Music to Make You Shiver

Postby DaleTremont on Tue Dec 04, 2007 3:11 pm

Okay kids, here be the thread to talk about music that makes you shiver, gives you the willies, etc...etc...

I'm not talking about music that you dislike, for that see the corresponding Nickelback Bitches!!!!! thread (sorry, junesquad :wink: ), but rather the music that wouldn't be out of place as you walk through a New Orleans cemetery in the dead of night, see a man's skin melt off in a nightmare, or anything gruesome/creepy/fucked up more twisted minds than mine could conceive of.

As I mentioned in the Is there a Insert Thread Name Here thread, Aphex Twin does it for me a lot. Icct Hedral particularly, although "Curtains" also has a spine tingling quality to it, quite unsettling. There's also a Turkish electronica band called Ventochild that makes me reach for my teddy bear when I hear them.

...but that's just me.

Tori Amos' cover of Eminem's 'Bonnie & Clyde' always gives me the jeebies.

cool thread. I think there's a Halloween playlist one out there that could provide some good ideas too (but it's not quite on point here so I think they can co-exist peacefully).

For some reason I've always been really creeped out by "Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)" by Eurythmics. Lennox's somewhat strange (but cool) voice combined with that signature tune in the background...

Man why can't I think of any Scandanavian black metal bands now. I used to like that stuff once. I blame hanging out with goths.

Most of Lou Reed's The Blue Mask freaks me right the hell out. Particularly "Waves Of Fear", "The Gun" and the title track.

Watch your wife...


Gives me the shivers just thinking about it.

Really? I always thought he was a cheap knock-off of Andrew Eldritch from The Sisters of Mercy. Listen to anything off of "Floodland" and you'll see what I mean.

As far as creepy songs go, at the end of My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult's "A Daisy Chain 4 Satan" there's a creepy passage from a movie that makes the unsettling song even more so, where the guy is calling "Joan? Jooooaaaannnn.... first I'm gonna find you... then I'm going to kill you."

That's always creeps me out. But I love the song.

Some early Pink Floyd. "Careful With That Axe, Eugene".

Also, some of the Doors music is pretty creepy.

Grayfolded - by John Oswald using the music of the Grateful Dead.

The only music to ever give me an LSD flashback (utilizing some good green and a pair of high-end headphones, of course).

A Tremont Family Christmas! Feat. Little Biffy... always gives me the willies.

And yet, I always ask for another helping of willies, and so any Tremonty enduced willie dilemmas I find myself in are likely as much my own fault as theirs.

Hurmz.

To be honest, I usually disconnect to some degree from the willfully w13rd. It's like they sacrficie some degree of self-awareness by claiming they have extra oodles of it to share with the rest of us...

Yet...on that kind of score, Tony and I would probably fall overselves to mention at least something from these guys...

The Knife - Silent Shout (live)

But like Cha-ka notes, I actually heart them dearly... so the shivvers are welcome ones. The quality of the music will always supercede dilemma of artifice, I think.


And of a different flavour entirely, but the first thing I thought of was...

Elbow - Fugitive Motel

"Ted, Just Admit It" and "3 Days" by Jane's Addiction.

pretty much the entire catalog from Dalek...well, at least the beats.
Personally, I'm an atheist in the voting booth and a theist in the movie theatre. I separate the morality of religion with the spirituality and solace of it. There is something boring about atheism.

The Smiths - Suffer Little Children, all the more chilling for having Hindley's laughter in the track.

And on a more scary/fun note I'll say Shivaree's Goodnight Moon is a great song.

I suppose sometimes you need to give the people what they want, before they even know they want it?

:?

Sometimes you gotta make them suffer for your art too, I guess.

(Save from the tragically premature death of young Biffy, it'll all come good by Biff-Aid, anyway)

I believe some Third World countries use that album AND the pictures of him in his leather outfit as a cure for constipation. It's been known to break fevers, too.

Viggo Mortensen's album was pretty unsettling...I own it and can't listen to it at night. It's just a little off.

Speaking of Aphex Twin, have any of you missed out on the joy that is Salad Fingers?

The Cure - Pornography. I've been to Crawley where Robert Smith was born, and it's pretty easy to see how such a drab, colourless town could have inspired this record. Capital Punishment, Questions of Mortality and Stalking abound!

Nick Drake - Pink Moon. "Please beware of them that stare, they'll only smile to watch you while your time away". Pretty much a suicide note with chords.

Throbbing Gristle - DOA/The Third & Final Report of Throbbing Gristle. Dark, stark industrial music, replete with songs about burn victims (Hamburger Lady) and a song compiled from answer phone messages left by psychotic fans (Death Threats).

Special mentions go to: Autechre, Peter Hammill, This Heat and Bauhaus.

My speedo-freak room mate introduced this to me a while ago - what a strangely trippy creature that is!

As to shiverin' music... - Joan Baez on the soundtrack of A Fistfull of Dollars- but only the second part of that song.

Jeff Buckley's Hallelujah.

The Cure- A Forest

BRMC's Howl - nearly the whole album.

Marlene Dietrich's 'Ich bin von Kopf bis Fuss auf Liebe eingestellt'.

Vera Lynn- 'We'll meet again (also closing song of Dr. Strangelove).

And - on a slightly different note- a lot of dancehall and ragga tracks with a heavy bass-filled riddim do a lot for me -Sizzla, Capleton, Mr. Vegas, Sean Paul - I just can't help it.

Maybe I'm interpreting this thread too broadly -but all of the above tracks play pin-ball with my emotions.

Better still, how about this vintage piece from the great man? One of my favourite Waits tracks and guaranteed to give you a goose pimple or two.....

'What's He Building (in there)'?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nMqxNPsfN50


And never, never listen to Joy Division's Unknown Pleasures or Closer in the dark and alone as I once did several moons ago after a drunken night out. Not a pleasant experience I tell you. It seriously creeped me out.

Most recent 'creepy' song that I've been listening to a lot of is "Black Mirror" by the Arcade Fire. It has an apocalyptic vibe to it that, combined with Win Butler's voice, gives me the willies. But in a weird way I actually like listening to it every now and then; there are days where everything just feels ominous and throwing it on makes me less creeped out.

That is a good one. I'd say it suffices in the "shivers" department.

Evil Nine - Devil Stuff

Pure slice of being trailed by a hoard of the undead. Wears its Romero influences on its sleeves, and its a cracking instrumental.

I recommend the album, you can be special too, but for me this is the standout track.

Also, the theme from Assault on precinct 13 (original) is fun to listen to while walking dark dingy streets late at night. Had me kackin my pants.

'The Intense Humming Of Evil' by Manic Street Preachers should give you shivers. Unless creepy, aggressively slow rock music about concentration camps is the sort of thing that brightens your day.






















'The Man With The Golden Gun' by Lulu is also terrifying :shock:

I was wondering where to post this, and this seemed as good a place as any.

I've been trawling the web for free audio Lovecraft, and recently discovered this college radio Halloween chiller triple:

The whole thing runs about an hour and a half, and the stories on it are actually pretty good, if you're into that kind of thing

Anyway, near the end, at 1:31:00, the DJ signs off with this really cool and creepy bit of delta blues as his Halloween theme, and mentions a name, either the title or the band, at the end, but I can't make out what it is. Could anyone offer a second opinion?
