Overview

This collaborative EP between Will Oldham (Bonnie "Prince" Billy) and experimental acid-folk outfit Phantom Family Halo should please fans of Oldham's earlier, tinnier work, especially that which was done under the Palace moniker. Raw, lo-fi, and unfussy, Mindeater doesn't make a very big initial impression, but there's a grim, rustic eeriness to the whole affair that suggests more than just a shared Kentucky upbringing. Steeped in the kind of vague, messianic Laurel Canyon vibe that permeated some of the creepier Grateful Dead outings, the four tracks -- one of which ("I Wonder If I Care as Much") is a fuzzed out Everly Brothers cover -- sound like someone crept up behind the gang with a tape recorder, waited until the last campfire ember dimmed, and then hit the road, only to be found years later in a ravine with the goods in tow.
