Album Stream – ANR : Tobe Hooper
ANR has just released TOBE HOOPER, a full-length Halloween album heavily dosed with wolves, zombies, serial killers and all sorts of eeriness to keep you up at night. It’s perfect for any and all Halloween parties / nights at home alone carving pumpkins in a leatherface mask.
Among the best moments of the 14-track album are:
“Waking The Dead“, the zombie’s national anthem,
“Monster Mash feat. Jillian Mayer” a cover of the classic featuring emerging Miami star Jillian Mayer,
“Chainsaw” a perfectly Halloween Ramones cover,
“MS MR – Bones (ANR Version)” an electro remix that pushes the song to its scariest potential,
& “Willowy Eye” a beautifully dark, tragic love song
TOBE HOOPER is the bands tribute to a man of the same name, the director behind Texas Chainsaw Massacre. It goes without saying that ANR are huge horror nerds, and it shows in the dedicated approach they’ve taken to the album. Defying genre, they take wiz from Punk Rock to Future RnB, Hip-Hop to Musical Theater, Electro to Bluegrass and back again. TOBE HOOPER comes on the heels of PAT RILEY, a mixtape/album released in September, and the band is currently working on an LP due out 2013.
