Retro Promenade’s ‘Carpenter’ Mix Honors The Master Of Horror With Synth Success

As much as I adore John Carpenter‘s Lost Themes album that was released earlier this year, I craved more. I’ve been in a huge ‘eerie synth’ mood for awhile now, having seen films such as The Guest and It Follows, and listening to lots of Perturbator.

If you’re anything like me, a new mixtape that just hit the net this week will satiate your ’80s synth-loving appetite.

Click through and decide for yourself, but I’m definitely a bit more sold on the flick now.

The Thing hits theaters October 14.

James Shotwell is the founder
