Music Monday: Bonnie 'Prince' Billy

I listen to the I See A Darkness album - for which this is the title track - a lot during winter; it seems appropriate somehow, on these dark and frosty nights, to wrap myself in a blanket and absorb the bleak beauty of Bonnie 'Prince' Billy's lyrics.  As both a reflection on the nature of depression ("Did you ever notice, the kind of thoughts I got... And then I see a darkness") and a paen to friendship ("I hope that someday buddy/We have peace in our lives...Did you know how much I love you"), this song is incomparable.
