Now Hear This - Halloween 2021 Edition

 It seems like this year is just bursting with new Halloween music!
Here's some of the new releases that will definitely get you in the spirit of the season.
These tunes may be available on multiple services but I'm linking to Bandcamp because you can easily preview the whole album before buying it.

First up is Sean Keller's third Halloween mix tape, The Killer Sounds of Halloween 3D. Just like his previous releases, this one is packed with songs done in the style of popular music artists with other audio treats sprinkled in. Keller has a real talent for making sound alike songs and putting together something that feels like an old school compilation album.  If you don't have any of the Killer Sounds albums, you're really missing out. They are so much fun!

The Darkest Light is the latest from Nancy Nightmare and the Wizard. I've been digging this horror pop/rock duo for years. They have a lot of fun on their YouTube channel, check it out!

 Next is the ever dependable Halloween at High Noon with a new compilation titled PlasmaTronic. These 21 tracks are more Halloween party soundtrack than scary.

Bojo is also back with another Spooky Mix Tape, Mix of Misfortune. As with previous releases, this is a free offering with songs from established acts like They Might Be Giants, Siouxsie and the Banshees, and more.

It just wouldn't be spooky season without a release from Sam Haynes. The Bandcamp edition of  Haunted House Party has bonus mixes you can't get anywhere else.

Slasher Dave's The Jack-O-Lantern Murders is a devilishly good retro soundtrack for a movie that never existed.

Coming on October 15th, is Monsters Twelve from Figure. At the link, you can preview tracks and save the album to your Apple or Spotify playlists. Figure promises some old school drumstep, traditional dubstep, and monsters! Only a few tracks have been released but Zombies Ate My Ravers is a strong contender for my favorite so far.

Songs of the Pumpkin Boy is a Grand Rapids based 16 track compilation. I think it's safe to say you should be able to find at least one track to enjoy on this pay what you want album.

There's probably more I don't know about so feel free to drop them in the comments!
