Luke Winslow-King - "Leghorn Women"

Photo by Victor Alonso
Luke Winslow-King's great 2016 release, I'm Glad Trouble Don't Come Always, was a dark slice of Americana. He had recently gone through a divorce, and while it was uplifting in its own way, the album was filled with heartache. 

His new single, "Leghorn Women," is a blues-meets-indie rock barn burner. The vibe feels completely different. I'm sure it doesn't help that the new album was recorded in the Tuscan village of Lari, Italy. While most indie rock meets blues songs have a dirty feel, "Leghorn Women" is clean and smooth. Normally I'd see that as a negative, but with Winslow-King, it just feels right. It's polished, but nowhere near overproduced. It's just a lightning fast blues epic with some of the best guitar work you've heard in years.
