  1. The softly spooked-out acid folk of The Pirate's Gospel is a captivating debut from Alela Diane, whose enthusiasm and ability for a then-extremely-fresh learner on guitar is quite something.
  2. Her sing-songy tunes are honest and earthy, her diction intense and mannered but never pretentious.
  3. Diane’s strength lies in her assured voice and preternatural affinity for placing the perfect melody in the perfect place.
  4. The Pirate's Gospel is a campfire folk gem perfect for the summer festivals.
  5. 60
    Warning of nightmarish rural invaders in 'The Rifle' and vowing to keep her eyes open on the showstopping sea chantey title track, Diane seems destined for grander endeavors.
