The leaves are turning and we've been seeing roadside signs for haunted hayrides and corn mazes. It might just be time for some spooky music. This record is a bit of a dark horse as I had never heard of it until recently. But it's a gorgeous little album of how should I say... noir exotica? There are hypnotic organs and flutes, chiming mallet instruments and a particular electric bass guitar sound that I like to call "punchy." This music is way, way ahead of its time, as if it were meant to have been buried and re-discovered somewhere in Bristol or Birmingham in the mid-1990s.
