Watch a Puppy and a Blindfolded Bonnie 'Prince' Billy Sing the Astonishing "Blindlessness"

by James Rickman


"I can't see what I am doing / It's like a dog is standing on my face." So begins the eerie and flat-out gorgeous "Blindlessness." Clearly Will Oldham, aka Bonnie 'Prince' Billy, has been spying on PAPER, which is actually run by a handful of very agile puppies. The dog in this video mostly stands beside a blindfolded Oldham, adding its own vocals throughout the song. And because Oldham can tenderly cover AC/DC's "Big Balls" and release a an aching ballad called "You Have Cum In Your Hair and Your Dick is Hanging Out," no amount of yapping can diminish the song's beauty.

Watch the video, directed by Kyle Armstrong, above. "Blindlessness" and its a-side, "Mindlessness," are out now on Drag City.
