Above, watch the mini-documentary on Bobby’s process with recording The Bravest Man in the Universe, his first album of original material since 1994. Sit down with Bobby in the studio and hear what’s really good from the man himself. Look out for the album to drop just about a week after the show on June 12!
The once homeless Chicago native Willis Earl Beal taught himself how to make music during an overnight motel job in New Mexico. His debut album, Acousmatic Sorcery, is a result of this period of bare-essentials creativity, which consisted of “a cassette-based karaoke machine and a $20 microphone.” We are so excited to help introduce him to New York City! Definitely do take a looksee at his new video for “Monotony” after the jump.
