Album

More than most Bonnie Prince Billy records, this is one of those austere records, filled with lyrical archaisms - fans will think first of Master and Everyone - but Kelly and company prove a capable foil for the monolith of Oldham's rustic songwriting and singing. Will Oldham born January 15, 1970, better known by the stage name Bonnie Prince Billy, is an American singer-songwriter and actor. From 1993 to 1997, he performed and recorded under variations of the Palace name, including Palace Brothers, Palace Songs, and Palace Music. After releasing material under his own name, he adopted the Bonnie Prince Billy name for the majority of his output since 1998. Will Oldham pairs with guitaristCairo Gang chief Emmett Kelly to explore how we tangle ourselves with each other- as friends, parents, children, spouses. Few hearts could. So begins The Wonder Show of the World, the Kentucky sage's first tandem outing with guitaristCairo Gang chief Emmett Kelly. Historically, the former has always displayed wolverine instincts when it comes to selecting creative partners, and this is no exception. In addition to beautiful contributions on both The Letting Go and Lie Down in the Light, Kelly's furnished a sturdy CV exploring folk music's boundaries on his own. As a pair, Kelly and Oldham are a very natural fit. The Wonder Show Of The World by Bonnie Prince Billy & The Cairo Gang, released 23 March 2010 1. Troublesome Houses 2. Teach Me To Bear You 3.

A quiet affair, The Wonder Show of the World is neither the best or the worst of the 14 or so albums Will Oldham's made in the past decade. Less studied than Beware, not as dark as Master and Everyone, and if there's a gentle make-it-up-as-we-go-along feel to the thing, that's probably because that's pretty much how it was made. Non-essential, but not without its moments: not least the Now here's the chorus bit in Go Folks, Go. More about: Cairo Egypt Music Us Folk Rock 60's & 70's . ShowmoreThan3 total value tota. Bonnie Prince Billy and his buddies the Cairo Gang have certainly put together an album that will now be in rotation within my sleepy-time catalog. The only thing is, though, I dont think theyre trying to lull me to sleep I think theyre trying to lull me to death. Let me tell you whats not on the sixteenth album entitled The Wonder Show of the World, by the Americana folk genius Will Oldham. There are no songs that will make you want to jump up and cause chaos. There is no distortion, at least any loud distortion Teach Me to Bear You features a crunchy solo. There are hardly any per. Compared with the rumbustious Beware, The Wonder Show Of The World initially feels rather low-key. Arrangements are spare, spectral even. Mostly, Kelly tracks Oldham with voice and either acoustic or delicate electric guitar. Bass and drums appear intermittently, as do a choir of sorts. The starkness recalls 2005s Superwolf, albeit without the clanging interventions of Matt Sweeney. At times, a sacred air accumulates around the songs, so that Someone Coming Through betrays closer affinities to medieval church music than Oldhams usual country references. Bonnie 'Prince' Billy & The Cairo Gang is a band based around Will Oldham aka Bonnie 'Prince' Billy and Emmett Kelly aka The Cairo Gang.
