“The Mindeater” f. Phantom Family Halo (Streaming)

    Will Oldham has a new EP set for release under his Bonnie “Prince” Billy guise, this time in collaboration with Phantom Family Halo. That release is being heralded by this clip of “The Mindeater,” which represents a return to the spooked-out country of Oldham’s earlier career. As TwentyFourBit points out, this wouldn’t sound out of place in his Palace Brothers oeuvre, with its downcast slide guitar motif and a cracked vocal delivery that’s mired in murky lo-fi production values. This is a welcome and long overdue return to that kind of territory, and bodes well for anything that may follow this release. The track ends with some beautiful solo organ playing, which gives it a neat creepy B-movie horror feel to close out the proceedings.
