Will and Leo, 20 years ago

About Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy – The Best of Folks:
“The Best Of Folks is as much a guide for survival in a world of increasing alienation and digital dependency, as it is a highlight of a long-running career.”

About Naked Shortsellers – Harbour Men
“Occupying an alt.county hinterland made up of pedal steel guitars, shimmering twangs and sweeping aural vistas, this is a track that perfectly encapsulates those long winter nights.”

New split 7″ by Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy and Naked Shortsellers

This is happening! To top off a brilliant year full of beautiful releases, we end 2018 with a bang. An intimate & sad bang though, ha! Our biggest international release so far…

On December 21st, we’ll release a split 7″ by American indie hero Bonnie Prince Billy and new Utrecht supergroup Naked Shortsellers. Two new songs to celebrate the long-term relationship by highly acclaimed musician Will Oldham and Dutch musician (and Oldham’s webmaster) Leo Meijer. It’s beyond perfect.

This is the cover of the sleeve, a painting made by Rik Berkhout. More info this week!
