Are you still looking for more great Halloween music for the evening’s festivities? Here are a few albums you may wish to check out for your Halloween party needs, and for some great creepy music for everyday.
Caravan of Thieves – Funhouse – If you find old-fashioned circuses, clowns and side-show acts creepy or scary, this may be a perfect album for your Halloween. This album channels the dark mysteriousness of Ray Bradbury’s circus stories, or the circuses and clowns in the Sarah Jane Adventures and Torchwood.
Real Tuesday Weld – I, Lucifer – This album tells a story somewhat along similar lines to bits of Good Omens, a fantastic book by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett about the Apocalypse. It follows Lucifer’s fall from Heaven, not quite a Halloween theme, but I still always find this one a perfect fit for this holiday season. The rest of the Real Tuesday Weld albums are similarly fitting, but this one is my favorite.
Poe – Haunted – as the title suggests, this album is a bit creepy, in a good way. It reminds me of the Amityville horror stories I read as a kid.
Other bands I included this year on my Halloween playlist were Varlet, He’s My Brother She’s My Sister, and Penguin Cafe Orchestra, plus the ubiquitous “Thriller” and “Moondance” (which for me fits this season too, despite being a love song).
