I'm sorry to say that this is my favourite movie of all time. Howard Shore's soundtrack to the first edition in the Rings trilogy captures both the overcast darkness and total tweedom of Tolkein's novels. Since director Peter Jackson loves his extended versions and drawn out releases, why not release an OST this heaving with content?
Howard Shore is a man of many movie soundtracks: this is what he did to accompany David Cronenberg’s Dead Ringers. As with anything Cronenberg, there is an underlying strangeness to this score: it sounds lush and beautiful, but has a really sinister undertow nagging at the listener’s ears throughout. 180g vinyl with original artwork on the sleeve.
Howard Shore has played his part in bringing a huge number of big ticket movies to the screen: almost 100 films feature a Shore score. For The Departed, Howard moved away from his usual all-orchestral approach, instead integrating a guitar quartet (including Sharon Isbin and Marc Ribot), with great effect. The Departed is released on vinyl by Silva Screen.
Howard Shore has played his part in bringing a huge number of big ticket movies to the screen: almost 100 films feature a Shore score. For A History Of Violence, Howard matches the uneasy mystery of the story with creeping and subtle orchestral arrangements that shimmer with mistrust. Vinyl release on Silva Screen.

Howard Shore is responsible for scoring all but one of David Cronenberg’s films, and Mondo have brought his Crash score back to wax as part of a trilogy of Shore/Cronenberg, It is a grating and metallic score that supports and deepens the dark themes of the film. Celebrating it’s 20th anniversary it’s the first time on vinyl.
Easy to forget that free jazz pioneer Ornette Coleman and movie soundtrack composer Howard Shore (he scored Lord of the Rings y’know) once collaborated, but they did: and on a William Burroughs adaptation too! The accompaniment to the famously disgusting Naked Lunch is presented here on vinyl for the first time ever, in brand new artwork, courtesy of Mondo.
The soundtrack to David Cronenberg’s psych-body-horror classic Scanners (yes, the one with the exploding head) paired with Cronenberg’s lesser known The Brood. Experienced film composer Howard Shore is the man behind the music, presented by Mondo on green splatter vinyl with excellent brand new artwork.
