Boo! It’s that time of year again — the leaves are falling, the candy’s on sale, and everyone is getting in the mood for winter. Before the cold months really break out of their slumber, though, we’ve got our annual Halloween Day Open House at KEXP today! To get you in the mood for the festivities, KEXP has put together a video roundup chock-full of your favorite bands playing haunting, creepy, or otherwise moody songs in the spirit of the holiday. Starting things off are a couple of classics from Ryan Adams and Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, before we move on to cuts from Blitzen Trapper, Sufjan Stevens, M83, Say Hi, We Were Promised Jetpacks, and Patrick Wolf.
