Mondo To Debut ‘Over The Garden Wall’ Soundtrack Vinyl At San Diego Comic Con [SDCC 2016]
Cartoon Network's Over The Garden Wall raised the bar and set a new standard of what can be achieved in children's animation with its thoughtfully endearing and endlessly charming story about two brothers lost a magical land filled with monsters talking birds and pumpkin men.
One of the best things about Over The Garden Wall was its soundtrack and score which captured the mood of the story perfectly and provided original numbers such as "Potatoes & Molasses" which remain some of the most memorable sequences from the series. Fans wondering if an official release would eventually come can now wait no longer as Mondo will be releasing a special edition of the soundtrack on vinyl, debuting later this month at San Diego Comic Con.
Announced today via The AV Club, the release features 32 tracks (songs and score) from throughout the series and comes with a host of extras including a 20-page booklet featuring lyrics to every song and sheet music so you can learn to play the songs from the show yourself.
Like most Mondo releases, it looks absolutely beautiful with a cover by Sam Wolfe Connelly, which features the brothers Wirt and Gret and captures the mood of the series in a single image. The album comes on pressed 180-gram vinyl that is described as "Harvest Festival" colored, referencing the episode "Hard Times at the Huskin' Bee" where the brothers encounter the community of pumpkin men.
The release will initially be available at Mondo's booth at SDCC (#835). It will then be offered as webstore exclusive in August via Mondotees.com and select retailers.
