Today's "Best Song Ever"

Matt Sweeny and Bonnie "Prince" Billy "What Are You"

In most cases the Will Oldham renisance I've enjoyed over the first quarter of this year would be well over by now. Not having an iPod has left me to focus on certain albums and artists a bit more than usual. This song from last years Superwolf is a typical Oldham move. Questioning obscure lyrics, hard to pin down but evokative of something strangely familiar. Like most of the songs on Superwolf the song seemed initially impenetrable. I think this is likely because upon initially listening I was looking for the song's Americana inflections when I should have been hearing it's space rock rock pedigree.

Download, Listen, Discuss.
