Right now I’m listening to “Danse Macabre” by Camille Saint-Saëns and “A Night on Bald Mountain” [by Modest Mussorgsky]. They’re great Halloween songs. “Danse Macabre,” I believe, is based off a poem about a day in the year when the skeletons and zombies rise from the dead and they dance and then they go back to sleep. The other one is just a great classical piece.
These past few days I’ve been listening to a lot of Turtle Island String Quartet; particularly “Julie-O.” It’s a cello piece and it’s just really fun and poppin’!

I found “The Way Things Go” by Mikal Cronin on the Ty Segall Pandora station, so it’s kind of in the surf rock family and it has this raw, gritty sound. I like it a lot.
“Baby Blue” by King Krule is very slow and mellow and weirdly jazzy. [It’s] a great song to kick back to.
“Don’t Wanna Be Your Girl” by Wet is really sad. It’s just a female vocalist with ambient noises in the background—it’s not very instrumental or anything—but it’s just a very melancholy song. It just has really good vibes.
