Smoke Notes

This fine album sees Will Oldhams Bonnie Prince Billy alter ego tackles the songs of his more established group the Palace Brothers. The result is blissfully somber and recorded with an elegant live sound, bringing a murky realism to his own mysterious and quirky folk music. What may seem on paper a futile exercise is in fact an even stronger example of the oddball Oldhams approach to country and bluegrass, and showcases his often-brilliant songwriting over several Palace albums in a new light. Gulf Shores sits comfortably next to anything in "Alt-Country", yet doesnt suffer from over production and oozes authenticity. You Will Miss Me When I Burn is as heartbreakingly beautiful as its title suggests, Oldhams broken voice and delivery perfectly suitable while Mike Johnsons pedal steel creates a moody Mid-Western landscape. Horse recalls the soulful country-rock of Gram Parsons, before the melancholic Riding and a swing version of Palace favorite I Am A Cinematographer justify the albums initial appeal, confirming that the often hit and miss Oldham has come good this time round. Far more approachable than many of this gifted but often-misunderstood performers previous records, it still manages to inject country music with an urgency lacking from many artists on the market. Fans will be pleased with the consistency, newcomers will be thrilled with their new discovery. Recommended.
