Mix Pick: Bonnie "Prince" Billy

Mix Pick: Bonnie "Prince" Billy



Prodigiously bearded and always befuddling songwriter and actor Will Oldham - Bonnie "Prince" Billy to you - is at the Troc tonight. Kelefa Sanneh's superb profile from The New Yorker back in January is here. And there's another typically bobbing and weaving interview, from the Matewan and Wendy & Lucy thespian and Gothic and ghostly Americana songwriter who's shown up in R. Kelly and Kanye West videos, here.  Back in March Oldham did a guest DJ spot on NPR. Sample his new Beware here, and say hello to "I Am Goodbye" below.
