His new mini-album, Hope, seems to revolve around the theme of parting ways, particularly "Winter Lady" ("Travelling lady stay a while, until the night is over"), and "All Gone, All Gone" ("If you think I should go, I really will go"). But it's clear constant change is something he loves. Debut Palace Brothers' LP There is No One That Will Take Care of You (Big Cat) featured members of the indie semi-legends Slint, while the follow-up, Palace Brothers was actually a solo affair. Now he records under a P alace Songs persona, with a loose bunch of musicians and a backing singer who was the erstwhile lass in the Beautiful South. In some ways, Will is an infuriating law unto himself, but musically, his heart never leaves the right place.
