Shame on me, I forgot posts for both the best songs from October and a nice festive batch for a Halloween post. Unfortunately I have to say that there will be no best of October post, as things have been very very slow and through the past month all that has been cycling through my iPod shuffle has been muzak from previous months or songs from the far past, simply clicked to evoke nostaligic fuzzy feelings. The weather is way too cold for Halloween (it was snowing for a brief pinch today), but I will still leave you with some tunes to jam to maybe when you’re, oh I don’t know, uploading hilarious photos from All Hallows Eve parties onto your facebook profile.

Speaking of ghouls and ghosts and werewolves and vampires (wink), Hey! How about that group Vampire Weekend! I just picked up some tunes from the groups new single on iTunes, Mansard Roof. I can’t really explain what type of muzak this is, the best I can do is it’s like a poppy, video-game indie alt group that could score a classical film in a very interesting and unique way. The single came with a b-side, “Ladies of Cambridge”, which is just as good as the single itself. I love their lo-fi sound, and I finally have an album to look forward to now. So here are both the tunes from the new single. Love the artwork as well.
