jay reatardKicking off volume 10 of the Halloween Indie Rock Songs playlist mix series is the demonic rocker Jay Reatard. Following Reatard is a new Halloweenish song from the Montreal super group Clues. Not all of the songs are necessarily dark or spooky, but each are so awesome in their own way that any association with Halloween is a good enough excuse to include them in this mix series.

For this installment, the second published today alone, we've unearthed tracks and treats from MGMT, Spoon, Iron & Wine, Headlights, The Kinks, Motion Turns It On, Black Lips, Conor Oberst and the Mystic River Valley Band, My Teenage Stride, As Tall As Lions, The Rattles, and a stunning Radiohead-esque track, "Danse," from LA alternative rockers Lemonwilde.

"Of Moons, Birds & Monsters" - MGMT
