Though the band and song name might lead you to think The Marshmallow Ghosts and their new single “Shrieks” 7-inch belong to the widening swath of goth recorded on a laptop mic, they are in fact the result of a special Halloween side project of members of Black Moth Super Rainbow, the Appleseed Cast, Casket Girls, and Dreamend. The limited and handnumbered single will come as a horrifying swirly picture disk sheathed in a glow in the dark sleeve of madness created by Stoughton (check it out after the jump). The music itself sounds almost identical to the record the neighbor played when we were kids that challenged our will for Reesies and bubblegum. She invariably handed out apples. Screw that lady. the “Shrieks” single, with b-side “Creaks,” will be out on October 20th, but seeing as how the 96 special pre-orders are already sold out, we recommend you hop on the broom and get over to Gravesend. By the way, what’s everyone gonna be for Halloween? Can’t go as Lagerfeld or Captain Craps-His-Pants again, need ideas.
