Black Francis, Golem 2 LP Set

Prolific Pixies' frontman Black Francis composed a soundtrack to The Golem for the 51st San Francisco International Film Festival in 2008. Originally only 500 copies were released as a 5xCD set comprising the live performance, studio recordings, and DVD. Later on a stripped down one-hour 'rock opera' was released on a single disc but now, The Golem is finally here and truly alive - on a double vinyl LP. The Golem is a 1920's silent film version of a popular story set in a 16th-century Jewish ghetto. "Black Francis sounds fully energized here, and this album ranks, alongside Teenager of the Year and Dog in the Sand, as part of his best solo work to date. . .the album contains more than a few moments of sinister magic to delight longtime fans." -Tiny Mix Tapes "This golem doesn't lumber and skulk so much as swagger and be-bop and damn near line-dance." -Pitchfork
