Songs Of Love And Horror
Not yet reviewed.
The songs of Will Oldham have been written most often for the aliases of Palace or Bonny.
Their identities, kept necessarily separate from Will's, has allowed them to bring to the stage the reach needed to project to everyone in the room, to everyone outside the room, to whomever chose to make the audience.
The songs were written to create a singular encounter, to be shared among those who choose to listen.
Songs of Love and Horror is a rare entry in this oeuvre: a Will Oldham album, with the writer taking a turn as singer.
As befits the nature of this project, the songs are sung and played by Will alone, in a setting enjoyed by fans of his music-that of one voice and one guitar, the better to savor the spare changes and starkly-cut lyrics, operating in quiet tension and ultimate collaboration.
Will brings to the songs all that he has learned from his stagecrafting fellows over the years, singing new versions that quiver like fresh young things in the air of today.
