Electric Compost Heap playlist for 10/31/2012

Wed, 10/31/2012

It's Halloween at the Electric Compost Heap, and that's our favourite holiday of the year. We decorated the Heap nice and pretty for the occasion and dug out some of our favourite tunes for the occasion. Songs about zombies, graveyards, ghosts, life and death and the tenuous thread that separates the two. It's a happy show, really. The seasons are in flux and we head into the dark times for a little while...hope you enjoy!

Hey Seanain! Glad you liked it. Samhain/Halloween/Dia De Los Muertos is definitely the holiday of choice in the Heap. So satisfying on so many levels, and it lends itself well to music!
