    ARTISTdirect.com has partnered with singer-songwriter David J of Bauhaus and Love and Rockets fame to premiere not one but two solo songs! Those songs are "Dagger in the Well" and "Hank Williams to the Angel of Death" from his latest solo masterpiece, Not Long for this World. What better day than Halloween?

    Listen to "Dagger in the Well" and listen to "Hank Williams to the Angel of Death".

    "Dagger in the Well" is a haunting song, lead by David J's intimate voice and the gentle strumming of an acoustic guitar. There's power in its low-key nature. "Hank Williams to the Angel of Death," which is one of our favorite titles, comes on a little stronger, with David J delivering his lyrics as a spoken with his deep, rich, commanding speaking voice. It's ominous and will make you feel like you are being visited by the real angel of death for a moment or two.

    The songs are dark slices of rootsy Americana, the kind of songs that are sung by the campfire in the woods in October. They are possessed of slice-of-life feel!

    If you haven't heard the songs yet, listen to "Dagger in the Well" and "Hank Williams to the Angel of Death" now!

    Did you like "Dagger in the Well" + "Hank Williams to the Angel of Death?"
