Happy Halloween, Pop & Hiss readers.
As this Oct. 31 rears up, once again this year spooky music has taken a back seat to the more jolly tunes of Christmas. Already, holiday-themed albums from Sugarland, David Archuleta and Bob Dylan have found their way into the marketplace. And though Dylan's holiday growling may indeed scare some small children, it's not going to work as a soundtrack to your costume party.
Thankfully, Brooklyn's art-rock oddity Tim Fite once again has us covered. A Halloween tradition for your local music geek, Fite today released his third free Halloween-inspired EP. The artist is signed to Silver Lake's Anti- Records, the more adventurous brand in the Epitaph empire, and his free EPs provide a quick snapshot of the multi-genre range of his recorded works for the label.
