RIYL: Broadcast, Stereolab, The United States of America, soft cushions and heavy blankets
Label: Fire Records
Whaaat? Hold up, is this for real? ¬†Fire Records has somehow managed to get ahold of the rights to Death and Vanilla‘s previous studio-works¬†ūüėÄ ¬†After the huge success with¬†the critically acclaimed and¬†absolutely stunning¬†“To Where the Wild Things Are” last year, the UK-label¬†is now reissuing not only their 2012 S/T debut LP, but also their first¬†10″ EP (2010) and the “From Above” 7″ (2013).
Needless to say I’m a big fan of this band, which delivers some of the best dreamy experimental kraut/psych-pop on the planet and beyond. I urge you to dive deep into the Swedish-based group’s own blend¬†(rightfully self-branded as kraut-lullabies), it’s a most¬†rewarding routine!¬†Their latest effort “To Where The Wild Things Are”¬†is probably the album I’ve spent the most time with since it came out last year, and it still keeps taking me to places I have yet to discover. Floating¬†close¬†to¬†the footsteps¬†of Stereolab and Broadcast (and¬†also¬†The United States of America), their dreamy moods are predictable, yet¬†their arrangements/compositions¬†brings forth¬†challenge¬†in the best way possible. Still soothing at that!
The two previous pressings of their debut-album is selling at 100$+, so here’s your shot at owning one without trading your soul or selling ur body. I say jump on it!
*The Death and Vanilla¬†LP reissue is limited to 1000 copies on Yellow Vinyl,¬†available via the “Buy-Now”-button. ¬† Stream a few videos¬†underneath
Following the release of last year‚Äôs critically acclaimed ‚ÄėTo Where The Wild Things Are‚Äô, Death And Vanilla revisit earlier releases with a number of reissues including ‚ÄėEP‚Äô and 7‚ÄĚ ‚ÄėFrom Above‚Äô out in May.
Looking back at their formative years, their sophisticated retro-futuristic psych-pop was being honed whilst channeling their passion for hauntology, library, krautrock and radiophonic music.
Fire Records release 'Death And Vanilla' on yellow vinyl, EP and 'From Above' 7" will be available on blue vinyl. Album and EP will also be available on CD.
