Editorial Reviews

Product Description

"Polka Haunt Us - A Spook-tacular Compilation" is based on authentic ghostly folk tales from around the world, lyrics written by the project's Executive Producer, Veronique Chevalier. Less a novelty project and more an experiment in ethnomusicology, the album is reminiscent of Harry Smith's Folkways recordings for the Smithsonian Trust, or the compilation "Songs from the Neighborhood: The Music of Fred Rogers" with a Nick Cave "Murder Ballads" twist.

Review

"Polka Haunt Us is meant as a foray into the untried history of its namesake. Every day is Halloween to Chevalier, putting a darkly amusing, supernatural twist on the traditionally happy music of Oktoberfest.

Chevalier's own 2007 "Vampire Surprise" is the bonus track on the album, which is compounded by a myriad of respected artists singing this traditional Central European fare.

You can listen to polka favorites like "Beer Hall in Hell":

In Hell the beer is flat You'll soon get used to that
No bubbles in your glass Just passing sulfur gas
In Hell it's quite a brew that they will serve to you
It's made in giant vats with warts and wings of bats

and "After Wife Polka Tango":

Nicely-done funerals cost quite a sum
The least you could've done is given me one
But you kept cutting corners after I died
So now you are facing your undead cut-rate bride

Awesome."
