Singles Only: Palace (Will Oldham) - "Gulf Shores"
There are a lot of songs that try to capture the essence of a place and fail. This song succeeds despite and because of itself.
Leave it to Will to cram insinuations of both incestual and homoerotic flirtation into just one verse. Can't a beach just be a beach?
if I whisper nothings in your ear
will you pass them on to him?
