The original Blood Beach was a 1980 horror movie in which a monster lurking under Venice Beach shredded sunbathers to death. If it had benefited from production value, the soundtrack would have sounded like the band of the same name. Blood Beach's theremin suggests the creature prowling beneath the summery surf of the lyrics, but the melodies also tend toward The Twilight Zone—just ominous enough that you can't relax, but too much fuzzy reverb to not be completely enjoyable. Haunted Horses are another band that make you feel like something terrifying is imminent. The Seattle duo stared post-modernity in the face and it scared the shit out of them, so they set it to music: a noisy, fractured bundle of dark guitar melodies and vocals straight out of a nuthouse corridor. But it's the furious drums that tie it together and propel us along to our self-made demise. REBECCA WILSON
