I’m not one to post trailers, but this merits an exception because 1.) its a fucking amazingly stylish trailer and 2.) the soundtrack is killer and out on vinyl from one of my favorite fresh labels Death Waltz.
Founded by Spencer Hickman, manager of Rough Trade East in London, Death Waltz started last year as a high end label exclusively releasing cult classic soundtracks. Each album consists of the highest quality color vinyl, packaging, with subscription only collectors versions as well. Each release features bad ass original art work inspired by the film, with a heavy stock poster, and extensive liner notes, photos, and directors/composers comments.
So far the cult classic movie list includes: Zombie 2, Let the Right One In, Donnie Darko (original OST not the 80s pop soundtrack), Prince of Darkness, The Living Dead at Manchester Morgue, The Devil’s Business, Escape from New York, Halloween II, Halloween III, and They Live.
As you can see mostly 70s/80s classics, a lot of John Carpenter & Alan Howarth, with a few more contemporary selections. The Devil’s Business was a low budget independent film released last year, and if you’re wondering what it’s doing on this list, you haven’t seen the highly underrated film.
The lastest batch of releases came on RSD, including the crowning gem, Yellow from composer Antoni Maiovvi. Yellow is a low budget crowd source funded short horror film directed by Neo-Giallo that’s been receiving much acclaim and visibility at numerous film festivals; it debuted last August at Film4 Frightfest.
I haven’t even seen the film yet (desperately eager), but I can tell you I just received my Death Waltz vinyl today and the soundtrack sounds superb with looks that could kill.
As of writing this, there are exactly 8 copies left of Yellow on Ltd to 1000 blood splattered translucent yellow vinyl. This was a RSD release, so there was a very limited amount of copies put up for sale online afterward. Grab Yellow from Death Waltz before its gone.
Next up in June from Death Waltz…The Fog !!!
Goddamn I love this label.
