 Check Out: Willis Earl Beal   Take Me Away

Chicago-via-Albuquerque-via-Chicago again singer/songwriter Willis Earl Beal will release his debut LP, Acousmatic Sorcery, on March 20th via Hot Charity/XL Recordings. We’ve already heard “Evening’s Kiss”, and now Pitchfork reveals another cut, entitled “Take Me Away”. This latest number is another gem of minimalist blues, built on the sound of clanging junk and Beal’s raspy, regret-soaked vocals. Stream it below.
