alameda - slow beginnings

this is the lead single from the new LP 'procession' by portland, oregon's alameda. melancholy chamber folk, reminding me a little of another portland musician, elliot smith, in some of his more produced moments.

the feel of this tune mimics its title. it starts slowly and quietly then builds to a whistful refrain with the low buzz of the cello giving it that chambery vibe. lyrically personal, this song sounds like a rainy-day-staring-out-the-window kind of jam, in a good way. you can stream the entire LP here, or look out for it on sale on the false migration records imprint.
