    It's time to indulge your peculiar side.

    ARTISTdirect.com is pleased to present Thriftstore Masterpiece's "Peculiar Guy," as performed by Eddie Argos of Art Brut from the album Trouble Is a Lonesome Town, out July 9 via SideOneDummy.

    Thriftstore Masterpiece is a revolving music collective devoted to paying homage to the underdog records of years past. The debut album revisits Lee Hazlewood's 1963 lost classic Trouble Is a Lonesome Town and features Pete Yorn, Frank Black (Pixies), Isaac Brock (Modest Mouse), Courtney Taylor-Taylor (The Dandy Warhols), Eddie Argos (Art Brut) and more.

    "'Peculiar Guy' was the most difficult track to translate from the original Hazlewoodese," producer Charles Normal told ARTISTdirect. "A hillbilly waltz that I converted to a '70s rocker. But who to sing it? When the band Art Brut ended up staying at my house for a few weeks, I found the perfect foil in singer Eddie Argos, a peculiar guy indeed."

    Listen. Learn. Love.
