POLICENAUTS - Original Video Game Soundtrack 2XLP.
Distributed by Data Discs. Pressed on 180 Gram White vinyl. Also available on 180 Gram Black vinyl. Note: This item is a pre-order. All orders containing this item will not ship until the End of September 2018. $30

Released in partnership with KONAMI, this newly re-mastered edition of POLICENAUTS is presented as a double LP with an accompanying 12-page art booklet and lithographic print, featuring original illustrations drawn from the archives.

Originally released in 1994, the game never saw an official release outside of Japan. Despite this, POLICENAUTS has since garnered a cult following, not least for its astonishing soundtrack by Konami Kukeiha Club. Throughout its 70-minute duration, POLICENAUTS blends together themes inspired by '80s buddy cop movies, crime noir and hard science-fiction, complete with John Carpenter-esque synths, piano ballads, infectious rhythm sections and downbeat smoky brass lines reminiscent of Angelo Badalamenti in TWIN PEAKS mode. POLICENAUTS is a varied and unique soundtrack, but one that ingeniously manages to bring together its ostensibly disparate parts into a cohesive and beguilingly atmospheric whole.
