Rezension

Will Oldham ist bekannt dafür unter einer Vielzahl von Interpretennamen seine Musik darzubieten. Hier ein weiteres, interessantes wie verwirrendes Projekt. Bei diesem Album handelt es sich wohl um ein Splitalbum. Three Queens In Mourning sind Alasdair Roberts (Appendix out / Drag City), Jill O Sullivan (Jill Lorean) und Alex Neilson (Trembling Bells, Alex Rex). Einerseits covern Three Queens In Mourning Bonnie Prince Billy Songs aus seiner Love and Horror Sammlung, oder wie frank Sawatzki im Musikexpress schrieb: "Sie verwandeln Oldhams Lieder aus dem Fried-Chicken-Country Kentucky in so etwas wie schottische Alternativ-Nationalhymnen.". Und Bonnie Prince Billie covert drei Songs der Queens. Als Zugabe dann noch noch ein lustiger Oldham Honky Tonk Song, "Wild Dandelion".

Review

Three Queens in Mourning first gathered in summit to sing celebration of the publication of Will Oldham's book of collected lyrics, Songs of Love and Horror. Alasdair Roberts (Appendix Out), Jill O' Sullivan (Jill Lorean), and Alex Neilson (Trembling Bells, Alex Rex) each arrived provisioned with a small armful of selections nearest and dearest from Bonnie Prince Oldham's far-reaching catalogue. Three Queens in Mourning's takes on these tunes follow naturally from the fit between Will's words and their threedistinctive voices. Alasdair Roberts' sweet, guileless delivery of "Christmas Time in the Mountains" amplifiesthe lacerating quality of the lyric "we need an enemy / I'm saving all my rage for you"; even if at the outset of the song we're told that "time is the enemy," the abiding sentiment-the red-hot word that organizes my memory of the song-is rage. Ali's and Jill's trading of verses on "New Partner" puts a different spin on what had previously registered as an especially mercurial first-person narrative voice, one that swoops between tenderness ("lay back, rest your head on my thighs") and ecstatic self-absorption (breaking it to the ex to whom the song is addressed that "I've got a new partner riding with me"). Add Alex's voice, not only for his madcap "Lost Blues," but as part of the choir on "Ohio River Boat Song" (a song with origins in the traditional "Loch Tay Boat Song"), and these three Scottish accents singing about the muddy Ohio, Smoketown, Oldham County, and Floyds Knobs, I mean, there's not much else this Kentuckian-these are all deeply familiar landmarks-can say. Type through tears. On this back to back records, The Bonnie 'Prince' Billy LP is a collection of three cover versions from Ali, Jill and Alex directory and one original track. Three Queens in Mourning / Bonnie 'Prince' Billy is a collaboration between Will Oldham (Bonnie Prince Billy), Alasdair Roberts (Appendix out / Drag City), Jill O Sullivan (Jill Lorean) and Alex Neilson (Trembling Bells, Alex Rex) Sleeve notes by David Grubbs
