‘I Believe In You,’ Black Dub

So. This video of a group called Black DubTrixie Whitley, Brian Blade, Daryl Johnson and Daniel Lanois–recording the song “I Believe In You” is simple. Just a black and white recording of a…recording. For the first thirty seconds or so the affectations of singer Trixie Whitley were a bit distracting. But there’s no doubt she can sing and the performance becomes riveting quickly thereafter. This song is really fantastic, especially in its final third when Whitley works herself into a vocal frenzy, wailing, periodically pulling it back on a dime into a near whisper. Admittedly, this will not be for everybody. Aside from impeccably smooth instrumentation from the rest of the band, the style is gruff and guttural. And passionate. And will have you looking forward to the release, whenever that happens. [H/T: YYY]
