First, I would like to thank those of you that expressed your wishes that "Out ov the Coffin" could be produced more often rather than less. That really is good to hear, but since there is only one of me, I have to divide my time a bit more in order to keep up with all the projects I've taken on. One nice side effect of "Out ov the Coffin" going to an every-other-week format is that each episode will now be loaded with a more impressive collection of new material, and more time will allow for the cream of the crop to rise naturally. "Oh, to be the cream..."

This show brings us new, original music from one of my favorite creative forces, David Lynch, who is known best as a director, although he was no stranger to creating music before now. His taste and touch can be heard in the music from Twin Peaks and Inland Empire, among other great works. Last week saw the official release of his first full-length album, Crazy Clown Time, showcasing his trademark mix of offbeat nostalgia and dark atmosphere.

New to the show this time from Denmark is the band The Foreign Resort, whose take on modern post-punk speaks of its regional roots, as well as its musical tradition. Their self-titled release just saw the light of day last week. You can check the rest of it out here.

In the industrial realm, two of the most innovative and still-fresh acts in the genre have just released new albums. The Godfathers of industrial themselves, Skinny Puppy, are back with HanDover, and the ever-interesting Haujobb has just released New World March, which has already garnered a great deal of praise among fellow artists. You'll hear selections from both in this episode, along with a new collaboration between Nashville's own Cryogen Second and Trell Solipsist.

Gary Numan has also returned to show the music world that he hasn't lost a thing after all these years. If all you know of the man is his ode to "Cars," I encourage you to pick up his new album Dead Son Rising for some fresh perspective. Of course, you can check out one of the new tracks in this podcast.

Despite it being a little late, I chose to play an Anniversary Tribute to my favorite song of all time: The Cure's "Charlotte Sometimes," which was released as a single 30 years ago last month (if you can believe that). As part of the set, I explore all 3 of the songs that the Cure wrote about Penelope Farmer's book, "Charlotte Sometimes," which also inspired the Cure's video for the song. If you haven't read the book, I recommend it for all Cure fans. It's a good, quick read.

Also on this episode: More unexpected roots of today's dark music exposed, a dash of sonic romance, "yes, you *can* dance to goth rock," and much more...
