary Chain, Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds, I Am Kloot, and several others.
It has a delicate, dreamy, non-threatening, mid-sixties folksy sound that reminds me of Nancy Sinatra at times. Vocalist Alela Diane has the potential to shine if she finds the right collection of songs and backing musicians.

Songs of Note: True Love Will Find You in the End; Blues Run the Game
