Originally from Detroit and now residing in New York, singer/songwriter Alex Winston’s debut effort, King Con was released early last year to critically praise. She’s playing sporadic live dates while working on a new album, which is slated for a 2014 release but with the release of her latest single, “101 Vultures” Winston’s voice and aesthetic has (understandably) been compared to the likes of Kate Bush, PJ Harvey and others — personally, the introspective and very airy song reminds me a little bit of Kate Bush’s “Running Up That Hill,“ thanks in part to Winston’s breathily cooed vocals.
The folks at the Wild Honey Pie invited Winston to take part in their latest, original video series, "On the Mountain,” which consists of a variety of artists being interviewed and performing several songs in and around Stratton Mountain, Vermont – during one of the coldest and snowiest winters in recent memory. It’s also an interactive video series, which offers browsers a unique opportunity to make their own adventure, sort of. This live version of “101 Vultures,” is as intimate as it is straightforward while retaining a sense of the album version’s ethereal beauty.
