True Blood: Music From the HBO Original Series, Volume 2
With its extremely hot naked people eating each other, True Blood is HBO’s most rock & roll show. No surprise, then, that it snagged new songs from major artists (Lucinda Williams, Beck), along with some devilish oldies (13th Floor Elevators, Screamin’ Jay Hawkins). Williams explores sex, death and regret with Elvis Costello, and Beck contributes a fang-y hip-hop/blues grind. And Bob Dylan’s ”˜Beyond Here Lies Nothin’’ ”“ about a love that transcends time ”“ is perfect for this.
