Local Rounds: Aleko – “Let You Down”

via Let You Down | Aleko.

Normally, I would write about a full album/EP release from a local artist, but Aleko’s music is too good to pass up mentioning. “Let You Down” is an excellent acoustic folk track, complemented well by some spare electric guitar. The southern Jersey singer-songwriter has a voice immediately comparable to Justin Vernon, one that I’m excited to hear more of. He also sounds similar to local singer-songwriter Evan Stephens Hall (lead singer of Montclair act Pinegrove). He’s due to release an EP this fall, so here’s another local talent to look out for!

Where to Go from Here: Bon Iver – “Blood Bank”, Pinegrove – “Problems”, Big Deal – “With the World at My Feet”
