Side A: Bonfires (2016)
Tracks 1-8

"Garden Gate presents a collection of instrumental pieces to accompany your All Hallows' Eve activities, be they trick-or-treating, gingerly sipping a pumpkin spiced latte as you gaze wistfully at the changing leaves, lighting candles for the dead, or clutching a gnarled stang and panting under your mask as you push through the liminal into other worlds.

Blending soap opera, folk horror soundtracks, psychedelia, and classical and ranging from the garish to the poignant, we hope you'll find something here to round out your Hallowe'en mix tape or augment your Samhain rites as the veil thins and we celebrate our favorite holiday."
