Ela Orleans just keeps becoming more nuanced — each newer track grows, changes, and intrigues for reasons different than the one previous to it. She’s a shape-shifting artist, always moving forward into new sounds, concepts, and visions. Ela has a song called “The Season” (and it’s marvelous), which is featured on the split “Statement” LP, which you can pre-order via the wonderful Clan Destine Records before the Aug. 10 release date. The record also contains songs from Slim Twig, US Girls, and Dirty Beaches. Be sure to grab it quickly, because it’s limited to 500 copies. You can stream some of the songs at the label’s soundcloud page here. — David D. Robbins Jr.
