Three Queens in Mourning “Stablemate” – Listen

We’ve mentioned before that, of course, we love all the Tracks that get featured on a more or less daily basis – but love is not a constant.   There are gradations, some is the love of just a day, some is the love that grows slow, and some is the love that is instantaneous and forever.  Meet Three Queens in Mourning and fall in love forever.

Having come together in 2018 as a one-off tour band to support the launch of Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billie’s book of lyrics ‘Songs of Love and Horror’, Alasdair Roberts, Alex Nilsen and Jill O’Sullivan were corralled into the studio to record an album of those same songs – with additional new songs by Will Oldham himself.  Today’s song gathers together the ley lines running through this band to forge a crisply hypnotic masterpiece of drone-folk, with sky soaring vocals and earth ploughing harmonies and the throbbing power of wonderment.  It’s good.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
