Goodtime John & Bonnie Prince Billy :: New Life

For the last 20+ years, Irish singer/songwriter J. Cowhie has released music under his own name and the Goodtime John banner. Now he’s back with the mighty Will Oldham aka Bonnie “Prince” Billy in the cut with him. On the recently released “New Life,” Cowie applies AOR textures to his minimal form, conjuring up a grand but sparse sense of atmosphere that wouldn’t feel out of place on a late-era Pink Floyd recording.
