Playlist

Led by singer-songwriter Alexei Wajchman, Blind Willies progress from an acoustic duo to a full multi-instrumental band on their third album, the new Needle, Feather, and a Rope. Their mix includes guitar, cello, horns, and piano, and their eclectic folk-and-blues-based sound has drawn comparisons to Tom Waits, Jack White, Gogol Bordello, Kurt Weill, and Randy Newman. Hear them live tonight on The Hear & Now.
