From the NPR music blog Second Stage:
NPR.org, July 18, 2008 – Everyone Is Crying Out to Me, Beware, the second album from Ukrainian-born singer-songwriter Alina Simone, is utterly haunting.

Though the lyrics are in Russian, the emotions are raw and easily felt.”

Alina will play at SPACE Saturday, August 9 with Adam Kurtz (CD release) and Matt Rock. Tickets are on sale now at Brown Paper Tickets.
