So it's pretty much the spookiest time of the year right now, and even though I care not a whit for costumes, I like the idea of spooky machinations. As such, this week's playlist is designed to soundtrack a very specific concept I had one time that got shut down by my apparently very lame roommates at the time. 

 

See, we had a basement and a plan for a Halloween party. I said to them, "Hey roommates, let's make the basement maximum spooky by turning off all the lights and putting a single solitary chair for our guests to sit on in the dark as we play live Swans recordings for them to bug out to." And my roommates, lame that they were, said back to me, "No, Taylor, that sounds like a horrible idea." I corrected their word choice, "I believe you mean horrifying," to which they replied, "We regret the Craigslist post that brought us all together." 

 

The moral of the above anecdote is that I've wanted to make a creepy basement playlist for some time now, and I intend to use my powers as blog editor of MFT to make it happen on the web this week. From Teen Brigade's opener feedback-y electronic warble, to Norman Oak's acoustic freakery, to David Barajas' horror soundtrack stand-in sounds, all the way in to the primeval whorl and stomp of Thee Open Sex, I can imagine each and every one of the tracks on this here playlist causing a great deal of internal strife for an imagined party guest of mine as they sit alone in my basement while Chief Keef blasts upstairs. That feels right to me.
