Back in April, we reviewed Matt Sweeney and Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy‘s hugely anticipated new album “Superwolves”.

The much loved Joan Shelley and Nathan Salsburg have teamed up with Matt and Bonny to present the “Watch What Happens” b/w “Stay On My Shore” digital single.

In their usual eloquent style Drag City add: On their rendition of Superwolves “Watch What Happens,” Joan and Nathan slip inside the skin of the tune, adapting the original’s noirish air into a thorny folk classicism and communicating the message of self-reliance with equal parts wonder and stoic, wind-strewn beauty, streaming like nature intended from their hands and mouths. For “Stay On My Shore,” Bonny and Matt unfurl one of Joan’s best-loved tunes. Trading each other’s essential nature, Face/Off-style; they tap raw beauty into music, two ways. 

Hands across Louisville, as Joan Shelley and the Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy put on each other’s airs: Bonny and Matt Sweeney unfurl of Joan’s best-loved tunes while Joan and Nathan Salsburg reach into into the depths of the just-released “Superwolves”.

Joan Shelley & Nathan Salsburg: “Being asked to cover someone’s song is like being invited to rearrange someone’s room. Already admiring the Superwolves’ furnishings and spatial sense, we found plenty of fun and satisfaction just messing with their stuff, rifling through their drawers, sitting in their chairs, jumping on their bed, and watching what happens.”
