Popol Vuh – Nosferatu The Vampyre 2xLP

For those of you who don’t wake and sleep according to the release schedule of colored vinyl soundtrack reissues, you may have missed this one: Waxwork Records have conjured up an official version of Popol Vuh’s masterful scoring of Werner Herzog’s Nosferatu The Vampyre. We managed to score a copy at Mondocon, and can attest to the quality of the packaging and the pressing: a gorgeous, tip-on style gatefold jacket adorned with ethereal, gothic artwork from the incomparable Jessica Seamans. Pick it up at waxworkrecords.com.

Baldruin – Portal LP

With the longest song clocking it at barely over 4 minutes, Portal presents a concise album of drone-inspired electronic pieces from Baldruin. Considering that the limited edition LP is being offered in a scant edition of 260 pieces, well, we wouldn’t necessarily sit around on this one if you are digging on it: woundedknife.bandcamp.com.


Moufang / Czamanski – Live In Seattle LP

David Moufang (Move D) occasionally works with Juju & Jordach under the name Magic Mountain High. That’s cool. Apparently only one half of Juju & Jordach made it out to play this event in Seattle, however, so it is simply being billed as Moufang / Czamanski. No complaints here, we look forward to new sounds from any of the aforementioned gentleman, and the more of them you can get in a room together, the better. Hats off to Further Records for documenting the event and pressing it onto vinyl for the rest of us to enjoy: Live In Seattle is available for pre-order from furtherrecords.org.
