I've always found him so uncomfortable to watch. I saw him live in 2004, from the front row of a little hookah bar in Champaign, IL, and he had this thousand-yard stare and sickly pale look on his face that made me think he could throw up on me at any moment.

This song is great though, really looking forward to a new album of originals from this guy.

That "since 2011" line is a bit confusing, as this came out in 2013: https://www.discogs.com/Bonnie-Prince-B ... se/4891750

just listened to the classical-ish record he did of his songs with the dude from the National. didn't do much for me

Yeah he's always been an odd duck. Loved him in Old Joy though.

You're right, it was only on Palace Records. Don't know if it's fair to call them demos, though, since the songs don't appear elsewhere.

I recall him saying somewhere it’s a bunch of demos he didn’t feel were good enough to record properly and release commercially.

NEW SUPERWOLF SINGLE -- ALL PROCEEDS TO SUPPORT SUPERIORITY BURGER AND DRAG CITY STAFF RELIEF FUNDS!!!

From Superwolf's home in the sea comes a new, long-awaited exclamation. "You'll Get Eaten, Too" is a sunbaked song-comet streaking through our suddenly emptied, wide-open skies. Ostensibly a song about meat and the star-crossed destinies of us all, here in the chain of organic life, the song explores affirmations, impermanence and downfall for anything that can evolve and grow (like bacteria....or a virus), in a taut and purposeful three minutes of rock anthem. Atop burgeoning arpeggiation and soaring string bends, Bonnie Billy and Matt Sweeney get ever higher, voicing conflict, contradiction, acceptance and celebration in a manner that invites all to sing with them.

"You'll Get Eaten, Too" dates from Superwolf's long middle-period between their initial album release (2005) and the planned release of a new album, which is almost fully rendered, awesome and now awaiting the new world order to be sorted. Will music be marked any more non-essential than it already has? Matt and Bonnie certainly hope so. In the meanwhile, "You'll Get Eaten, Too" is a (de)commissioned number from a decade back, recorded at the old Rove studio HQ in Shelbyville by Paul Oldham, and with Peter Townsend on hand to round out the sound. With such a message to send, and such energy, "You'll Get Eaten, Too" has sat it out for too long, waiting to play a role - but the time is now, as a new organic growth spreads unchecked across the nations, truncating life as we know it everywhere. Faced with rallying support on any number of fronts, Bonny and Sweeney are throwing the profit from this single behind NYC's Superiority Burger, as good a vegetarian/and sometimes vegan option as there is - as well as the beleaguered staff of Drag City, currently facing an uncertain future slinging their own patties. Sing for your support, please!

Featuring artwork with a timely new take on the original Superwolf artwork from original artist Spencer Sweeney, "You'll Get Eaten, Too" is available for consumption on Bandcamp exclusively for 3 days, for $3 or more - and please note the 'or more' here, as anything extra you give will benefit disenfranchised workers struggling to get back to making alternative products for the world to consider (and consume).--

released March 27, 2020

And maybe Death in the Sea, too. And they're back-to-back.

I wonder if Will Oldham knows that everyone can see what posts he likes on Twitter? He sometimes likes the weirdest stuff. Weird almost pornographic posts sometimes appear on my timeline and I know without looking it's because of Will.

He strikes me as the sort of guy who knows but doesn't really care. Recall that he is the fellow who once wrote a lyric that includes the phrase, "the smell of your box on my mustache."
