Passion of the Weiss Halloween Mixtape #2 — Mixed by Evan Nabavian

Spooky, Scary. Something.
By    October 31, 2014


Evan Nabavian knows where the chalupas are buried.

Without realizing what I was doing, I recently started putting together a playlist of creepy, unsettling tracks. Now, I have no patience for the horror genre. I’m anxious and neurotic enough that my imagination really doesn’t need help scaring itself. However, I make two exceptions: 1) Resident Evil 4, which is just an awesome game, and 2) The chilling sounds you can find on soundtracks, psych records, and beat/electronic oddities. I picked songs for their atmosphere: a Persian folk song turned psychedelic dirge, the theme from a 60s yakuza flick, and madcap instrumentals from French 70s vanguards. It makes for a macabre listen on Halloween, though not as scary as what you’ll encounter at the 14th Street Taco Bell this Friday night. That’s where NYC’s dark forces come to roost.
