The list of names associated with this post is fairly wild: Stephen King (the author), John Mellencamp, T-Bone Burnett, Neko Case and Elvis Costello. The first three names are putting together a southern gothic musical, and the latter two names are singing some songs for its soundtrack. The musical results are excellent and just about what you would expect from Neko and Mr. Costello taking on the southern goth guise. Creepy, bouncy twang.
