Willis Earl Beal - Monotony

Judging from the blogosphere, everyone is expecting great things from Willis Earl Beal this year. From what we’ve heard so far from his debut album, Acousmatic Sorcery,  he has a penchant for lofi and gut wrenching soul. His music & this video also help to paint a picture of his backstory: train station performances for nobody, impromptu telephonic songs for anyone who dialed the phone number he’d scribble on the art flyers tacked up around town, and, as this video portrays, an uncelebrated and even unnoticed reality.  He kind of reminds me of a pre-Roots Cody Chestnut. I’m excited to see what this guy has to offer in 2012.
