- Wai Notes by Dawn McCarthy & Bonnie 'Prince' Billy
9/10 Phil Staff review, 06 December 2007The dark prince Bonny Billy is back with a new album with Dawn Mccarthy. This is classic Will Oldham gear. Beautiful simplistic songs with a complete back to basics lo fi approach. The tape hiss is refreshingly present and it's about as lofi as you can imagine one of his releases being these days. Stark beautiful spacious songs with Dawn adding some haunting wispyness in the background. This is the kind of Will Oldham gear I love and I can't get enough of it. Music from the soul for the soul. Excellent! 'Wai Notes' is CD only and ltd to 10,000 copies apparently all with handmade photo things on the back! Wait til you see the photo as well... it's the best photo of Billy...seriously... it's the beard to die for!
6/10 Lars Dideriksen Customer review,
I really enjoyed 'The Letting Go'. But this one had me a bit disappointed. Which is odd, because I love the lo-fi sound. What annoys me is that when I listen it seems obvious that Billyboy did these demos on a hissing analogue recorder (which sounds great) and then afterwards Dawn McCarthy added her backing vocals in a reverby hi-fi sound. Even though I enjoy her voice very much I sit there wishing it was only Billy on this one - or she had been there with him when the original tape was rolling.
