The Slow Poisoner "Lost Hills"

(Rocktopus!) One of my fave gothic garage rock one man bands delivers a rock opera, of sorts, with slinky, spooky storysongs about a mysterious town and an ethereal dream girl and lotsa poison. It's kinda undermined by between song narration, that woulda been better if it were underscored, or if the narrative was acted out by actors. I'm all for clarity but this feels a bit like having to explain a joke. That said -- the twist ending will shock you! Unless you've seen a movie with the same twist ending. But even then it'll warmly nostalgia you! Plus lotsa poison!
