Bonnie “Prince” Billy
The Letting Go
(Drag City)
This is a departure from the usual Will Oldham sound since it has major harmony contributions and string arrangements. A touch of British folk added with Oldham’s Appalachia revisited create one of his greatest efforts yet. Its genius of dark yet beautiful menace proves why Johnny Cash once called him America’s greatest living songwriter.
