Hey folks, we have one new release from Death Waltz Originals and two new distributed titles for you this week. As always, new releases go live at 12PM CST on Wednesdays via mondotees.com.
Pentagram Home Video - Who's Out There. Strictly limited edition of 400 copies pressed on Transparent Purple with Black Marble effect with Grey color in color 180g vinyl. Housed inside a 425gsm single pocket jacket. Art by We Buy Your Kids. On sale Wednesday (4/13) at 12PM CST. $20
Operating within the same realm as Pye Corner Audio, Pentagram Home Video's debut LP for Death Waltz Originals offers up a dystopian analog synth attack swathed in layers of distortion and heavy pounding drums. It works as an imaginary soundtrack in your headphones but also as a powerful beast on more adventurous dance floors. We have been pretty obsessed with PHV since we heard them and are thrilled to be able to bring you their first vinyl release. The cover is by We Buy Your Kids who created the perfect minimalist design for this stark electronic music.
We're sure you're going to dig this release. Listen below:
Esterno Notte - Various. Released by Four Flies Records. Limited to 500 copies worldwide. On sale Wednesday (4/13) at 12PM CST. $35
A trip into unchartered Italian RCA film music vaults, including lots of unreleased gems from great Italian soundtrack maestros such as Alessandro Alessandroni, Giuliano Sorgini, Piero Umiliani, Alberto Baldan Bembo, Giovanni Tommaso, and many more.
As an uninterrupted flow of lost soundtracks from the most subversive and psychedelic age of Italian cinema, Esterno Notte evokes, above all, the night time cityscape settings of Italian movies of the 70s (thriller, horror, erotic, comedy, noir, and action). It captures that spirit and its musical core with a captivating concentration of funk, jazz-funk, deep breaks, prog and psych – all capable of seducing even today’s dance floors.
Esterno Giorno - Various. Released by Four Flies Records. Limited to 500 copies worldwide. On sale Wednesday (4/13) at 12PM CST. $35
Chapter two of a compilation project centered around and inside the secret archives of RCA’s glorious soundtrack catalogue – full of unreleased tracks from great Italian soundtrack Maestros such as Gianfranco Reverberi, Armando Trovajoli, Piero Piccioni, Paolo Ormi, Nico Fidenco, and many more.
Light and joyful music made for 60s and 70s Italian cinema. Presented here is an explosive mixture of jazz, blues, funk, psychedelia, and spicy exotica, composed for a wide range of movies, from thrillers to sexy comedies, from TV sci-fi to superhero films. Absolutely killer.
