The Wiggly Tendrils, a cross-country writing collective, created an album up that went up on Beat the Indie Drum yesterday. It’s free, it’s indie, it’s Halloween…it’s kind of cutesy, but it’s also fairly fun.
All the bands involved in Spooky Tendrils came up with the song ideas, and the Wiggly Tendrils wrote them to spec. The opening track, from the Parents, features the superb lines “Let’s paint this town red / From Twilight to the Dawn of the Dead,” which is just the thing to snag my attention and rope me in for the duration. There are also songs about Dr. Mario giving you pills and a Jewish werewolf.
You can stream tracks, look at lyrics, and download the whole thing on the album’s release page.
