Will Oldham: Guarapero / Lost Blues 2

Gavin Martin, Uncut, March 2000

WHERE OTHERS seek the high ground to illuminate themselves and their work, Will Oldham has persistently covered his tracks and found refuge in the shadows, In his various incarnations – as Palace, Palace Music, Palace Brothers and Bonnie "Prince" Billy – Oldham has immersed himself in the murk and ooze of existence, creating a world strewn with tortured relationships and melancholic wanderings.
