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.
Typically 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.
Originally released as a cassette on Moon Glyph in 2013, Kalligrammofon is proud to present Vampyr in a re-mastered 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.
