Default I'm going to see Bonnie "Prince" Billy in April...

what the hell should I really immerse myself in? I've always enjoyed his stuff, but haven't gotten into his catalog with any depth.

Whatdyarecommend?

the first rule is that most things palace are better than most things bpb

get lost blues and other songs (singles comp by palace music), then viva last blues, then there is no-one what will take care of you

then maybe joya

i see a darkness anyway, i'm sure you have that already. other bpb albums are only good for one or two songs each

well, if you want to know what to expect live, you might want to check out "is it the sea", or "summer in the southeast".

Lost Blues is great! Thanks for the recommendation. I don't think I would've really checked Palace Music out.

i saw him last year, he played all (then) new songs from Lie Down in the Light, and then i see a darkness. i was kinda disappointed, but a good experience all in all.

I wasn't sure, since there are tons of "Oh Lord"s and "God"s in his lyrics.

I'd say yo also give Viva Last Blues, I see a Darkness, The Letting Go, and BPB Sings Greatest Palace Music a listen to get a very good idea of his catalog.

More Brother Rides / Horses / I am a cinematographer, etc.

Great versions, maybe even superior to their Palace counterparts.

Seriously, the second version/video of horses is so fucking great. It basically has all oldham elements i love so much. The ramshackle chords, the lyrics, his voice breaking and cracking. Beautiful song.

this is why i often feel ashamed to say i like will oldham. i like him for entirely different reasons than most people. i think stable will is probably his defining work (both versions)
