With this tune I reveal once again my unscrupulous leftist agenda by *politicizing* Halloween. And the video introduces an old friend of mine, Esmerelda the Skeleton. Hell of a gal, mighty fine dancer.
A song for tweens about a vampire going through some self-identification issues. [more inside]
I discovered this theme while musical typing my last name into GarageBand. [more inside]
A murder ballad for the October challenge. Guitar and vocal recorded with two mics in one take, on the first take. (lyrics NSFW) [more inside]
Just sneaking this one under the wire for the Hallowe'en challenge. A thrown-together palate cleanser from the recent power pop -- a piece of Eastern European-flavored surf about the scariest thing I can think of. I actually gave myself the shivers when I was putting together the ending so it's probably worth sticking around for that. [more inside]
A cover of the Misfits song, slowed way down and given a sort of old sci fi movie feel. Featuring extra creepy vocals by the incredible snsranch-- all shall fall to the power of his burning hand!
no more freaky people with humpbacks! spontaneously scary vocals by ariel. guitars by the chillmost delivery system. recorded in a somewhat more innocent time.
A special reminder for all concerned, in this special time of year: Friends don't let friends self-immolate. [more inside]
a short burst of a soundtrack for an imaginary and possibly crap horror film. [more inside]
made this a few years ago with Beep Map which is a plug in that i have no idea how to use.....but managed to make this...which isnt perfect but oh well [more inside]
Remix. Faster - varispeeded to within an inch of its spectral life. New drums. Modest EQ tweak.
Culted was conceived after watching a special on Mass Murderers. An industrial sound with cinematic undertones and a touch of electronica. [more inside]
On this Day of the Dead, I bring you this festive reminder: no matter where you run, no matter where you hide, the Grim Reaper will catch you. He'll also catch your cat, he'll catch your dog, he'll catch your goldfish; he's gonna get us all. [more inside]
Recorded in response to the way we punish women who fight back against abusive partners. there are many examples of Women speaking up in opposition to violence by partners... but in My experience it seems men often try to argue (ignoring the facts and statistics) that "women are 'just as' abusive" [more inside]
Sometimes, even that which goes bump in the night has to get down with chance. [more inside]
Something horrible has happened in this place. It will never be the same. Be thankful you weren't present. [more inside]
Featuring, in thier MeFiMu debut, the three resident witches of the Dundee household - the High Teas (geddit?). We're anticipating a call from the Royal Shakespeare Compnay any time about now....... so - Mirren, Dench et al - feel the fear...
serendipitous collaboration on a (haunting) song. [more inside]
It's been way, way, way too long since I posted any music here, or in fact recorded anything. Anyway, it's always rough starting back up, but always a little interesting. Here's a song I was planning on submitting for the monthly challenge, but apparently I am unable to make scary music. [more inside]
I don't know what's scarier: re-imagining your favorite early-60s Halloween novelty record sounds as Garageband "dub," a full MIDI trumpet section, or the slug people who overtake the vampires late in the song. (You'll know it when you hear it.)
Quake with fear, for this is where the wild things are. Or at least emanate forth from. [more inside]
A scary song about my smelly apartment that will hopefully make you nauseous. [more inside]
Does covering the ending theme of a Japanese horror movie count as a scary song for this month's challenge? Well, I'm posting it anyway. The only thing scary is thinking I can singing like Van Tomiko.
This doesn't sound scary, but it's about something that is.... [more inside]
Oh god. Oh god, it's running. [more inside]
I am re-posting this at the suggestion of another user, this time with lyrics included. This and others are available here. Looking at Wiches Some say they're having a pretty good time And they're working on quitting this town. Everything's working out fine for me. You should see the way I get around. Like a dry drunk Down at the mall. Looking at watches, He feels something crawl Out of a memory He has of a girl. Looking at witches, Down at the mall. And ain't we got friends that are long ago gone and that's all that we want them to be? Nothing but nothing And nothing alone Could make them mean nothing to me. Sometimes in winter you get to go home. You get to dress darkly. You hang up the phone. You walk home from Pittsburgh With one thing in mind. Sometimes in winter, you leave things behind. And we miss when you sing Those old country songs. We get them for free around here, but we don't keep them long. Because we can't keep them long.
yeah, but with cello instead. and lush deep female frontvox. [more inside]
Another one from the deep archives, and yet very much in tune with the monthly challenge. Originally credited to LSD49, it's an edit of an edit of a remix of an extended jam. [more inside]
An ancient and extremely rough instrumental demo. Written after a visit to the battlefields of Flanders. It's not scary.......just a little bit haunted........ [more inside]
Halloween music for choreographed skeletons, skeletons on bikes in the B part.
Deep in the City, a multicolored monster lurks, waiting to devour cavalier hipsters whilst they cavort in a dingy loft. [more inside]
A song about a common situation - you know, when you go out on a date and your girl gets kidnapped by a giant robot bug. [more inside]
This is supposed to be in Latin: A call to wake the dead. [more inside]
A nightmarish take on children's music. I always imagine myself stuck in a carnival funhouse being chased around by evil clowns when I listen to this. From 1995 and one of the first songs I ever wrote. Some completely out of control layering towards the end! [more inside]
Figured a bass overdriven would be spooky enough. [more inside]
