Bonnie 'Prince' Billy Vinyl, CD & tapes from Norman Records

Bonnie 'Prince' Billy
Wolf of the Cosmos

Bonnie 'Prince' Billy has always been of particular interest to me - not because of his music - but because of his name. Why exactly does he need to claim to the 'Prince' status? Is he actually a prince? Or is he actually an unnecessary ego? Who knows. Either (or neither) way, Wolf of the Cosmos is available on vinyl LP and CD on Domino. ...view item »

Doug Paisley (featuring Bonnie Prince Billy)
Until I Find You

Are you really going to keep letting him look for you? Because, in his own words, Doug Paisley won’t stop Until I Find You. To double his search efforts, he has called upon the support of Bonnie “Prince” Billy. This 7” is limited edition and features Emmett Kelly ...view item »

Bonnie Prince Billy
Quail & Dumplings

Here's Bonnie Prince Billy with his latest single on which he does his Bonnie Prince Billy subtle countrified thing sounding almost exactly as you expect.  The video reveals how devoid of hair Mr Oldham's head has become. He wants to get some sunscreen on that. Or move to a cold climate. Up to him.  ...view item »

Bonnie 'Prince' Billy and Nathan Salburg
Untitled (Beargrass Song + 2EP)

Limited edition 7” from Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy and Nathan Salburg. The first track, ‘Beargrass Song’, features on the soundtrack for Beargrass: The Creek in Our Backyard, a documentary about the history of Beargrass. The other two tracks are duo’s takes on earl...view item »

Bonnie Prince Billy
The Letting Go

“The Letting Go” is one of the most beautiful Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy albums. This lovely stuff just seems to seep from his every pore. Dawn McCarthy, whom he later recorded an album of Every Brothers covers with, sings backing vocals and her voice suits his down to the ground. The vocals at times sound authentically countr...view item »

Bonnie Prince Billy
Mindlessness

Disguised alt-country pioneer Bonnie "Prince" Billy released Singers Grave: A Sea of Tongues last year, a career watermark in terms of its contentedness and ability to steer between solo and full-band personas. Since then, he's also learned that you don't have to be singing a song to...view item »

Bonnie 'Prince' Billy
Best Troubador

Bonnie 'Prince' Billy just does what he likes these days. Gone are the times when a new BPB album would be an 'event' as such and I'm sure he's happy enough involving himself in projects like this which sees him covering songs by the late country legend Merle Haggard. He obviously has immense love for the material, the record is shiningly produc...view item »

Trembling Bells & Bonnie 'Prince' Billy
The Bonnie Bells Of Oxford

After collaborating on The Marble Downs Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy and Trembling Bells went on tour in 2012. The Bonnie Bells Of Oxford is a live album trying to capture the magic of their collaboration including hybrid versions of tracks from each artist, as well as many tracks from the...view item »


Day Of The Dead EP

Remember that 'Day of the Dead' mammoth compilation thingy the National curated? Well 4AD have released a limited edition 12" vinyl of the four song 'Terrapin Station (Suite)' with folks from Grizzly Bear, Bonnie 'Prince' Billy, TV on the Radio, Sonic Yout...view item »

Bonnie Prince Billy
There Is No God

...Really? Well, millions of people across the Bible Belt are gonna be pissed. I thought about that song "What If God Was One Of Us" and thought this would fit into the same category. It's not as annoying as that other song about God. It's a rather upbeat number for Billy and as a song about God it does the business. The flip side sees a muc...view item »

Bitchin Bajas and Bonnie 'Prince' Billy
Epic Jammers and Fortunate Little Ditties

Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy is back, and he’s brought some pals along too. Bitchin Bajas make an experimental din of synthesizers and horns and together they make Epic Jammers and Fortunate Little Ditties a strange and fascinating collaboration. This vinyl LP, CD or cassette is ...view item »

Bonnie Prince Billy
Pond Scum

Pond Scum by Bonnie Prince Billy is a compilation put together from the Peel Session archives. This collection spans an eight year period and includes versions of classics such as Death To Everyone and (I Was Drunk At The) Pulpit. The arrangements are much more sparse than the originals as Bonn...view item »

Bonnie Prince Billy
Arise Therefore

“Arise Therefore” is the last album Will Oldham recorded using the Palace/Palace Music Moniker. It is the follow-up to the brilliant “Viva Last Blues”. He went on to release “Joya” under his own name but since the release of “I See A Darkness” as Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy he has stuck with ...view item »

Tortoise & Bonnie Prince Billy
The Brave & The Bold

Oh God. Although they've once or twice come up with some great records I often think that Tortoise are taking the piss. Same with Bonnie Prince Billy. It always seems as though he's laughing into his sleeve at the gullibility of his loyal fans. Well now they've both got together to take the piss out of the record buying public aga...view item »

Alexis Taylor and Bonnie "Prince" Billy
Am I Not A Weaker Soldier

In an idea possibly dreamed up by some Domino Records intern on a dull Tuesday afternoon, Alexis Taylor and Bonnie Prince Billy (who both have songs with ‘soldier’ in the title) cover each others soldier efforts in this mutual backslapathon. ...view item »

Bonnie Prince Billy
Singer’s Grave A Sea Of Tongues

Compared to last year's sparse, defiantly self-titled record - which starred Bonnie and only Bonnie, for the most part -- 'Singer's Grave: A Sea Of Tongues' finds William Oldham expanding his studio, welcoming a country band who can maximise his soft rock, not supress it. Opener "Night Noises" reminds me of Wilco...view item »

The Marquis De Tren and Bonnie Prince Billy
Get On Jolly

Will Oldham, or Bonnie Prince Billy, gets about like a newly-divorced alcoholic.  On Get on Jolly, his EP with The Marquis De Tren otherwise known as the Dirty Three’s Mick Turner, we once again get his wonderful delicate trembling voice alongside some recognisable base and beautiful guitar and organ....view item »

Dawn McCarthy & Bonnie 'Prince' Billy
What The Brothers Sang

Dawn McCarthy and Bonnie Prince Billy sound quite beautiful singing together. This album is incredibly well executed and there’s clearly a love for the Everly Brothers songs they’ve chosen to cover. “Breakdown” which opens the album starts softly with McCarthy on lead vocal. The song swells into a great chorus with the pa...view item »

Dawn McCarthy & Bonnie 'Prince' Billy
Christmas Eve Can Kill You

Is it Bonnie or Bonny? Or does it change all the time? I don’t know anymore. This week has been a pain in the tits and I’m unable to do things properly now... Anyway these guys paired up back in De...view item »

Bonnie Prince Billy
Wolfroy Goes To Town

B.P.B returns with what is a radical departure of a record. Eschewing his gentle softly softly catchy monkey take on downbeat melancholia for a harsh rocking sound that will please fans of Slayer and Fields Of The Nephilim...only joking, it's good for morale. This is B.P.B's two millionth...view item »

Bonnie Prince Billy
Master and Everyone

Clint here with news of a brilliant album. Bonnie 'Prince' Billy returns with his first album for quite some time and the good news is:- its absolutely exceptional. I have to admit I haven't really liked the last couple of records he's done but this one is right up my alley. What to say? Well its...view item »

Bonnie Prince Billy
Lie Down In The Light

Will Oldham seems to be churning them out these days... I cant't beleive he has another Bonnie Prince Billy album. Seeing as I've mentioned beards a couple of times this week, I think it would be rude not to give the man credit for the face fuzz he's sporting on the back of the cover. I had a beard for a bit but I was getting my grub all caught up ...view item »

Bonnie 'Prince' Billy
Beware

I feel like i'm not getting enough done nowadays as there seems to be a new Will Oldham related release available every time I leave the house. 'Beware' sees our Bonnie Billy hook up with a bunch of super pro-musician types such as Josh Abrams, Jennifer Hutt, Emmett Kelly and Michael Zerang and a bunch of guests to produce one of his slickest relea...view item »

Bonnie 'Prince' Billy
Sings Greatest Palace Music

Bonnie Prince Billy 'sings Greatest Palace Music'. So this is Will Oldham cocking up his back catalogue (before someone else does it,  says Phil). Ok maybe its an ironic statement or a little dig  at his precious following but c'mon people he's taking the piss out of you. If I want a Garth Brooks ...view item »

Bonnie Prince Billy / Matt Sweeney
Superwolf

Now to a man who the young Jason Molina was often compared - Mr Bonnie 'Prince' Billy, whose new album is a collaboration with Matt Sweeney (who?)  - it's typical Prince Billy fare. A bit looser maybe, and as the other bloke does all the music it sounds slightly different  - the 'Prince' is in fine (soft) voice th...view item »

Bonnie Prince Billy
Ease Down The Road

Slammed in between "I See a Darkness" and "Master and Everyone" (both very high on most people's list of BPB albums) comes this, a grower/hit and miss. At its best it can be breathtaking, in a way that only Will Oldham can, simultaneously sparse, dark, romantic, cryptic yet full of longing/menace. The songs "Careless Love" and "After I Made Love...view item »
