Take a holiday from “music of the season,” for on this edition of New Sounds, John presents an hour of musical ghost stories, portraits of vampires, and spiritual encounters. There’s music from Gary Lucas’ uncanny score for the silent film “The Golem”, “The Vampire’s Ball”, an eerie song by Iva Bittova, and Phil Kline’s “Premonition”, a work for 25 boombox tape players. Plus, hear Byrne and Eno’s “The Jezebel Spirit”, and more ghoulish fare.
