"‘Tis the season to be spooky. And if you’re looking for a way to get into the Halloween spirit while enjoying some great music, then Baltimore locals Skitzo Calypso have a treat for you. Collecting songs from their last six albums, thematically appropriate for the holiday, this talented ensemble present more than fifteen tracks which give you a great sampling of their discography. From “Modern Day Travesty,” taken from 2004’s The Shattering, to “The Tortured and the Hare” off their latest release, the 2018 EP entitled A.L.I.C.E., this is one tasty morsel that can be enjoyed again and again." - Barry Adkins/Target Audience Magazine
“The Haunted Collection by Skitzo Calypso is an 18-song collection that will suck you in with the first track, Vampyres, a hauntingly beautiful ballad that then leads you to Dead World which picks up the pace, while Broken Part of You crawls into your soul. Until My Heart Stops Beating picks up the pace again with a cry to keep fighting, while The Haunted picks it up with a frenetic pace. Twilight on the Runway changes pace a bit searching for your heart when no one can see you. The Gift serves as a reminder of how we can lose ourselves, leaving those we love behind. Things pick up speed as they then take you on a race to End of the World. Fade (Dark Days) ponders how we fade in the memories of yesterday. The Things I Could Never Change reminds us there are things we can never change as they are part of who we are. Monroe (She Put a Spell on Me) does just that. To Die Like Morrison finds salvation in the unlikeliest of places, and Bones of Jessica screams at you with a need for finding closure while A Night in Hell & A Sunday Morning is a bit of a party anthem, harkening back to younger days. Skull to Fist brings you rushing back to today as you fight to find your way. Eulogy of Me slows things down calling for you to wake up before life passes you by. The Tortured & The Hare cries out for you to wake up before the world crashes down and Modern Day Travesty drags you in with a heavy bass reminding you that you are alive in dreams. The Haunted Collection by Skitzo Calypso will take you on a haunting journey that touches your heart and soul with excitement, longing and the hope of leaving a legacy behind. You don’t want to miss this collection of both new and remastered tracks from this timeless band.” - The Twisted Hour Radio Show/WBUZ95.com Internet Radio
XIXA cull from various strains of Latin music, from Chicha (psychedelic cumbia from Peru) to Tejano, infusing their "mystic desert rock" with a distinct sense of brooding. Bandcamp Album of the Day Feb 17, 2021
