New Music From cleen (Aileen Alonzo)

I've blogged about Aileen Alonzo's music before but that was the stuff that was vaguely folk-y. Now Aileen is back with cleen, a project with Claudio Canzonetta. The genre they use to describe their music is acoustic glitch and that's a nice description.

What's here is processed but acoustic, real instruments dueling with sampled bits. The whole reminds me of the first Fiona Apple album, which makes Claudio the Jon Brion to Ms. Alonzo's Ms. Apple, I guess.

For now, follow the band on Soundcloud:
