Title: The Blackcoat's Daughter (Original Soundtrack)
Product Type: VINYL LP

Vinyl LP pressing including digital download. Originally titled February, Osgood Perkins' debut film was a festival hit in 2015 and has now been picked up for wider distribution by A24 under a new title, The Blackcoat's Daughter. The film is a bleakly desolate slow burn, harkening back to such classics as Rosemary's Baby and Let's Scare Jessica To Death with it's brooding atmosphere and emphasis on perpetual unease and dread rather than jump scares. It's a remarkable debut, signaling the arrival of a real talent. The soundtrack was written by Elvis Perkins (Osgood's younger brother, who released the critically acclaimed albums Ash Wednesday and Dearland). Here he has created a dark eerie masterpiece that fuses classic 1970s horror soundtrack tropes with his traditional folk roots and jazz infused inflections of Angelo Badalamenti. Forgoing synth work for traditional instruments and an experimental atonal vibe, it's beguiling, otherworldly, and not of it's time, which is exactly why it sounds so vital right now. This soundtrack is a rare beast indeed, uninterested in instant gratification and providing an easy one shot listen; this is a score to be savored and poured over many times.
