THE SOUNDS OF HALLOWEEN // a mixtape for The Halloween Empire

It’s the last weekend before Halloween so naturally, there will be many a party taking place this evening. I’m cutting it a little close here, but I thought it would be a good time to break out some longplay mixes that offer a special soundtrack for a spooky night on the town. This particular mix originated on a Halloween themed blog that I helped with a couple of years back and given the timelessness of many Halloween favorites, I thought it might still be worth a listen. The entire mix is filled with classic Halloween themed surf rock go-go jams, eerie post punk tracks, haunting dream pop gems, and all sorts of other goodies. The tracklist is not up at the Soundcloud link, but if i remember correctly, you’ll hear treats from:

Cults // The Fresh & Onlys // Jay Reatard // Wolf Parade // Joy Division // Pictureplane // Grimes // Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti // Ghostland Observatory // Crystal Castles // Ministry // Siouxsie & The Banshees // The Ramones // Dead Man’s Bones // Echo & the Bunnymen // Bauhaus // North American Halloween Prevention Initiative

Share the Halloween goodness and send the mix to a friend or reblog for all to enjoy. Get out there and have a tremendous time. Be safe and make sure there’s no razor blades in your cocaine or heroin in your candy apples. HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
