Willis Earl Beal never ceases to confuse and amaze me. Yesterday, the Chicago-born musician released a cut from his forthcoming album Nobody knows., entitled "Too Dry To Cry."
Beal's soulful vocals resonate perfectly over the sparse and thumping blues track, which eventually forced me to re-examine my surroundings and make sure I wasn't walking (in slow motion, of course) through a dusty southern ghost town. Listen to the track above.
You can pre-order Nobody knows. on XL.
