JG Thirlwell has scored the new animated short-form series Dicktown, which airs as part of the live-action/animated hybrid anthology TV series Cake! on FXX. The show premiered on July 9 2020. You can also see it streaming on Hulu.
Dicktown was created by John Hodgman and David Rees, who wrote and star in the series as themselves. Hodgman plays “a grown up boy detective and David is my former high school bully turned partner.” Hodgman is an author who is well known for his appearances on The Daily Show and elsewhere. The show was produced by Floyd County Productions.
Thirlwell produced and performed the noir score at his Self Immolation Studio in Brooklyn, with contributions from guest musicians Pete Moffett on drums and Simon Hanes on guitar.
