Three years ago, Dayve Hawk graced us with a minimix called Walk Me Home, a “love letter to the art of horror movie scoring.” He’s back again with a 14-minute sequel that delivers more eerie synthesizer progressions designed to spook all the kiddies when they pay us a visit on Wednesday. It also arrives at […]
