Today’s Halloween track is Mike Rimbaud’s Midnight in America. It’s a slinky, vamping, funk-tinged psychedelic broadside that throws an appreciative not back at Gil Scott-Heron. “Nuclear codes for the game-show host, got his middle finger on the trigger…no protest, no privacy, wake up America!” The reference to that famously satanic Stones riff couldn’t be more spot-on.
