You looking for stuff with a particular feel to the sound, or stuff with a particular feel to the lyrics?

In either case (and half as a joke) about about Amanda Palmer's Oasis?

"Possum Kingdom" by the Toadies is *totally* about a vampire, I've been saying it for years. . .

(okay, it's probably *really* about teen sex, but given the context, I think either way is great here)

Oh, along the same lines as my previous suggestion, Amanda Palmer's "Astronaut" and "Runs in the Family."  But with here and the Dresden Dolls, maybe that's a bit too much Amanda, if such a thing is possible.

PS, who here has listened to Jack Off Jill?

Everyone who wants to know what Monsterhearts sounds like, go listen to Strawberry Gashes.

For some reason Jawbox's "Savory" is firmly lodged in my head while reading Monsterhearts threads.
