Product description

Product description

BONNIE PRINCE BILLY Beware (2009 UK 13-track CD album - Bonnie Prince Billy presents his biggest and most ambitious new album. Bewares reach is longer and stronger more grandiose: Where fiddle and steel contribute their rustic timbre alongside guitars and voices a thickening thud of low tone rolls beneath giving the record a bottom thats fun to watch bounce in new clothes. Joining Billy deep in the mix of Beware the rollcall of top players includes the band [Josh Abrams Jennifer Hutt Emmett Kelly and Michael Zerang] and special guests [Dee Alexander Leroy Bach Jim Becker Robert Cruz DV DeVincentis Jon Langford Greg Leisez Rob Mazurek Nicole Mitchell and Azita Youseffi])

BBC Review

Following hard on the heels of 2008's Lie Down In The Light, Beware is Will Oldham's alter-ego Bonnie 'Prince' Billy's eighth solo album. It is - unsurprisingly - an organic work of great depth and texture. The melody and sense of acute longing that has infused Oldham's work since his earliest days with Palace is very much present and correct. Beware is an intimate album, full of strong emotion and underlying hope.

Oldham has been reported recently as being obsessed by late-period Elvis Presley. The King's spirit seems to drift across Beware. It is found in the depth and hopelessness of songs such as I Won't Ask Again or the drama and flurry of Heart's Arms.

Occasionally, Oldham's work can be somewhat remote; as he is playing a character, you feel sometimes as if you are there to admire his art rather than fully give yourself over to it. Well, Beware has added accessibility and warmth, given that is so frequently gloomy.

The swelling fiddles and female chorus of opener Beware Your Only Friend are complemented by its follow-up You Can't Hurt Me Now, which sounds as if it is an unearthed country standard, complete with gospel flourishes topped off with some Roxy-style sax. For contrast, You Don't Love Me is playful and tongue-in-cheek.

Beware is an ambitious record, with a list of special guests such as ex-Mekon Jon Langford and one time Wilco multi-instrumentalist Leroy Bach supporting Oldham. It is also one of the first highlights of 2009. For those unsure of what genres such as alt.country or Americana entails, this is a marvellous place to start. --Daryl Easlea
