Joya

  • Music

Since Will Oldham records with little overdubbing, his albums (previously released under variations on the name Palace Brothers) catch his voice cracking in unusual places and his bands improvising without a net. On Joya, the master of paradox coaxes his group into a spirited groove before settling it down with his slow vocals. The songs work like dreams: hypnotic and sublimely bizarre. B+
