Beware, Will Oldham: “You Can’t Hurt Me Now”

whiteley4

Will Oldham (Bonnie “Prince” Billy) played a song from his new album yesterday for WNYC’s Soundcheck. A gutting number called “You Can’t Hurt Me Now,” it’s redolent with old country warmth and lonely sorrow.

Beware is out March 17th on Drag City, and as Will says, the title of the album his caveat to you: “I can’t tell you if this is good for you or not.”

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."
—Hunter S. Thompson

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
