Nick Reinhart 'Scary Sounds II' (album stream)
Published Oct 31, 2014We've already told you about all the albums you should be listening to this Halloween, but if you're searching for more scary sounds, Nick Reinhart just released an album appropriately called Scary Sounds II.
As the title indicates, this is a sequel to the Tera Melos singer-guitarist's 2013 release Scary Sounds. Its 16 tracks were composed entirely on guitar, and he managed to get some uniquely alien sounds out of his instrument.
Reinhart explained the album with the following statement:
I've wanted to do a Halloween themed, guitar-based ambient record for a long time now. Halloween is really special for me. I worked the seasonal shift at Party City for years — into my late twenties — surrounded by clueless 16-year-old first-jobbers, just to be inundated with the spirit of the holiday. I'd heard lots of 'Halloween sounds' recordings over the years, and it was important to make this recording a conscious and focused effort. In other words, it's not just me hitting record and then farting around on my pedals. there was a lot of thought put into every sound created.
Every single sound on the recording came from a guitar — albeit a very processed guitar, but 100 percent guitar. My dream would be for people to play this on their porch to scare the shit out of trick or treaters, or at haunted houses or parties. Anything Halloween related. Not everyone is into noisy, ambient records, but ALMOST everyone is into Halloween!
