Recorded at Maxwell’s, Hoboken, NJ by Jonas Blank for nyctaper.com Just in case you don’t know…Will Oldham, better known by the stage name Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy, is an American singer-songwriter and actor. Oldham is known for his “do-it-yourself punk aesthetic and blunt honesty,” and his music has been likened to Americana, folk, roots, country, punk, and indie rock. He has been called an “Appalachian post-punk solipsist”, with a voice that has been described as “a fragile sort-of warble frittering around haunted melodies in the American folk or country tradition.”
Darkcho is an album of mystical Hasidic music, that sounds more like an indie folk rock album with tradition than what you would expect of a religious album. The music is very real, very meditative and very very human. (Download the Darkcho record here).
