After a seven-year hiatus, Danny Wolfers’ (a.k.a. Legowelt) cult ambient alias Smackos will return with a new album, called A Vampire Goes West.

Released on Wolfers’ own Nightwind Records label, A Vampire Goes West is described by the imprint as an “amateur space jazz meets professional ambient” experience that clocks in at almost 80 minutes.

The LP was recorded in “complete seclusion” over the course of last Christmas and through the early days of the new year in his home studio on the Netherlands’ North Sea coast.
