This is the brand new LP of a friend of mine, Aleya Jobson. Check her out, she’s REALLY good.
'My first full-on LP effort. Escapist Talk is inspired by many contemporary and classic influences who have done innovative and interesting things in the musical landscape like Little Dragon, Friendly Fires, Melody’s Echo Chamber, Kate Bush, James Blake… to name a few. However the main thread is the many ways in which our lives are propelled by wishful thinking and varying levels of illusion. The songs are an exploration of goals, aims, the concepts that matter and motivate us, and the coping mechanisms, the escapes we use.'
