Willis Earl Beal - Acousmatic Sorcery

Chicago’s Willis Earl Beal is a compelling musician who trades in vintage, early 20th century blues and rock stylings with much respect to the aesthetic, and we’ve recently heard a couple of tracks, “Evening’s Kiss” and “Monotony,” from his debut Acousmatic Sorcery. Now, the entire record is available for streaming at the Chicago Reader, the same publication that broke his amazing story last July. It’s out 4/3 on XL.
