Watch Willis Earl Beal Play A Full Show In Berlin

Chicago folk-blues wailer Willis Earl Beal has a voice that seems like it shouldn’t belong to a person alive in this century — a fiery, possessed, devil’s-chasing-me Old Testament groan. Below, we’ve got video of him playing an entire 36-minute set in Berlin, backed only by a reel-to-reel tape player when he’s not singing entirely a cappella. Watch it below.

Beal’s album Acousmatic Sorcery is out 4/3 on XL.
