Video: John Forte x Valerie June "Give Me Water"
TOLD YOU. I told you the blues was back. At least twice. Not back like a middle aged British record-collector (no disrespect) worried that you are going to get greasy fingerprints on his rare archival 78 of John Lee Hooker. No, I mean back like John Forte and Valerie June gave us the water and taught us to swim again, single-handedly inventing neo-blues with this one song. Which is the least the universe could do for us, considering robber barons and Hoovervilles also seem to be back. This is one part of the three-part Water Suite, which is coppable on iTunes.
