Matt Sweeney & Bonnie Prince Billy | Superwolves
Includes download code
‘Superwolves’ is the return of the legendary partnership that is Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy and Matt Sweeney, lauded for their 2005 instant classic ‘Superwolf’.
The songs that make up ‘Superwolves’ go boldly into undreamed-of places and go deep, as Matt and Bonny take all the musics they know to make songs that penetrate. In classic Garcia-Hunter style, Sweeney and the ‘Prince’ first work separately, finding a path to each other in their solitary imaginings.
On this album, Matt Sweeney sings harmonies along with and around his favourite singer and plays all electric acoustic and bass guitars, joined in places by David Ferguson on stand-up bass, Mike Coltun on electric bass, Mdou Moctar on electric lead, Ahmoudou Madassane on rhythm guitar, Souleyman Ibrahim, Ryan Sawyer and Peter Townsend on drums and Mike Rojas on keys. The Bonnie ‘Prince’ sings. Does he ever.
