The Van Pelt present Tramonto, a live album recorded during their European tour for their third album Imaginary Third (2014). While only active for a matter of years, The Van Pelt have grown into something of a cult favorite since they originally formed in mid '90s and disbanded in 1997. And rightly so - even in that short period of time their music evolved considerably from the charged, proselytizing punk of their debut album Stealing From Our Favourite Thieves (1996) to the quiet, creeping, minimal music of sophomore release Sultans of Sentiment (1997). Recorded on the first date of said tour, a private gig for friends in Ferrara, Italy, Tramonto came about not as a grandiose, self-congratulatory effort, nor a between-albums stop-gap, as is the case with so many live albums. Instead, this was as an opportune moment to capture and document a new chapter in the band's history - those original songs filtered through an older, wiser Van Pelt. Comes housed in a gatefold jacket and includes a download code.
