Last few days have been crazy, so prepare for a double whammy!

Day Three- Tom Waits

Tom Waits is very well known on this (and every) music forum for good reason. Mixing Jazz, Polka, Blues, a healthy taste for pop ballads, and wild host of other genres together, he is known as a musical mad scientist in the music community. It would be very easy for me to just this slot to his darkest albums- Bone Machine and Blood Money, for a Halloween playlist, but that would be selling him short. On a bunch of his albums you'll find songs about murder, paranoia, death, and the much darker side of the impoverished, I go as far as to say his songs that touch on these subjects are his best works. Best music for locking your door, blocking with a chair, and turning all of the lights off. A lot of weird folk come out on Halloween...

Day Four- Akira Yamaoka

Akira Yamaoka was the long time composer for the video game series, Silent Hill, and, quite frankly, half the reason the games were freaky. Using a little bit of portishead style trip-hop, noise, and a tinge of post rock and industrial, his music is that of empty streets, thick fogs, and the unexplainable horrors waiting within them. Perfect for checking out that old abandoned factory where three people have gone missing, those stories everyone keep telling can't be real, right?
