Geographic North releases new Halloween compilation, feat. Secret Pyramid, Félicia Atkinson, Jefre Cantu-Ledesma, and more

Hot off the heels of that stellar Nick Malkin cassette, Geographic North is back with a sprawling, spook-tacular compilation of 21 power hitters in the experimental, ambient, drone, and “miscellaneous” categories.

Don’t Look Now: Aural Apparitions from the Geographic North features many GN alums, including Félicia Atkinson, Algiers, Arp, and Jefre Cantu-Ledesma, to name a few — plus a selection of artists making their label debut! I can’t tell you the last time I listened to an album with 21 tracks, but here I am jamming this one hard. There are a lot of sounds and crunchy vibes to go around, but it all coheres into a seamless 90 minute mix of dark, murky jams that sounds especially cozy as the crisp, Pumpkin Spice-infused fall weather starts to envelop us all.

In case you were needing an extra incentive on this, you can rest assured that hard earned coin will be going towards a worthy cause. Proceeds benefit youthSpark, “an Atlanta-based non-profit that works directly with and protects at-risk youth from exploitation, abuse, and trafficking in the Southeastern United States.” It’s always good to support these non-profits, but to get some great Halloween jams while you’re at it? Count me in, baby!

The release date is today, October 4, so head to the Geographic North Bandcamp NOW and get your order in. The comp is available in cassette and digital formats, the latter of which you can stream below:
