M. Incroyable & The Deacon
The Peculiar Pretzelmen lurk in the shadows emitting eerie sounds and spectral lights luring the curious and adventurous down dark alleys and untrodden lanes to flashy Cabaret’s and conspiratle Pubs. Whispers from unseen corners rise to a claterous chant Deeper, Darker, Weirder. Deeper, Darker, Weirder.
Here at Popa's Tunes world headquaters we are fixated on things Deeper. Darker, Weirder, and The Deacon with his 'Felix the Cat' bag of magical intruments and the mysterious M. Incroyable of The Peculiar Pretzelmen have a voodoo spell on us and everything they do gets us dancing like banshees with rubber chickens around ceremonial fires and now we have a lot to dance about!
We are very excited to have been asked to PREMIER! this new track...
FIRST LISTEN> The Peculiar Pretzelmen's new track "John the Revelator"
The Peculiar Pretzelmen's version of this staple of blues men like Blind Willie Johnson and Son House takes shape amidst a stormy build, with the layered swell of theremin, electric mandola, and moody baritone sax punctuated with expectant gongs and torn open by the chillingly rabid call and sweetly echoing response that imbue the prophet’s declaration with terror and excitement.
The Peculiar Pretzelmen are set to release in a variety of forms throughout the remainder of the year - a pair of EPs entitled Gentlemen Scoundrels: Rule Book Volume I and II to be released at the end of the summer, a comic book and digital single called "Dead Hate the Living" out this fall, and their forthcoming third full-length LP Kill and Wake at the turn of 2014, featuring cover artwork and packaging design by Brandt Peters and Kathie Olivas of Circus Posterus. (Frequent readers and scoundrels will remember Circus Posterus/Stranger Factory from the Pretzelmen’s 2012 Couch By Couchwest submissions)
ICYMI “Howling Gale” is the first single off the The Peculiar Pretzelmen’s upcoming new material
