Bonnie "Prince" Billy "Quail and Dumplings" (video)
Published Oct 14, 2014We're getting close to being a full month into fall, now, but it looks as if Bonnie "Prince" Billy (a.k.a. Will Oldham) has his mind set on an endless summer. You'll find the famously bearded folk figure shooting down slippery water slides in the new video for his "Quail and Dumplings."
Acting as a commercial to a "wet and wild water park" conveniently also called "Quail and Dumplings," the video has our man Billy braving the waves and navigating a children's zone before puttng the moves on someone at the food court. Tying ever so slightly to the lyrics, "empty tummies" are slathered in sunscreen, and the wholesome day out apparently leads to "satisfied minds and clean hearts." You also get to see Oldham playing Poseidon as he splashes about. What's not to love?
You'll find the aquatic visual interpretation of his Singer's Grave: A Sea of Tongues single down below.
