Smoke Notes

Multi-monikered Will Oldham's latest, out under his Bonnie "Prince" Billy pseudonym, could be considered the first "real" Oldham offering since 2003's Master and Everyone - in between he's created a live album (Summer in the Southeast), as well as a collaborative album (Superwolf with Matt Sweeney) and re-recorded his own back catalogue with a big Nashville band for a best-of (Bonnie Prince Billy Sings Greatest Palace Music).
The Letting Go - warm songs captured in an Icelandic studio - returns to the sparse style of earlier Bonnie Prince recordings, featuring soaring string arrangements and guitars but not too much else, leaving plenty of space for the "Prince" to do what he does best.
Familiar player Jim White (of the Dirty Three - on drums) rejoins the studio band, while new recruit Dawn McCarthy (of Fawn Fables) finds the perfect vocal complements and counterpoints to Oldham's howling, cracking, and crooning. More than just alt-country but defying easy categorization under any other genre, Bonnie "Prince" Billy's music is rich with narrative without being overwritten, musically or otherwise, and The Letting Go could be the richest produce yet. Highly recommended.
