I See A Darkness

America Canada Will Oldham the artist formerly known as Palace has never been concerned with creating pop music Oldham's forte murder ballads antispirituals deadsea chanteys and lostlove songs has always been difficult forcing the listener to confront some rather unseemly topics Say this about Oldham however despite his quirks cracking vocals shambolic instrumentation baroque language at its best his music is bracing and often very beautiful That said I See a Darkness his second LP since abandoning the Palace moniker is the most accessible gorgeous and moving record of his career Instead of the gothic lowfi country feel of many of his projects Darkness comes off sounding like an early1970s Neil Young album comprised of a stately piano backbone and fleshed out by loosefitting guitar strums Stylistically Oldham mixes things up on Darkness and his full band sounds for once well practiced and well recorded
