Willis Earl Beal is a singer with one hell of a backstory – his debut album consists of lo-fi demos recorded while Beal was homeless. As for Beal himself? He explains his crackly, lo-fi sound is simply a result of the situation in which he recorded his songs – expect a glossy pop record in the future.

Beal’s the real deal when it comes to self-trained clawing, and he turns it to his advantage. Nepenenoyka’, the album’s opener and sole instrumental, is eked out on a lap harp and deconstructs musical convention in a way that made an outsider icon of Texan recluse Jandek, who Beal has namechecked as an influence. As you might have figured out by now, Willis Earl Beal isn’t for everyone.
Acousmatic Sorcery is the emotional outpour of a man who struggled through the tedium and wrote songs when he had no logical reason to be hopeful. Logic however didn't stop him from writing and recording and leaving CD’s and flyers quite literally scattered around Albuquerque. Logic also didn't stop him from getting signed.
