Bringing to mind the tunefulness of 60s acts such as the Beatles and the Beach Boys, Hypocrite in a Hippy Crypt balances its pop sensibilities with the lo-fi honesty of Elliott Smith and Sebadoh. In June of 2011, Hypocrite in a Hippy Crypt released its first full-length, “Tweaker in the Park,” on the Indiana-based label Gulcher Records. The album generated a positive buzz, and eventually garnered attention in the local music scene of Bloomington. After several bouts of drug-induced mania, two arrests, a messy custody battle and a near-death experience, the artist known as Hypocrite in a Hippy Crypt finally finished a follow-up album, which is currently being mastered.
