A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night CD

NOTE: THIS IS THE CD VERSION OF THE ALBUM

Death Waltz Recording Company is very proud to release what is sure to be the standout soundtrack of 2015. From director Ana Lily Amirpour and Executive Producer Elijah Wood, A GIRL WALKS HOME ALONE AT NIGHT is a Western vampire noir set in a small Iranian town. This unusual movie has an effortlessly cool soundtrack featuring music from artists such as Kiosk, Radio Tehran, and Federale. With no solo composer at the helm providing a score, the sound of the film has instead been curated by Amirpour herself, with a variety of tracks selected to supply a unique atmosphere, recalling less traditional vampire films such as NEAR DARK and ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE.

Despite not being scored, the music selected by the director nevertheless bears heavy influence from the film music world, particularly the electronically ethereal work of Tangerine Dream, and the inescapable Western sounds of Ennio Morricone. The eclectic nature of the soundtrack is immediately noticeable – with the traditional accordion and Iranian crooning of Kiosk's 'Charkesh E Pooch' providing a foil to Radio Tehran's punky and irreverent 'Tatilat'. White Lies' 'Death' gives off a new wave melodic vibe, while Farah's ambient 'Dancing Girls' strives to seduce you with its spoken word vocals. Somehow creepy, eerie, fun, and energetic all at once, with its mixing of traditional and alternative musical genres, A GIRL WALKS HOME ALONE AT NIGHT is an instant classic.

This CD is housed in a Gatefold Digipak.
