Leonard Cohen: The Darkness
Leonard Cohen is 77 years old. His is a singing style he's managed to carry through decades, his voice a bass conversational delivery that requires the least amount of melody to work. Here, Cohen sings "The Darkness," a country-blues song as timeless as any, but better than most, (which, of course, applies to the genre's more recent manufacturing of pop-riddled, disposable, line-dancing shit).
Cohen's new album, Old Ideas, is out today.
