Happy Halloween, Y'all!

It’s time once again for my most favorite of holidays: Halloween. I hope you’ve all got plans to dress up in all manner of costumes and have a spooky, kooky time all weekend long in celebration of the magic wonderfulness of this particular holiday. 

For some reason I’m feeling rather witchy this year, so below is an assortment of witch-centric jams – classics and covers. Enjoy, and happy haunting you dear ghouls and dolls.

Video of The Day #188 - Halloween Edition: Lily & Madeleine

There’s a bunch of videos out there. Some of them are good. Some of them are a cut above. I like to think my picks for Video Of The Day are a cut (or two) above.

It’s Halloween, so what better time to scope out Lily & Madeleine‘s video for “Westfield”? The video’s teen slasher flick feel is even more shiveringly acute when paired with the dreamy, honeyed vocals of the ladies and the slow, steady burn of the song.  Oh, and be ready for a heck of a twist at the end. Trick or treat, indeed.

Watch Roger Harvey take a bare bones approach to “Halloween” for Static Sessions

Roger Harvey

Roger Harvey is a Philly-via-Pittsburgh artist who has a definitive and almost instantly likable style, one which many have compared to bands like Bright Eyes, Neutral Milk Hotel and Manchester Orchestra (yeah, not half bad).

Harvey’s debut LP Twelve Houses was a beautifully written and expertly produced output full of intricate arrangements. But for local video series Static Sessions he decided to take one of the album’s more impressive moments, “Halloween,” and strip it down to its core.

The “Halloween” we hear on the album is highlighted and driven by a steady ...

When it comes to Halloween, it doesn’t get any more classic than Michael Jackson‘s legendary video for “Thriller.” Those of us who came of age in the 80s remember watching this video time and time again, and I still get a shiver watching it now. And can we appreciate just how ahead of the times this clip was in terms of the use ...
