Okay, so HBO’s True Blood may have lost me when Sookie was revealed to be half-fairy, but goddamn if the show’s soundtracks don’t continue to impress. Music Supervisor Gary Calamar has a supernatural knack for pulling together killer musicians for one bloody good collection of songs, and the fourth such release packs as much bite as ever (and I’m done).

Over 14 tracks, there are unlikely bedfellows (Iggy Pop and Best Coast’s Bethany Costentino), ungodly covers (Jenny Lewis and The Animals’ Eric Burdon’s “Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood”), and rising up-and-comers (CoSigned duo Deap Vally).

On Deap Vally’s “(She’s A) Wanderer”, Julie Edwards lays down a sturdy strut of a beat while Lindsey Troy comes hard with deep stomps of reverb-dipped guitars. There’s some sweetness in the background vocals, but there’s this murky underbelly, making the cut and the show a fitting pair. Check it out below.
