Bacao Rhythm & Steel Band – Stranger Things Theme (7″ Pumpkin Orange Vinyl) [Big Crown Records BCR170]
Bacao Rhythm & Steel Band comes in heavy with a two-sider for the Halloween season that is sure to get the masquerade ball moving. Pressed on pumpkin orange colour vinyl.
Side A is their cover of “Stranger Things Theme” where they play the top line on steel pans with echoed-out guitar chanks and sound effects that haunt the track. This is the second time they have taken on a popular TV theme song and both times they knocked it out of the park. They manage to keep the eerie vibe but their cover takes on a more hypnotizing tone than the original.
On side B they take on a tried and true October 31st classic…John Carpenter’s iconic “Halloween Theme” and they do it up in a disco four on the floor style that is guaranteed to get spins at Halloween parties from now til infinity.
These should get the ghouls and the ghosts off their seats.
