I forgot how much I love Will Oldham. I was sitting listening to Last.fm's "Lambchop" station (another of my favorite musics) and this song came on. It totally stopped me in my tracks, which is often the case with old Bonnie Prince Billy/Palace Music/all Oldham incarnations. His songs are like hymns. A beautiful, haunting song about the creeping spectre of depression, and a great song all around.

And now, the lighter side of Will Oldham. Proof that you can write the saddest song in the world, but also be a goofball dorkus.
