Bonnie Prince Billy – Ease Down The Road

Everything that’s great about Will Oldham is here: the fabulous voice, the superb (and strange) storytelling, the sweet shuffle of the music and the confident sexual swagger:

“A fireman her husband was
and so to give him duty
I duly tried to light a fire
upon his rightful booty
but beauty was my treasure then
as through the hills I drove her
and taught her that another man
could have made love to her

Adultery has rarely sounded so romantic. Or appealing.
