Howling Bells singer Juanita Stein released her debut solo album earlier this year, and deep cut Black Winds recently got the video treatment. Supposedly the track takes its cues from old photographs of the Dust Bowl; these pictures really are bleakness personified.

Bleak, sure, but the track is more sultry than anything with that half-tone shift and broken, Morricone-esque guitars. And, while the video is very well done – certainly playing heavily on the sultry theme – I think the song goes best with those old pictures I linked above. So listen below, scroll through the gallery, and let the dust envelop you.
