Death To The Storm

DOWNLOAD: Death To The Storm

It’s been a couple of years since Madonna’s brother-in-law (yes…that Madonna), Joe Henry, was on The List, but he’s got a new album set to drop next month and for anyone who loves his atmospheric, bluesy/jazzy, warmly narcoleptic tales told in an ever so slightly Tom Waits-y fashion, I think Blood From Stars should make you happy. While he’s probably still better known as a producer of underappreciated R&B veterans like Solomon Burke and Bettye LaVette, or for his work with bigger names like Aimee Mann and Ani DiFranco, Henry’s growling barroom croon and his opulently layered, warm sound instantly draws you into his dark sonic world, populated by lounge lizards, drunks, thieves and whores. Check him out on MySpace or at Joe Henry Loves You Madly
