O'Death

Add Date: October 28

Artist: O'Death

Album: Broken Hymns Limbs and Skin

Label: Kemado

Genre: Indie folk, freak folk

Comments: Rockabilly folk jigs? What is this? All Music enlightens: "They use folk styles — primarily bluegrass and old-time music — for a foundation, but punk, grunge, swing, rock, metal, and jazz figure heavily in their arrangements... a gothic folk band [with] an inspired blend of singing, talking, and screaming." This one's worth checking out. Start with track 3 and if you're immediately horrified, then they've done their jobs right.
