If you happen to be a lover of films, and also understand German, you might also be interested in this podcast . Nevertheless, here is the latest single by Californian duo Chestnut which includes the two eponymous songs 'The Winter We Were Vampires' and 'The Original Wolf Man'. And if you are acquainted with the early horror film genre, you might have already watched at least one of these pioneer works. (By the way, it might be possible that those films don't even exist - my research hasn't led to any proof. There are samples on the songs, but still I cannot tell for sure.)
