Do you have any songs, albums, ost's or playlists you circle through for this jam or when you need to get into this spooky mindset? Share with each other! Maybe one of the songs can help with your jam ideas! 

I was listening to Lemon Demon's Spirit Phone while brainstorming some possible jam ideas! https://lemondemon.bandcamp.com/album/spirit-phone

I love Spirit Phone! That's an awesome source for cryptid-themed inspiration.

For a spooky, inspired mindset I've personally been listening to the soundtrack from Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency... It has a weird, creepy, chaotic vibe I can't quite explain... The full album is not out yet (and unfortunately may never be released) so all that exists is this 16min sampler. The rapid switching between the tracks can be a bit obnoxious, but I feel like it also adds to that chaotic vibe that inspires me so much...

Also there's something absolutely horrifying to me about this track from Annihilation. Perfect for conjuring images of strange creatures lurking in the dark!
