Crack in the Road

With Halloween been and gone, it’s likely this post will ruin your now festive vibes.

I apologise, but with this track being one of the best Halloween tracks I’ve heard this year, truthfully I’m not that sorry.

The cut in question is a tune taken from Mega Chill Records’ Halloween compilation, which you can grab from their Bandcamp now. In many ways it’s a huge detachment from what you’d expect, yet somehow Toussaint’s yearnful crooning lends itself spectacularly to the holiday. With the surf-pop tones and textures melding with the sparse and dissonant production to form a creation that occupies the Halloween season, rather that defining it.

The whole thing really is oddly affecting.
