Lee Rocker

Lee Rocker of the Stray Cats, whose rockabilly style stood out in the MTV era of spandex and synthesizers, pays tribute to his vintage rock instrument and some of the other "cats" who play upright bass on his new single, "Dog House Shuffle."  Baltimore electronic dance party maestro Dan Deacon, no stranger to lyrical death themes to contrast his upbeat, blippy sound, has a creepy new video out in time for Halloween that shows a decomposing woman getting eaten by maggots and beetles and then returning as a plant. And Sharon Van Etten has a new song that appears in the documentary about surrogacy, Made in Boise, which premiered on PBS last night.
