31 DAYS OF FRIGHT: House of Shock Spooky Tunes Comp

If you're like me your iPod is probably filled with spooky tunes year 'round, not just when it's socially acceptable to listen to stuff like horror film soundtracks and kitschy novelty tunes like "Dinner with Drac".

The biggest problem I have with Halloween music, though, is the availability. Tons of Christmas compilations seem to hit the shelves and download sites each year – even from bands like Los Straightjackets – while us horrorphiles have to dig through used vinyl bins in the hopes of finding a track here and there.

Luckily, there's stuff like HOUSE OF SHOCK. Not to be confused with the New Orleans haunted house or the side project from Go-Go's drummer Gina Shock, this free compilation features 24 haunted tracks that run the gamut from jazz and cha-cha to surf-inspired instrumentals and garage rock from the awesomely-named Little Tibia and the Fibulas.

The comp even tosses in some vintage radio spots like a bored-sounding Colonel Sanders imploring you to give away Kentucky Fried Chicken to trick or treaters!

This ghoulishly great collection is free but only available till Halloween, so get your copy now!
