Magenta coloured vinyl LP, includes DL card. "Recalling the eerie, haunted ambience of Angelo Badalamenti/Julee Cruise's Twin Peaks soundtrack, Stereolab/Broadcast's experimental vision of 0s lounge muzak/exotica and French 0s pop, or the narcotic country-noir of Mazzy Star." The Guardian.

Following on from the deluxe reissue 'Vampyr' last year, comes Death And Vanilla's unreleased live score of 'The Tenant'.

Originally scored by Philippe Sarde, this release sees Death And Vanilla reimagine the film's soundtrack four decades on for a new audience.

The haunting instrumental is a foreboding piece of dark and cinematic avant-garde music that's alienated, lonely and melancholic.

Moments of hallucination and delusion mirror the lead character Trelovsky. Recorded in 2015 at Cinemascore festival in Spain alongside a two-hour performance and screening of psychological thriller 'The Tenant' (1976).

The recording features them as a trio - Marleen Nilsson (Farfisa Compact), Anders Hansson (Hagstrom Kent, Roland SP-404 and Technics SL-1200) and Magnus Bodin (Moog Prodigy and Musser M55).
