Here are some frightening tunes for the Hallowe'en festivities. The first track is one by Wolf Eyes, which makes heavy metal look like twee. If you haven't heard of Wolf Eyes, then let me explain. It's not supposed to be music, it's supposed to be noise; it's part of a genre known as noisecore. This song will make you feel like you're being stabbed in the face. The next is the Hallowe'en prevention satire song that came out last year which is an indie lovers dream collaboration (and the proceeds went to UNICEF). Included was Arcade Fire's Win and Regine, Beck, David Cross, Devendra, Feist, Elvira: Mistress of the Dark, Islands J'aime, Jimmy Tamborello, Rilo Kiley's Jenny and Blake, Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore, Smoosh's Asya and Chloe, Wolf Parade's Dan and Spencer, and Karen O and MORE. It's quite amazing (it's fun listening to figure out who is singing). The rest are self explanatory. Also refer back to the Evangelicals post for a Halloween E-card.
