Will Oldham Arise Therefore on LP

1996 Album from Will Oldham aka Bonnie Prince Billy

Arise Therefore (1996) which reunites producer Steve Albini with a drum machine, has as much punch in the face intensity as any Big Black album. Ably demonstrated by song titles alone: "You Have Cum in Your Hair and Your Dick is Hanging Out," "Disorder," and "Give Me Children." The songs are at times almost gnostic in their intensity, the cliche of the backwards (literally) carnality of the hicks in Deliverance is turned into an Old Testament style parable as if the devil was writing his own version of the Bible: "fuck him over there, fuck him with something..." At times Will Oldham sounds as though he's been dispensed to spread worry and self hate across the land, and this recording fulfils the obligation. Very few people have made beauty and disgust combine like this - perhaps no one has done without laying their soul bare. In a body of work where the authorial name, voice and identity are constantly shifting Arise Therefore is Oldham at his most cut off and detached, inhabiting a strange person with a strange voice living in strange times.
