Definitely for the faint-hearted
Bonnie 'Prince' Billy - Wolfroy Comes To Town

Aficionados of Mr. Oldham will know exactly what to expect from the man and, if that suits you, then here is another barrow full of sorrow for ya! The musical backdrop is barren and hollow, which is somehow fitting for a voice that is melancholia personified. He writes songs of abandoned hope and delivers them like a man who holds onto morosity as the only route to salvation. If all that sounds a tad miserable, then it is! The choice addition of vocal interjections from Angel Olsen adds brief blisters of joy for our Billy to suitably puncture. Definitely for the faint-hearted.
