Welcome to Goth Country

When it comes to musical genres, I think I’m pretty much game for anything. So when friend of Need Coffee, Patrick Ogle, decided to post a Kickstarter for a collection of goth covers of country songs…I signed up immediately. I also appreciate it when he says things like this:

Genres are just marketing tools. What is good is good and most genres have good and bad in them. This record is my homage to country and my belief is that these songwriters are among the best.

If you want to hear his musical project, Thanatos, do versions of tunes originally by Kris Kristofferson, Lucinda Williams, and Guy Clark (among others), then go throw some coin at this. And if you want to sample some Thanatosian sounds, check out the Bandcamp.
