Psychedelic dreampop group Death and Vanilla, returns with their second release for Kalligrammofon, a 2 x vinyl-LP edition of Vampyr, a live recording capturing a semi-improvised performance made during the screening of Carl Theodor Dreyers classic horror movie Vampyr (1932) at Fantastisk Filmfestival in Lund 2012.09.23..
[iTypically a duo, this particular recording finds the group fleshed out to a quintet with organs, glockenspiel, vibraphonette, moog, samples, bass, guitar and zither. The album is slow to unfurl and carefully executed, brilliantly evoking it’s grim subject matter and ominous tone.[/i]
Originally released as a cassette on Moon Glyph in 2013, Kalligrammofon is proud to present Vampyr in a REMASTERED and EXPANDED edition featuring 9 minutes of previously unreleased rehearsal recordings.
The album is limited to 499 copies on bloodred vinyl and comes with a 630x630 mm foldout poster artwork by Amanda de Frumerie.
