Halloween is, and always has been, Sam Cooper's favorite holiday. And as such, he's long been disappointed in the scarcity of Halloween music in the world. Determined to remedy this lack of seasonally spooky tunes, he offers "Hallowe'en Nights," an EP of original All Hallow's Eve songs.
Performed entirely by Sam, the EP was mostly recorded on a vintage Tascam 388 tape recorder (analogue, baby!), and explores rustic, haunting interpretations of folk, blues, and psychedelia, while covering lyrical ground from lonely ghosts to autumnal love.
So get into the Samhain spirit anytime you want with Sam Cooper's "Hallowe'en Nights" EP, available for instant listening and pay-what-you-want download.
Enjoy, and Happy Halloween!
