Have you been listening to Lie Down In The Light? I’m calling it my favorite Will Oldham release since the 2005 Superwolf collaboration with Matt Sweeney. Not to discount The Letting Go (which still stands very tall on my Best of 2006 list), but Lie Down conveys sides of Oldham that are both traditionalist and, well, just pure Oldham.
Wilding In The West is an Australian-only live release of Bonnie “Prince” Billy performing with a full band – that was, ironically, recorded here in California. But that is neither here nor there – the contents are great.
Related: The last few years have seen Will Oldham climbing back into his acting boots, most significantly 2007’s Old Joy, and the The Guatemalan Handshake. You can view the trailer HERE….
