Alina Simone: New Album, New Book, New Tour

MP3: Beautiful Machine

I became friends with Alina Simone a few years ago during SXSW and then we released a 7″ album split betwen her and The Black Swans.

Since then, Alina has been keeping busy, preparing a new full length album and her debut book of essays, both of which are officially available today. Make Your Own Danger is available via limited edition LP/CD/MP3 and her book, You Must Go and Win, is available in finer book stores everywhere. Download a chapter for free over here.

Alina is starting to line up tour dates to promote the album, including a free Largehearted Lit reading Wednesday at WORD Brooklyn which also features John Wesley Harding and baked goods provided by my wife, The Brooklyn Baker.

Stream the entire album:
