Alice Russell - "Twin Peaks" [Live BBC Session] + Tourdates

Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Lion Babe, Thundercat, SZA & More Rock The Afropunk Festival 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.

Alice Russell performs "Twin Peaks" live in session for Craig Charles on the opening night of BBC 6 Music's 6 Music Live on February 9th. Russell is backed by her dynamic band with a stirring arrangement of electric piano, classic doo-wop chords and surf guitar nestled inside a swaying back beat for the track from her latest LP To Dust. As usual Alice Russell brings her a-game with a performance that would make everyone from the founders of Daptone Records to Motown vets proud. If it hasn't happened yet, it is well past time she sat in a studio with some of them. Opening the new BBC 6 live series her performance only reinforces the abiding fact that every talent privileged to cross the stage at Maida Vale is truly major. Keep an eye out for Alice Russell on the road. She will be embarking on a U.S. tour to support the release of a US-only version of To Dust dropping on April 30th. The release will include a bonus track and exclusive remixes from dance music production team Let Machines Do The Work and producer/musician Typesun. Peep the performance below. Rinse. Repeat.
