Alexis Taylor of Hot Chip and Bonnie “Prince” Billy have joined forces on a new double A side 7” Am I Not A Weaker Soldier, which originally featured on Taylor’s solo album Await Barbarians, released earlier this year. Here, the A side features Bonnie Prince Billy’s take on said track, alongside Alexis Taylor’s version of "The Weaker Soldier" on the AA side, a song that originally featured on Bonnie's 1996 album Arise Therefore. Includes a digital download card and a Zongamin remix of "Am I Not a 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.
Bonnie Prince Billy’s effort is organic and lovely with beautiful finger picked guitar and his voice sounding as sweet as ever. On the chorus two other chaps join in for a three man singalong. Gorgeous. Your enjoyment of Alexis Taylor’s track depends on how well you can cope with his voice which in my case is not well at all. He performs the song in similar stripped down style, accompanied only with piano and again on the chorus another man joins in. It has nothing at all on the BPB side but its ok enough. Nice 7”.
