Journalist turned producer Chris Alexander is something of a hive-mind of information when it comes to obscure horror film music, so it's perhaps unsurprising that his new album sounds like a pitch-perfect tribute to synthesizer-heavy, Italian "Giallo" soundtracks, and the horror-disco style perfected by John Carpenter. It's made up of tracks Alexander wrote and released - usually via obscure, CD-R only labels - over the last decade. More importantly, Murder Music is actually rather good, with Alexander offering a perfect balance between clandestine synthesizer motifs, panicked beats, clanking industrial textures, hypnotic guitar lines, and chords that seem to creep up from behind.
