Album Stream: Black Joe Lewis - <i>Electric Slave</i>

Black Joe Lewis, the Austin-based screaming-soul guitar player that won us over with help from his band The Honeybears on 2009’s Tell ‘Em What Your Name Is, is back with his first album since 2011.

Eight of the tracks on the album, entitled Electric Slave, were recorded at Austin’s own Church House Studios and produced by Stuart Sikes (The White Stripes, Modest Mouse, Cat Power), while the additional three songs were recorded at Elmwood Studios in Dallas and produced by John Congleton (Explosions in the Sky, St. Vincent).

Electric Slave is set for release on Aug. 27 via Vagrant Records, but you can listen to the album in its entirety in the player below.
