Jim O'Rourke's "tape music" on the Tamper album is also pretty spooky. See "He Felt The Patient Memory of A Reluctant Sea." Even more spooky by him is his album of tabletop guitar, Remove The Need.


Would like to add:

Kevin Drumm's Sheer Hellish Miasma. Not for the faint-hearted. The digipak recently reissued by Editions Mego is all black for a reason. Jesus fucking christ.

Also, I don't know how but I forgot to post about Scott Walker's "Tilt" and "The Drift" the first time around.

The weirdest thing - well, pretty much the only thing I know about Chris de Burgh is that he used to be in a band with Nick Drake before either of them had a recording career. Nick and the other guys in the band kicked Chris out because his tastes were "too pop."
Life...life...I know it's got its ups and downs.

In the someday, what's that sound.

My friend Max used to enjoy terrorising Shoreditch bars by putting this on. Considered haircuts put in disarray by the horror in the Burgh.

Sam Prekop "screaming" on the first 2 Sea & Cake records makes my skin crawl.

Swans' Soundtracks For the Blind has some genuinely creepy moments, whether it's Jarboe screaming "BLOW YOUR BRAINS OUUUUTTT!", or the loop of the little girl saying "the beautiful days" over and over again.

I woke up in the middle of the night once and 'I Was A Prisoner in Your Skull' was in my head (ha ha). Just thinking of that guy's voice then - "Everybody knows that YOU are FUCKED UP" - scared me.
- "Whatever happened to that album?"
- "I broke it, remember? I threw it against the wall, and it like, shattered."

Ligeti more than anyone really. Early Current 93(Dogs Blood Rising and Nature Unveiled) have some creepy moments, but I'm not sure I would say it scares me, though it's made people cry from fear when I've played it haha. Mostly classical music for a genuine feeling of ominous existential dread. And Ligeti is the king of that. Honorable mentions to Shostakovich and Penderecki.

Modern country. It's basically insidious, schmaltzy right-wing propaganda. They take the hooks from popular songs, chop them up, and insert them in to a rigid song format with a series of interchangeable Aryan singers - who mostly look and sound the exact same - make them sing in fake "aw, shucks" accents, and add just the right mix of nostalgia, nationalism, and blandness to make the message easy to internalize. Nashville might as well be called MiniTru.

I like dark music and sound, so mostly I've been delighted the first time I've heard a new "scary" band or artist. Hearing Diamanda Galas's Plague Mass for the first time, while also being very high, was probably the most truly anxiety-inducing music has ever been for me.

I may have previously mentioned this but Scott Walker's The Drift gave me a literal honest-to-god panic attack.

Flesh (Andrew McKenzie) covering "My Boy Lollipop."

I'm into love songs with an eerie sound; a contrast between the lyrics and music arrangement/production. The music in "Can't Help Falling in Love" sounds desperate and pleading; the noise in Slowdive's "Morningrise" is harrowing; and then there is "I Only Have Eyes For You." The aforementioned music doesn't startle me in a way that NWW or the sparser moments of Khanate does, but there is a looming sense of danger or oppression apparent. Love is fucked-up.

PiL's The Flowers of Romance and This Heat's Deceit. Ideal lights-out music.
I sing and play bass in a band called Dori.

When it comes to music...

I have no fear of scary noises.

None.

I love it.
