Pitchfork verdict: “16 years after Oldham’s tender singing and Sweeney’s cable-knit guitars made the original an underground classic, they return with Superwolves, an album that is, just as its title suggests, both a continuation of ‘Superwolf’ and something more. On the album, the duo let us in on a decades-long conversation, their respective instruments virtually finishing one another’s thoughts. Their bond is so deep, and their knowledge of one another is so profound, it’s essentially impossible to hear the boundary between them.” Full review here. Score: 8/10.

Turn Up The Volume: These two eternal troubadours do not have the masses of fans and mainstream success as master crooner Nick Cave, but they sure are in the same league of remarkable singers/songwriters. A duo made in purgatory making heavenly music for the afterlife. This record will last for a long time, a very long time.

Highlights: Good To My Girls / Hall Of Death / There Must Be A Someone /
My Blue Suit / My Body Is My Own

– HALL OF DEATH –

– MY BLUE SUIT –

Crooners MATT SWEENEY And BONNIE ‘PRINCE’ BILLY Charm With ‘MY BLUE SUIT’

New sonic impulses…

25 March 201

American singer/songwriters Matt Sweeney and Bonnie “Prince” Billy
(who seems to sleep with his guitar lately. He’s everywhere) joined forces
in 2005 for a longplayer called Superwolf.

They got together again to can another LP, titled,
eh… Superwolves. Out 30 April. More info here.

One of the 14 tracks is MY BLUE SUIT. A characteristic
troubadour ballad. Smooth, mellow, and romantic.

Enjoy

MATT SNEEWEY & BONNIE “PRINCE” BILLY Share New Spellbinding Track ‘MAKE WORRY FOR ME’

23 November 2020

Back in 2005 lone wolves Bonnie “Prince” Billy and Matt Sweeney teamed
up for a collaborative album called Superwolf.

After all these years the pair returned last March with new music, a raw ripsnorter
called You’ll Get Eaten, Too (listen below) and also announced that a new Superwolf album was “fully rendered, awesome and now awaiting the new world order to be sorted.”

So far no further news, except for a brand new piece, titled MAKE WORRY FOR ME.
A puzzling humdinger with a spellbinding outcome. Stirring stuff.

Transfixing performance…
