Two of our favourite guilty pleasures (Halloween and Multi-Artist Theme projects) floated across the screen in one tidy package while we were totally working browsing Facebook for work reasons – behold! Pumpkinhead 2016
Curated by free cake for every creature, they say on Facebook that it
…features original halloween-themed songs from some of the spookiest musicians on earth. Even better, if you download it or buy a cassette, all of the profits go to WOAR Philadelphia (http://www.woar.org/), an incredible organization that provides free counseling and resources for children and adults who have experienced sexual abuse.
Featuring: Lisa Prank, Dogbreth, Diners, sean henry, Richard Album, ylayali, Big Baby, Tim the Mute, Jilian Medford (of IAN SWEET), Tumbleweed, Arthur Shea, iji, Russel the Leaf, Free Pizza, Slo Ref, & Emily A. Sprague (of Florist)
I’ll have to remember to hi-five Tim the Mute next time I see him. Now full disclosure, the entire package isn’t going to be everyone’s cup of tea. The heart of this is an underproduced lo-fi aesthetic, but like the artwork and let’s admit it, the vast majority of halloween costumes you’ve ever worn, the charm oozes out and around the DIY edges.
And while we’re on the topic here’s one of our favourite Halloween themed multi artist projects.
