Kat Powell I should have known we could count on you to take one of my favorite Tumblr threads and bring it to glorious life. Favorite track: The Eldritch One, Jolene.

rikm A collection of Hallowe'en inspired covers delivered by Unwoman, demonstrating equal parts talent and respect.

Erica Mulkey isn't afraid to add her own style to the songs, but maintains a respect for the best qualities of the originals, resulting in a really fun and enjoyable release...

Reference: animatedamerican.tumblr.com/post/177698525912/butts-for-days-blad-the-inhaler lyrics [Original by Dolly Parton:] Jolene, Jolene , Jolene, Jolene I’m begging of you please don’t take my man Jolene, Jolene , Jolene, Jolene Please don’t take him just because you can [Dan Abbott:] The flock is screaming in the barn
 The wind itself attempts to warn
 The living of the coming of Jolene The beasts that creep and swim and fly
 Flee before the baleful eyes
 Of that before which death must die Jolene [blad-the-inhaler:] He screams about you in his sleep, And when he wakes does naught but weep 
In terror of the one they call Jolene (Original chorus) [Dan Abbott:] Sigils scratched into the earth
 Do naught to slow or stay the birth 
Into this world the end of mirth Jolene [butts-for-days:] Blackening the summer skies, With burning wings and countless eyes, We tremble at the thought of you, Jolene. [New chorus by Erica Mulkey & Dan Abbott:] 
Jolene, Jolene , Jolene, Jolene 
I offer up this gift to you, my man
 Jolene, Jolene , Jolene, Jolene Please take him ere your darkness ends this land

 [prettyokayray:] Your teeth are sharp, your mouth agape
 Your claws rend flesh, there’s no escape
 From judgement of the Eldritch One, Jolene [animatedamerican I think? I'm too old to understand Tumblr:] We cower here beneath your gaze That sets the earth and sky ablaze Have mercy at the end of days, Jolene (New chorus)

Strange creatures lurk in our town Stronger than all mortal man How are we to fight the undead Who among us can? Queer desires you mustn't speak of An evil power you can't resist Helpless against temptation And powerless to conquer it Chorus: Is this song about vampires Or is it about sex Animal hunger and bloodlust Are easier to accept And pulse-quickening fear Has nearly the same effect As a forbidden love scene A full-frontal vignette How long have we been hiding Our lust for unholy things Behind a veil of darkness Blame the devil for our sins Or do we just need more and more The mind to be teased as well As our hungry bodies, writhing On the way to a happy hell Give me just a little death Is that too much to ask To feel my heart race and my breath Stop Rpt chorus

about

Available to the public until November 2 2019 only!

All subscribers are getting this for free -- I've slightly tweaked the mix of these, so it's probably worth a download even if you've already got all the tracks.

Most songs (not Jolene! too illegal!) will be available on Unwoman's Holiday album some future year, professionally mastered. But snag it now for super cheap anyway. An evil power you can't resist says so!

released October 22, 2019

Most songs are covers. "The Eldritch One, Jolene" is a collaboration with Dan Abbott.
