The video for “New Black Rich (Tusks),” one of the originals from Bonnie “Prince” Billy’s mostly self-referential Singer’s Grave A Sea Of Tongues, finds Will Oldham rocking an exceptionally long walrus beard, donning a suit and top hat, strolling through town, dancing mystically, and romancing a lounge singer in a dive bar. It’s eerie, entrancing, and deeply sentimental. The song itself has a Magnolia Electric Company tinge to it and is one of the prettiest Oldham’s ever done. Watch the Claudia Crobatia-directed clip above. -- Stereogum
