EDITORS’ NOTES

While Duke Garwood isn't a blues singer, he sings the blues. His fifth solo album, Heavy Love, is a dark journey through the endless night, self-produced in London and Los Angeles with collaborators Mark Lanegan and Queens of the Stone Age’s Alain Johannes mixing the results. The often sparse, eerie tracks—“Disco Lights,” “Sweet Wine”—create unsettling feelings that would seem natural accompanying a David Lynch film. A harmonica chokes out its notes on “Snake Man,” a track that had been slowly progressing with a drum loop, a warm bass element, and Garwood’s haunted baritone. Heavy Love is brilliant work, start to finish.
