Even though its production is nearly antithetical to the bedraggled no-fi of his debut record, Acousmatic Sorcery, the track finds Beal in much the same state of alienated turmoil. A haunting, forceful stomp-clapper, "Too Dry to Cry" lingers in the mind long after the music stops.
Willis Earl Beal will embark on the Church of Nobody tour in Europe this September. He will perform with a full live band, led by bandleader Jahphet Landis (TV On The Radio, Björk, Santigold). A US tour will follow in November.
