Hot on the heels of their much adored 'To Where The Wild Things Are' album, Death and Vanilla have given us another treat in the form of this limited edition 12" EP. It contains two songs from the album and two previously unreleased tracks which showcase perfectly their vintage retro-futurist sound which has drawn comparisons with Broadcast and Stereolab. Limited to 1000. On green vinyl.
8/10 Clinton Staff review, 25 August 2015
You know you've really made it as a band when you get discussed by suburbanites over the garden fence but Death and Vanilla was the subject my brothers neighbour wanted to discuss with him last week. Their drifty, dreamy sound has been line caught for anyone who misses Broadcast so bad their ears hurt. Unlike lots of music around these days this won't hurt your ears. It's soft and feathery - like curling yourself up in a duvet or lying in a heap of mashed potato. The first two tracks are off their recent 'To Where The Wild Things Are' and are as soft and retro-futurist twinkly as you remember.
Overleaf you get two brand new tracks of a much more experimental nature. Both recall the sound sorcery last seen in Broadcast's collaboration with The Focus Group. Being a pop guy, this isn't the side of death and Vanilla I most like but closer 'Reality From Dream' is a very worthwhile effort with all the dreamy insouciance of that sole United States of America album. It's completely disconcerting and makes me think that you could snooker them completely if you took their delay pedal off them.
Comes on lovely translucent green vinyl.
