Halloween is the best time of year, so why not theme a band around it. The Marshmallow Ghosts strike the perfect tone without cliche or straining to be morbid. Their style is, in fact, the opposite: energetic and poppy, capturing more the excitement of fall than a chainsaw massacre. It’s a project of Ryan Graveface, owner of Graveface Records and Black Moth Super Rainbow member, which pulls talent from the rest of the label’s bands. The past four years they’ve put out an album for Halloween, with a Dreamend (another Ryan Graveface venture) split due this October.
