Death Waltz release the soundtrack to the 'Iranian vampire western' and we have a copy up for grabs!

Without a doubt, director Ana Lily Amirpour's "Iranian vampire western" A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night is going to be remembered as one of the most singular cinematic experiences of the year, and you'll be able to read a review on the Quietus very soon. What is also indisputable is that it has a magnificent soundtrack, handpicked by the director herself and which is being released on limited edition vinyl by those paragons of the occluded, culty and weird, the Death Waltz Recording Company, who say: "The eclectic nature of the soundtrack is immediately noticeable - with the traditional accordion and Iranian crooning of Kiosk's 'Charkesh E Pooch' a clear opposite of Radio Tehran's punky and irreverent 'Tatilat'. White Lies' 'Death' gives off a new wave melodic vibe, while Farah's ambient 'Dancing Girls' does its best to seduce you with its spoken word vocals. Both creepy and eerie and fun and energetic with its mixing of traditional and alternative musical genres, A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night is an instant classic."
