Scott Walker - 'Epizootics!'

'Epizootics' is the first song on Scott Walker's new 2012 album, 'Bish Bosch', released just a few weeks ago. Although a bit less bleak than his 2006 bleaker-than-bleak album 'The Drift', this new album is no less bizarre and leaves the listener wondering what strange universe this guy now inhabits, especially given his earlier music from the 1960's. One of the best Youtube comments I've ever seen came with this video. Nitewars says:
I used to put "The Drift" on at dinner parties, just to see the moment where the conversation stops and everyone collectively asks, "what the hell is this?"
