Lupen Crook's "Halloween"
Lupen Crook's "Halloween" single was released today, which is fitting seeing as today is, well, Halloween. For those of you unfamilar with Lupen Crook, think a british Devandra Banhart with intricate string sections. NME has this to say about the new single, "Lupen Crook's voice alone is enough to give you the creeps. So wait 'til to hear what he's singing about -- date rape, blowing your brains out, the way human being hide their inner-darkness behind bland masks." Ha. It should said though that Lupen Crook is no novelty, he's quite a talented musician and this single is marvelous, creepy and weird as hell, but marvelous nonetheless.
Here's a clip of "Halloween" in MP3 format.

Take a look at his art too, it's just as weird as the music. Stumble It!
