RIYL: Broadcast, Stereolab, The United States of America, soft cushions and heavy blankets
Label: Fire Records
Whaaat? Hold up, is this for real? Â Fire Records has somehow managed to get ahold of the rights to Death and Vanilla‘s previous studio-worksÂ đ Â After the huge success withÂ the critically acclaimed andÂ absolutely stunningÂ “To Where the Wild Things Are” last year, the UK-labelÂ is now reissuing not only their 2012 S/T debut LP, but also their firstÂ 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 blendÂ (rightfully self-branded as kraut-lullabies), it’s a mostÂ rewarding routine!Â Their latest effort “To Where The Wild Things Are”Â 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. FloatingÂ closeÂ toÂ the footstepsÂ of Stereolab and Broadcast (andÂ alsoÂ The United States of America), their dreamy moods are predictable, yetÂ their arrangements/compositionsÂ brings forthÂ challengeÂ 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 VanillaÂ LP reissue is limited to 1000 copies on Yellow Vinyl,Â available via the “Buy-Now”-button. Â Stream a few videosÂ underneath
Following the release of last yearâs critically acclaimed âTo Where The Wild Things Areâ, Death And Vanilla revisit earlier releases with a number of reissues including âEPâ and 7â âFrom Aboveâ 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.
