cursed eyes are never closing

on bonnie ‘prince’ billy‘s album *the letting go*, a brand new feeling seems to be not so hidden in-between what it all really means. recorded in iceland with bjork’s collaborator nico muhly, the abstract beauty of intimate lyrics pressed up against melancholy strings of violins tremble to the way will oldham and female guest dawn mccarthy’s voices elusively interact with one another. an amazing level truly departs from billy’s past showcasing a tragically open-ended side from the familiarity and presence of rock n’ roll always known.

she breathed lightly right next to me
and i dreamed of her inside of me

cursed sleep

the seedling

from the letting go [2006]
