Lo! Finger-piano! Rippling fields of snare! Flights of banjo and mandolin! Choruses the size of Ponderosas! The hundred sounds of a woman possessed by song! King Con is the relatively long-awaited (at this desk, anyway) full-length debut from Detroit-bred multi-instrumentalist and pop enchantress Alex Winston. It's a wellspring of implacable melody and seismic quirk due to drop April 10 via V2/Cooperative. Hear it in its entirety exclusively here:
