The Listening Booth: Hallowe'en

Welcome to The Listening Booth, a regular series of posts that features a guest musician, DJ or music devotee sharing their current three favourite songs with automatism readers. Today's Listening Booth is hosted by the brilliantly talented and lovely DJ Rachel Thera. Enjoy.


About Rachel
Hailing from Ottawa, Canada, Rachel DJs around town under her creative nom de plume, Lamb Rabbit. Last year she founded a lady-DJ collective called The Girlfriends. This year she plans to master the guitar and start a soft psych band. Next year she plans on subsisting exclusively off of fancy grilled cheese sandwiches. 

You can find some of Rachel's mixes here

Rachel's Three Picks

As glorious as Halloween cheese can be, I opted to go the exact opposite direction: these tracks are about as introspective as Halloween gets. Slow and atmospheric, these are eerie—if slightly less conventional—beauties. Shut yourself in your bedroom, light a few candles and host a séance. It's just you and the spirits.
