Editorial Reviews

2012 release from singer, songwriter and Indie icon Will Oldham AKA Bonnie Prince Billy. There comes a time in a man's life, where he has to take stock, and it's good that if during that time, that he can do so in the company of friends. Bonnie Prince Billy is one such man, found on Now Here's My Plan circling back to six of his old tunes plucked from past releases, such as a reworking of his seminal "I See a Darkness", "Beast for Thee" and "After I Made Love to You" to name a few, all recorded with Steve Albini. You'll like this plan. It's a good plan.

Bonnie `Prince' Billy
Now Here's My Plan EP
Louisville, KY

It has been a restless year for the Louisville, KY native, Will Oldham (AKA: Bonnie `Prince' Billy). After releasing an EP with Mariee Sioux, collaborating with David Byrne for a Robert Smith documentary and completing his own memoir, for which this record--his 26th EP--shall accompany: "Will Oldham on Bonnie 'Prince' Billy," by Alan Licht. Now Here's My Plan is a reworking of Oldham's most memorable and influential songs--produced, expanded and woven into a honky-tonk medley by equally iconic Steve Albini.

Now Here's My Plan courses the vein his album Beware pulses: rambling with distinct Americana roots. Spurring his melancholy originals with the largess of a full band then ratcheting up the tempos produces glorious fresh definition. Most notably, "I See a Darkness," the slowcore figurehead, here fervent with a foot-stomping beat, male/female harmony, electric guitar, Wurlitzer organ and Oldham's staple growl; an essential reworking, achieving a surprising equilibrium of immensity and catchiness.

Oldham deviated from minimalist songwriting years ago (when Cat Power did the same) once his sole bearing, now the instrumentation is roomy and freewheeling, featuring strings, keys, hearty percussion and multiple singers, making this EP a must for any follower of Oldham's legacy. (Drag City Records)

Engineered, recorded and mixed at Electrical Audio by Steve Albini // Mastered by Paul Oldham // Produced by Steve Albini and Will Oldham
