I saw them live in the 80's in Victoria, one of the best concerts I've been to!  Funny people should mention Rush in earlier posts, Geddy Lee and Rob Wright are my favorite bassists, I've seen Rush live numerous times as well, both bands rock in their own way.

I've put together a video sampler - 15 or so seconds of each of the 8 tracks on the album "Halloween, I'm Afraid" which is available at iTunes

ALBUM MINI-REVIEW: Dulcet Jones - More Halloween, I'm Afraid |self-released, 2014| 4/5, instrumental/soundtrack

1. Asylum Wedding, 2. Lobotomy Ward, 3. More Halloween, I'm Afraid, 4. Night Circus, 5. November First Coming Down, 6. Red Narasimha, 7. Release The Bats, 8. Steampunk Lullaby

Here's an instrumental album which brings atmospheric tracks with a horroresque feel. The song writing accents moods rather than techniques which is a great option when applied to a soundtrack. Jim Graham - the multi-instrumentalist behind Dulcet Jones, did it successfully as every track here tells a different story.

"Asylum Wedding" sounds slow and melancholic but you'd surely expect some scary voices to come in with such guitar & bass arrangements. "Lobotomy Ward" comes out perhaps a little too gentle compared to what the title could suggest, though the entire composition is well done with a haunting, spacey mood and delicate guitar tunes. On the contrary, in "More Halloween, I'm Afraid" there's a little dialogue between the bass and high-pitched guitar, all wrapped up in a ghostly 'boooo!' atmosphere. A beautiful Russian ballerina accompanied by red nosed clowns may come up in your mind with "Night Circus". Next, there's "November First Coming Down" - a nostalgic acoustic song which is not deprived of darker moments. The piano based "Red Narasimha" may sound as delicate as a feather, but the low tuned synth accompanied by a bit of echoing makes an intriguing contrast and attracts the listeners’ attention. "Release The Bats" has an old-school gothic feel thanks to a notoriously graded bass and noisy guitars but the composition becomes a bit shallow and experimental at times. Finally, what would you expect to hear in a song entitled "Steampunk Lullaby"? Steam SFX, of course. And a bit of an old music box vibe. They are all there but also a spacey, ambient arrangement which finishes the album and in addition, mixes with "Asylum Wedding" very well.

If you're tired of simple, rowdy music, make sure you'll get this album, which will surely fill your imagination with dozens of ideas.

Here's the latest installment of my diy recording tips, this one describes how I made the layered overlapping synth tracks on "Overmed Daydream", one of the tracks from "Halloween, I'm Afraid".

#diyrecording, #halloweenmusic, #spooky,  
This installment deals with getting a layered sound by overlapping several short synth tracks to create an ever changing, almost floating effect. I used this idea to construct the main part of "Overmed Daydream", and chose th...

Spooky Instrumental Music With a Halloween Theme
Introduction
Formerly a classical guitarist I switched gears a few years ago and stopped performing as a solo guitarist and began experimenting with composing and recording multi-instrument music using synthesizers, computers, guitars and found sounds.  It became evident that I like writing darker sounding music so I went with that and created "Halloween, I'm Afraid", an album of tracks suitable for halloween, or whenever you feel like listening to spooky, creepy music.  The album is available in itunes at http://itunes.com/dulcetjones/halloweenimafraid
