mp3: Bonnie Prince Billy – Strange Form Of Life

mp3: Johnny Cash & Bonnie Prince Billy – I See A Darkness

Bonnie Prince Billy (a.k.a. Will Oldham) is folk royalty in more than just name these days. Need evidence? Johnny Cash chose to cover Bonnie’s classic ‘I See A Darkness’ from the album of the same name, performing a duet with Bonnie himself. So it’s fitting that this evening he gets to perform in the Southbank’s prestigious Royal Festival Hall overlooking the river Thames. Continue reading

mp3:Plump DJs – Beat Myself Up (Don Diablo ReRub)

For someone who recently confessed to not being a big remix fan it’s surprising how many I’m enjoying at the moment. Plump DJ’s last single has been given a reworking by Dutch Super DJ of the moment Don Diablo. The result is big, brash and almost Daft Punk like.

For Fans Of: Daft Punk, Plump DJ’s, Justice.

buy: Beat Myself Up  12″ / Download


mp3: Princeton – Leonard Woolf

Princeton deserves to follow in Vampire Weekend’s footsteps and become the college rock sensation of 2009. This song is perfect. Beautiful, uplifting melodies. Taken from the best debut EP of last year, ‘Bloomsbury’.

For Fans Of: Vampire Weekend, The Kinks, Peter Gabriel.

mp3:Bonnie Prince Billy – The World’s Greatest (R Kelly Cover)

It’s hard to express the amount of respect I have for Bonnie Prince Billy, one of the hardest working, highest achieving performers in Folk. He even records music to relax it would seem. I’ve rediscovered this gem, an R-Kelly cover, taken from his 2007 covers album ‘Ask Forgiveness’. The sweet female voice is that of Meg Baird in case you were wondering.

Horse Feathers, The Luminaire, March 2nd

Posted in Gigs, Music Video, Tickets, Tracks with tags , , , , , on February 3, 2009 by musicmuleblog

What? Horse Feathers

Horse Feathers make beautiful alt. folk along the lines of Bonnie Prince Billy, Great Lake Swimmers and more sparse Sufjan Stevens songs. They’re here from Portland, Oregon for a brief European tour before heading back to woo the punters and industry big wigs alike at South By South West music festival in Texas. The band’s key members are vocalist/guitarist Justin Ringle and brother/sister duo Peter and Heather Broderick. Peter, who has been recording songs solo for sometime now and has been winning a lot of praise himself of late, sought out Justin after hearing some of his recordings in a friend’s basement. Now Justin makes the bones of the songs and Peter arranges the violins, saw, mandolin, banjo and guitars which give them their flesh. See the video for the beautiful ‘Curs In The Weeds’ above.

When? Monday March 2nd

Where? The Luminaire, Kilburn.

How Much? £7.50
