Check Out Neko Case Singing the ‘Squidbillies’ Theme Song
Neko Case recorded the 'Squidbillies' theme song, and it is pretty great.
The video above is a bit of a teaser for the season premier of the 15-minute Adult Swim cartoon about some Southern hill-dwelling squids. The ninth season of 'Squidbillies' premieres this Sunday, Sept. 21.
The theme song will be performed by a different band or artist each episode, with Case's haunting version accompanying the first. Other artists who'll perform the theme song include country legend Dwight Yoakam, Todd Rundgren, Centro-Matic, King Khan and the Shrines, and Milk Carton Kids. You can check out the opening sequence, made dramatic with Case's version of the theme song, below:
And if you're not familiar with the spectacle that is 'Squidbillies,' take a minute and a half to watch this clip. The show shifts from absurd to subtle with ease. It's pretty crazy, and excellent.
