MORRICONE YOUTH have been a solid fixture of the NYC music/film scene since forming in 1999, and have composed/re-interpreted and performed over 100 soundtracks live to film screenings.
Beginning a series of vinyl releases by the band, NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD is a superb re-score featuring original compositions by the band (led by DEVON LEVINS, host of WFMUs long-running soundtrack show 'Morricone Island') which range from eerie synth/guitar cues to full-on bangers that recall Fantomas in 'Director's Cut' mode. The album also features a couple of gnarly, synthed-up versions of iconic cues from the original library soundtrack.
To celebrate this release, Ondes Positives' artist Scott Johannsson has created a unique, one-off gatefold sleeve housing a test pressing of the album, featuring hand-cut window panes, 3D lettering, hand-painted effects and elements of the original sleeve art. The first 25 orders received will be entered into a lottery to win this artist edition to go alongside their standard LP.
** UPDATE: This lottery has now ended/test pressing has been claimed **
