Album · 1995 · 10 Songs. But there's still an enigmatic charm to the opening trio of tunes, with "More Brother Rides" (which builds an unusual web of sound as it shuffles between two chords) and "Viva Ultra" (which features a few bum notes, despite the song's simplicity). Work Hard/Play Hard" is strikingly loud and uptempo compared with Oldham's typical penchant for the slow and crestfallen. New Partner" uses the simplicity of a classic country song to evoke Willie Nelson, while "Cat's Blues" adds bluesy guitar courtesy of Bryan Rich, whose lines.

The influence of Appalachian folk music is tremendously manifest in Viva Last Blues, Will Oldham's third album under the Palace moniker. But rather than simply copping the rustic mystique of early American music, he chose to recreate it on his own terms. Combining stark acoustic numbers with Neil Young-style rockers, Oldham managed to expand his sound significantly without sacrificing the character and intimacy of his early offerings. Producer Steve Albini leaves every instrument crisp and distinct, allowing Oldham's songs to shine through with no intrusive atmospherics. Perhaps that was because the album captures Brainiac at that momentous threshold between raw, nervous energy and cold calculation. 056: A Tribe Called Quest The Low-End Theory.

This song is by Palace Music and appears on the album Viva Last Blues (1995). I'm gonna turn my back for awhile, downWhile nothing bad can or will befallThe lights welcome me all by myselfAnd the fires only bronze they do not burn.
