Halloween Songs from around the Web

The web - get it!? anyway, this photo is "Dewy spider web". Licensed under Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 3.0 via Wikimedia Commons.

It's the time of year when everyone is running around in costumes asking for candy (or maybe that's just a typical day for you - for most of us, anyway, that type of thing is limited to Halloween)... so we've been crawling the web for some of our Halloween favorites (all licensed Creative Commons, of course). 

Here at the Free Music Archive, we've got quite a collection, including Oddio Overplay's picks - 52 Horror Releases

There are also mixes on ccMixter.org via Mind Map That Music: "Halloween, Halloween, Halloween" and the "Trick or Treat Edition

And selections from archive.org's Netlabels - selections from ambientcollective and Happy Puppy

Or if you don't want to stray far from the FMA, you can browse stuff tagged Halloween, or selections from WFMU's Dark Night of the Soul

Happy haunting!

Kellee Maize: The Remixes

Kellee Maize The Remixes

For all those of you following Kellee Maize and her releases here is something different. The independent rapper, singer, activist, and entrepreneur just released her new album, The Remixes, taking the nine of her greatest hits and taking them for another spin. The album is definitely one to bring you much needed energy for the day. Filled with great electronic arrangements and plenty of great beats there is just nothing more to add, so let’s start with a little preview.

In Tune is the first track to fully set you off on a journey through this new dance sound. It takes you up and down with its rising synths, just to drop down to uncover some great new beats and fully showcase Kellee’s lyrics.

I Insist starts off with more bass, quickly diving into the singer taking the floor, and returns to the unforgivable sound that floats between soulful sounds to drop-it-down beats.
