  • This dynamic live album puts Bonnie "Prince" Billy (a.k.a. Will Oldham, formerly of Palace Music, Palace Brothers, etc.) in the company of a ragged, passionate backing band. Surprisingly, the band turns Oldham's beautiful, introspective, often harrowing folk songs into raw rockers without detracting from the poignancy of the compositions, calling to mind LIVE RUST-era Neil Young and Crazy Horse.
  • Oldham's wounded yelp is in fine form, and the songs--many of which sound radically reworked from their album versions--are rendered with vigor and edge. The opener, "Master and Everyone," for example, is converted from a tender, acoustic cautionary tale into a thumping electric drama. "May It Always Be" jams out with VU-esque abandon, while "I See A Darkness" rings with fierce desperation. SUMMER IN THE SOUTHEAST is a fine document, and will remind listeners why Oldham is one of the most captivating singer/songwriters around.
Professional Reviews
The Wire (p.53) - "These are otherwise raucous, raging readings, with a field of fuzzy, gnarled guitars replacing Bonnie 'Prince' Billy's more typical palette of acoustics and lap steel."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.116) - 4 stars out of 5 - "[The album] finds an uncommonly energised Oldham ranging across his capacious back catalogue, his palpable enthusiasm manifesting in unlikely between-song whoops of joy."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.64) - Ranked #6 in Mojo's "2005 Americana Albums Of The Year."
