I Like Bats (1986) follows a young Polish vampire as she navigates the difficulties of love after she falls for a psychiatrist. Wonky in a fun way. Part of the House of Psychotic Women set.
I’ve been blasting Model Citizen’s 2006 Save It for the Campfire while I get ready for the new album coming soon.
My car jam this week has been the 2008 self-titled release by El Chupa Cobras.
Earlier this week I reviewed Zeria for Horror DNA. I’ll have another review from the Film Maudit 2.0 Festival going live today.
I also did a kind of experimental/film score track for the Disquiet Junto. The prompt was to record ice hitting a glass and make something with it. Details about the process are here.
This week’s playlist contains a tribute to Charles Simic, a favorite writer of mine who died this week and to Jeff Beck. Beck was a an amazing player, but I haven’t connected with his music. I do love his playing on the Stevie Wonder track, “Lookin’ for Another Pure Love,” so you’ll find it there closing out the listening for the week.
