For Halloween, neo-prog/post-rock duo Zombi released Evans City, named for the location of the cemetery in George Romero’s Night of the Living Dead. Tom Savini remade the movie in 1990, and here Steve Moore and Anthony Paterra riff on Paul McCollough’s eerie score. As always with Zombi, the tone is both rich and chilled: hypotonic synths wail over slow, heavy drums; icy electric piano melds with lead-like baselines. It’s too late (or early) to add this to your Samhain playlist, but as long as there are pumpkins rotting on my neighbors’ porches (and that will be a long time) the world is still spooky enough to give this a listen.
