Song of the Day #70 - Bonnie "Prince" Billy - Black

Bit of a mixup here

I've been listening to I See a Darkness quite a bit recently. It's one of those albums where the songs I find most interesting keep shifting. This is my favorite at the moment... It feels like it has such depth and variety despite it being just his vocals and guitar. The lyrics have this awesome sense of progression such that when he gets back to the "black you are my enemy" hook, it somehow feels dramatically different... Something very mysterious and powerful is happening here. Btw did you realize that the album title, when abbreviated, is ISAD? Important.
