And here’s the story! Two young royals, unable to pull kale in Spain, make do with sprouts… I suspect this book was meant to be educational to the young, but it’s rather charming too.
THE HAUNTING SOUNDS vol. 2 // a Halloween Mixtape RePost
As a followup to the last post (essentially, a re-post), I thought it would only be right to return to the second collection in the Haunting Sounds series. Upon it’s original post, this particular entry was far and away the most popular. Inside this collection, you will find a batch of darker, more ominous sounds from the worlds of post punk, new wave, goth rock, and beyond. Some familiar, and some chosen for their atmospheric connection to some Halloween favorites, but all of them will be worthy additions to any Halloween party playlist! The compilation is presented here with updated links for downloading the mix as a single audio file.

Please support the artists that you find and enjoy. Buy their music, merchandise and tickets to see their shows. Supporting them is the only purpose in doing this blog. Contrary to the opinions of some, music blogs are a great way to discover new music, but there will only be so much new music to go around if these artists can’t afford to support themselves through their art and commerce. Only use these mixtapes as a guide to find something to throw your (financial and emotional) support behind.
