Perhaps I should start off by saying that I'm not usually into the "singer/songwriter" genre, or at least not tunes that include both falsetto male vocals and charming piano work. However, The Black Bull (real name: Matt Perri) seems to have hit upon something different. His song "The Great Unknown" is a sort-of-lengthy expedition through an auditory winter wonderland -- introductory finger snaps and bass kicks are joined by minimal, tinkly piano, smooth bass, and strong vocals that deliver lyrics about possessiveness and uncertainty perfectly. I can't shake the image of stepping out into the first deep snow of the season, your shoes sinking in slightly while you're "stepping into the great unknown".
For now you can check out two other tracks at his Soundcloud; a full album is expected sometime this winter.
