Simply gorgeous. I also write briefly about Bonnie “Prince” Billy [aka Will Oldham aka The Palace Brothers] in “Fed You From the Blood of My Nose“.
But mostly, you should just listen to the song twelve times. And then go out and sit in the grass with your lover.
p.s. I also recently fell in love with Billy’s cover of R. Kelly’s “The World’s Greatest”.
