GET THEE OUTSIDER!

posted August 11th, 2022

With the dog days of summer nearly behind us, Bonnie “Prince” Billy  presents a revitalized "Outsider" anthem; a cover version from one of the giants of the punk era. With a Ramones song built for a ‘Prince’ (from the pen of immortal Dee Dee), Bonny reframes the lyric’s psycho-stoicism with stately melody. Produced in 2016 with Mark Nevers, the song features Chris Scruggs (of the Fabulous Superlatives) and homeboys William Tyler, Peter Townsend and D.C. Berman, who pours existential dread from...

WHAT TANGLED WEBS WAND WEAVE (LIVE!)

posted August 2nd, 2022

Business/pleasure: the two sides of their (multiverticed, decagon) coin, flipping in the strobe light of ongoing self- actualization. And yet, while doing both at the same time — making a record while playing live — they’ve now made their best one yet.

How d'ya get Spiders In the Rain? Start by going back to January 2020. Do you remember? Wand do. They’d been touring ... (read more)
