Song of the Day: Bonnie "Prince" Billy - Untitled/Ebb Tide

To me, the most incredible aspect of this song, is the atmosphere created. The lingering echos, and soft guitar rhythms that repeat almost silently in the background make for one heck of a beautiful arrangement. When Oldham starts to quietly render out the overdubbed first line, "first the tide rushes in," it's almost like he's brought us with him to the sea, able to experience and feel everything he is. Gorgeous final track from the record that's filled with ambient loveliness.
