Drag City 2009. DC422
This is a single of covers of occasional Oldham collaborator Susanna Wallumrod’s songs, and while it feels like something of an afterthought, these are captivating songs, delivered as usual with Oldham’s intensity.
The A side is rather sombre, but is a beautifully sung and recorded piece which you’ll love if you’re into BPB. The B side is live and sounds distinctly rough, but if anything the song works better than the A side and is worth the effort with the murky sound.
