It’s been a while since we caught up with Indiana’s Hypocrite In A Hippy Crypt. Back in August 2011, NMM streamed a few songs from their initial release “Tweaker In the Park”. Well, the enigmatic act, the solo project of an anonymous musician from Bloomington, released his sophomore album “Tweaker Two” this week n Tree Machine Records.
A darker effort, Mysteryman has replaced much of the sedate, acoustic guitars from the first release with electric guitar, resulting in a sound that, while more groove-like, still stands apart, like a lone tree in the middle of a vast tundra. More melodic, but still with the faint aura of a quainter time. More peaceful. Fortress of solitude-y if you will.
You can stream “Freak Me Out” below. You can order the whole album for yourself on bandcamp here.
