OT: Anybody know anything about Brian Harnetty & Bonnie "Prince" Billy's "Silent City" from 2009?

Just curious if anyone else out there is as blown away and intrigued
by this album as I am. Just came across a track from this album on
internet radio today. Sounds like there might be some looping
involved, but I haven't seen any specifics on how it was produced.
>From what I I find googling, Brian Harnetty is an English musicologist
who is very interested in Appalachian music and electronic music
production. Bonnie Prince Billy is a Kentuckian with a punk aesthetic.
The result is similar to what Satie might have done if he used
harmonium, drums, Appalachian folk music, electronics and samples. I'm
blown away.
