Smoke Notes

Either under his own name, as Bonnie 'Prince' Billy, or under a raft of various Palace aliases, Will Oldham has for the last decade or so, become one of the most distinctive and consistent songwriters in the contemporary American "indie" scene, delivering delightfully bent songs packed with poetic imagery, and influenced equally by the US hardcore DIY ethics and the more traditional Americana scene. His previous effort 'Sings Greatest Palace Music' saw him revisiting his Palace catalogue with the assistance of David Berman, Andrew Bird and the cream of Nashville's session musicians. This time around Oldham has teamed up with former Zwan (Billy Corgan's short lived super group) member Matt Sweeney (Oldham providing the lyrics, Sweeney providing the music, both playing) in this rather more immediate and stripped back affair (also including drummer Pete Townsend and occasional guest vocalist Sue Schofield). The result of this collaboration is a brooding and minimal, yet often richly textured and atmospheric work, with Oldham's fragile haunting voice, skeletal songwriting and evocative lyrical storytelling, backed sympathetically by a sound that is equal parts folk, equal parts rock, equal parts ancient, and equal parts contemporary. Fans will love this work, while any unsuspecting newcomers will be pleasantly surprised and quickly become Oldham converts. Recommended
