REVISIT: Tortoise & Bonnie Prince Billy

So my lovefest for all things Bonnie Prince Billy isn't exactly a secret. However, it did take me an alarming number of listens to really get his collaboration with Tortoise. Maybe it's because it was covers and the words just weren't typical Will or something, but it never hit me until about a month ago. Late one night while working on a painting this track came on (random shuffle style) and it was absolutely perfect. So Oldham's trend of brilliance continues (at least in my mind).
