Bonnie "Prince" Billy - Self-Titled LP
Self-recorded, released, and distributed. Rare.
There‰۪s a lot of self happening on the ninth proper Bonnie "Prince" Billy album, a release that finds Will Oldham largely unaccompanied. The result is one of the most intense, spry, and catchy collections of a distinctive career.
There‰۪s a lot of self happening on the ninth proper Bonnie "Prince" Billy album. Will Oldham played everything himself, recorded it himself, released it himself, and even distributed it himself by hand to record stores. Most significantly, the music on Bonnie "Prince" Billy exudes an individual perspective‰ÛÓnearly every song is written in the first person, and Oldham‰۪s spare acoustic guitar, breathy vocals, and close-up production form a contemplative inner monologue. - Pitchfork
