Chelsea Wolfe: "The Way We Used To"

Ever wonder what kind of direction Norah Jones might have gone in if she hadn't been warmly embraced by the establishment? Nothing about Chelsea Wolfe's previous album Apokalypsis would have prompted that comparison, but something about the muted sighs and the bluesy percussion on new single "The Way We Used To" makes a cogent argument for more chanteuses to go the demonic torch song route.

Unknown Rooms: A Collection of Acoustic Songs is out October 16 on Sargent House, and should represent a long form change of pace for the so called "death folk" singer (didn't Current 93 already lay dibs on that nomenclature anyway?).
