Trust Obey
Fear & Bullets (The Crow Comic Accompaniment in conjunction with James O' Barr)

Back in 1994 John Bergin (Trust Obey) hooked up James O’Barr. For those who don’t know, O’Barr is author of acclaimed comic book series The Crow, and his collaboration with Bergin spawned a musical companion piece to the book entitled Fear & Bullets. This 25th anniversary edition of Fear & Bullets features tracks from both the 1994 and 1998 versions of the LP as well as some previously-unreleased demos. O’Barr completists will be tempted by the poster that depicts O’Barr’s first-ever drawing of Crow. Musically it’s very of-the-time - Nine Inch Nails were clearly a huge influence on Bergin back then.

Piero Piccioni
3 Notti D'Amore (Original Soundtrack)

Not only do Italians know how to create lush film scores on the themes of love, lust and murder, they know how to live the art too! During the 1950s, Piero Piccioni was a prime suspect in the murder of a young girl, Wilma Montesi. It was the first court case to lift the lid and take a peek at the corruption, wealth and sex at the top of Italian society and the public lapped up the tabloid headlines and paparazzi pictures. Piccioni was cleared of all charges and the case remains unsolved. You can hear it all here in Piccioni's 1964 soundtrack, 3 Notti d'Amore. Moving from sensuous sax and relaxed rhythms to tense strings and jumpy horns. It goes through the emotions like only an Italian could. 

Elmer Bernstein
Ghostbusters (Original Motion Picture Score)

When there’s something weird, blah blah blah, Bill Murray … Norman Records! Thirty-five years have passed since the release of the iconic movie Ghostbusters, it’s been well over a decade since the film’s OST was put out on any physical format, and the franchise has been rebooted in recent times. As such, the time feels right for someone to give Elmer Bernstein’s Ghostbusters score a new pressing. On this latest edition Sony Classical chuck in a few bonus tracks, new artwork and some liner notes penned Bernstein’s son Peter. The theme song is in there as well, obviously.

Christophe Beck
Ant-Man & The Wasp (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Just as those Marvel Cinematic Universe blockbusters keep packing out the cinemas, so too do the movie soundtrack releases keep rolling through record store doors. Ant-Man & The Wasp was soundtracked by Christophe Beck, who has really packed his music with rich layers of life. Two vinyl LPs of superhero sound, from Mondo.

Klaus Schulze
Next of Kin

The deep library that is Klaus Schulze’s catalogue grows a little larger with this release, which answers the question that many Shulze-heads have asked over the years: did he create an original soundtrack to the 1982 film Next Of Kin? In fact he did, though the score was never used or heard… Until now! This thought-lost music has been brought back, remastered, and presented to us at last. Via The Roundtable.

Max Richter
Never Look Away (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Already binged your way through both Deutschland 83 and Deutschland 86? Then you might wish to try Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck’s 2018 flick Never Look Away, another masterpiece of contemporary cinema that sees Germany coming to terms with its past. It was was nominated for two Academy Awards you know. Max Richter did the score in his classic nicey-nicey cine-strings style, and his Never Look Away OST is what we have for you here.

Ian Hultquist
Assassination Nation (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Assassination Nation is a blackly comedic film that has made an impact, no doubt with some help from this fine score work. Ian Hultquist, he of Passion Pitt fame, provides the soundtrack, using his tasty synth collection to match the film’s vivid moods. This soundtrack release includes all of Hultquist’s cues and themes, as well as other songs featured in the film. On Lakeshore Records.

Jehnny Beth / Johnny Hostile
XY Chelsea (Original Soundtrack)

Here’s ones for fans of Chelsea Manning and / or Savages, being the soundtrack to a documentary on Chelsea Manning recorded by Savages singer Jehnny Beth and Savages producer Johnny Hostile. XY Chelsea is a nuanced suite of music that avoids some of the more obvious territory of film soundtracking. Released by Pop Noire.

Daniel Davies
Soeurs De Glisse (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Original score from Belgian documentary film Soeurs De Glisse. Both beautiful and tense, the music brilliantly reflects the film’s subject - two Belgian sisters, one visually-impaired, who competed at the South Korea Paralympic Games as skiers and brought home a medal. You may know Davies from his recent work with one John Carpenter, clearly he is a soundtracker to be reckoned with.

Glen Hansard & Marketa Irglova
Once - Music from the Motion Picture

Back in 2006, the Frames leader Glen Hansard starred as a grizzled street musician who stalked and preyed on a young Czech woman. Rather than calling the police, she fell for him and the remainder was a heartfelt Irish romantic musical drama. Now you can get all the music from the film which will leave you teary-eyed as proof that obsessive behaviour can sometimes pay dividends.

James Brown
Slaughters Big Rip-Off (Original Soundtrack)

The amount of huge artists from the funk/soul continuum who’ve soundtracked blaxploitation movies is just crazy. Curtis Mayfield, Isaac Hayes and Marvin Gaye are just three of the all-time greats that produced scores for films of the genre during its early-’70s heyday. Even the Godfather himself Mr. James Brown got in on the act, teaming up with on-off compositional partner Fred Wesley to produce a typically high-wire set of tunes for 1973 flick Slaughter’s Big Rip-Off. Out of print for a minute, Slaughter’s Big Rip-Off (OST) has now been reissued by Polydor.

Kyle Dixon & Michael Stein
Valley Of The Boom

Valley Of The Boom is a docudrama series about the ‘90s tech boom in Silicon Valley. It was shown of the National Geographic channel. The soundtrack was recorded by Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein, with each episode of the series having a different soundscape.

Ola Fløttum
Thelma

Death Waltz do what they do best and drop another film OST. This one consists of the tense, eerie orchestral pieces Ola Fløttum cooked up for 2017 flick Thelma. While things rarely rise above a medium-volume hum, the quietness of this score allows Fløttum to ratchet up tension in subtle yet potent ways. Anyone who’s a fan of the music from Let The Right One In or 2001: A Space Odyssey should check Thelma.

Here he soundtracks Denis first English language film High Life set for release this year. Though Staples goes alone there is a further treat for Tindersticks fans as the track Willow which closes the film is included here and credited as a full band effort.

James Brown
Black Caesar (Original Soundtrack)

Black Caesar was the James Brown’s first stab at a film soundtrack. A 1973 blaxploitation gangster film and funk sound like a pretty cool match. The soundtrack also includes tracks by The J.B.’s and Lyn Collins. Songs from this soundtrack have been sampled by Ice-T, Nas and Trick Daddy. 180g vinyl reissue on Polydor.

Chris Remo
Gone Home

Fifth anniversary vinyl edition of Chris Remo’s stunning soundtrack for 2013 video game Gone Home. Memorable even in the context of the demands of an immersive first-person exploration game, Remo’s score evoked mystery with its grandiose peaks and heart-stopping ambient sections, yet kept the player grounded in the game itself.

Theodore Shapiro
Destroyer (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

2018 flick Destroyer was scored by Theodore Shapiro, the composer who had also done the music for Blades Of Glory, Ghostbusters (the new one) and Marley & Me (mercifully the only one). Shapiro paints with watercolours here - many of the tracks feature a single fiddle bedding down in mists of strings, not unlike Ralph Vaughan Williams’ The Lark Ascending. The Mondo and Lakeshore labels have teamed up to issue the Destroyer OST, a pairing so right that it’s kind of surprising it didn’t happen sooner.

Arabrot
Die Nibelungen

Award winning noise/art rockers Arabrot are no strangers to doing live scores to silent films, but with Fritz Lang’s Die Nibelungen being 5 hours long, they certainly faced a new challenge. With members of Nurse With Wound, Current 93, and Gnod joining for the performance Arabrot managed to pull off an incredibly dynamic and deft piece to support the film. Here, highlights and certain movements have been collected to create a stand alone album.

Slava Tsukerman
Liquid Sky (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Liquid Sky is a super weird sci-fi flick from 1982 that has gained something of a cult following over the years. This is due in no small part to the fact that the film is seen as the year zero for electroclash, something that Slava Tsukerman’s soundtrack definitely has something to do with. Mind you, the music here is a damn sight stranger than your average Chicks On Speed tune. Tsukerman’s loping synth explorations here frequently cross over into coldwave, experimental electronics and early computer game soundtracks. Death Waltz feels like the right label to reissue the Liquid Sky score.

Popol Vuh
Aguirre

After 40 years, Popol Vuh’s 1972 soundtrack to Werner Herzog’s Aguirre, released originally in 1975, is available to the public again. This release of the hypnotic and engrossing soundtrack to that dystopian and intense film shows how good the music was: uplifting with an underlying sense of dread, but, thankfully, not as terrifying as Klaus Kinski. Also features a bonustrack.

Snowdrops
Manta Ray (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

As alumni of Yann Tiersen and Tindersticks, the duo of Mathieu Gabry and Christine Ott, working here as Snowdrops, are well prepared to make sweet soundtrack music for the film Manta Ray. They’ve got both an Ondes Martenot and a Mellotron, as well as an MS2000, so they are really something to be reckoned with. On Gizeh,

Nicholas Britell
If Beale Street Could Talk

Anyone who has seen Barry Jenkins' film If Beale Street Could Talk will inevitably mention the fabulous soundtrack by Nicholas Britell. Fluttering horns mimic fluttering hearts, blooming strings a love in bloom, a tender string note the delicate balance of a relationship walking the tightrope of growing up black in '70s America. Along with Britell's masterful work are fantastic period songs from the likes of Nina Simone, Miles Davis and John Coltrane.

Familiar themes rise and fall, surrounded by more modern orchestral drama. Double gatefold LP on heavyweight vinyl, out on Mondo.

Ron Grainer
Omega Man

Ron Grainer is surely best known for penning the Doctor Who main theme that Delia Derbyshire would so unforgettably arrange for the TV series. Hitherto confined to a Film Score Monthly CD release, his score for 1971 post-apocalyptic Charlton Heston flick The Omega Man is now waxtastic at last. Fabulous seventies-cinema orchestral funk.

Zammuto’s music here hits the sweet-spot of gorgeous synthetic ambiences that one finds in the screen work of Mogwai. There is an extra-tender, extra-fragile, Postal Service-y beauty to cuts such as ‘It Was My Grave’ that is very moving.

Werner Herzog and Popol Vuh had a wonderful and long-running creative relationship, Herzog’s curious cinematic visions matched with Popol Vuh’s exploratory (and consistently beautiful) instrumentals. Nosferatu actually contains two discs, with material that both soundtracked and was inspired by Herzog’s vampire picture. On spooky red and black transparent vinyl.

Riz Ortolani
House On The Edge Of The Park

House On The Edge Of The Park is a good old-fashioned proper nasty Italian horror flick from the 80’s, good enough to be worthy of being banned in several countries! The soundtrack to this bloody ride was assembled by Riz Ortolani, and it’s another great and characterful score from this studio maestro. Includes some proper disco. On Death Waltz

Gradius III was the Konami game series' first foray into 16-bit and it had a suitably futuristic soundtrack, released here for the first time on vinyl. Written by Konami Kukeiha Club, the soundtrack is jarring synths and spacey tinkles and it evokes the feeling of racing through space with your mates on a rainy Thursday afternoon.

Goblin
Phenomena

Waxwork Records love a bit of Goblin. Their latest reissue drawn from the archives of the legendary Italian film-score band features some of their most beloved work - the music for 1985’s Phenomena. Goblin head-honchos Claudio Simonetti and Fabio Pignatelli pulled out all the stops for this one. Across this expansive record we get John Carpenter-esque machine music, blissful ambiences, library funk, lush synth-pop and everything in-between. This release is the first time that Simonetti and Pignatelli's Phenomena score has been presented in full on one record, and if that's not enough it also includes a load of bonus material. Nice!

Unusual Sounds

Since launching in 2014 the Mexican Summer reissues offshoot Anthology Recordings have unearthed some excellent old things from the likes of Pharaoh Sanders and The Nightcrawlers. For their latest trick they delve into the world of library music. The twenty tracks of Unusual Sounds are exactly the sort of cerebral oddities that we now expect as standard from these releases. Comes with liner notes from David Hollander - this is good because he’s curated an extensive history of library music that shares its title with this compilation and as such he’s rather knowledgeable on the subject.

Clint Mansell
Happy New Year, Colin Burstead (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Clint Mansell is now more well-known for being a composer of film scores rather than being in Pop Will Eat Itself, and perhaps that’s a good thing as he seems to be pretty good at his current career. He already has scores to Pi, Moon, High Rise and Black Mirror under his belt. His latest score is for Ben Wheatley’s new film, Happy New Year, Colin Burstead. It should match the film well as it starts off with a considered use of woodwinds and being hypnotic and ethereal in nature, before twisting into something much darker and unhinged.

Although it’s essentially about an animate piece of strawberry jam, the 1958 original gave me quite the nightmares as a child.

Hoenig went for something a little more sober than the original’s bouncy theme song, whose lyrics included: “Beware of the Blob - it creeps and leaps and glides and slides across the floor, right through the door…”. Hoenig chose wisely.

Jean-Pierre Mirouze
Le Mariage Collectif (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Jean-Pierre Mirouze’s soundtrack to 1971 French-Danish soft porn film Le Mariage Collectif was destined for the trash. We mean that literally - if the people at Born Bad hadn’t rescued the original acetate from a Paris dumpster back in 2010 then it’s likely that this music would have been lost. It’s a good thing they’ve put the score back on wax, because the music here is one of the more risque pieces of library jazz-funk you’re likely to hear in the near future. Also, any album with a track called ‘Sexopolis’ on it is going to be worth a listen.

The film is one of the last and best works of the Czech New Wave, and Lubos Fiser’s eerie music plays a crucial part in conjuring an atmosphere of surreal, folkish horror. His soundtrack is pitched somewhere between Bela Bartok, Bernard Herrmann and mid-century library music.

Hero (Music From The Original Soundtrack)

Fusing Chinese melodies with orchestral grandeur, Tan Dun is best understood as China’s John Williams.

Just like the movie, the soundtrack was so influential it almost seems cliche in hindsight. Out now on sexy and limited-edition vinyl.

Andrew Hung
An Evening With Beverly Luff Linn

Fuck Button, producer and solo artist Andrew Hung has created the original soundtrack to curious oddball rom-com film An Evening With Beverly Luff Linn. The film’s pastichey seventies setting and comic premise means that Hung adjusts his epic futurist electronics somewhat, instead serving up twenty-nine brief but effective vignettes. Fun times, out on Lex.

Goblin
Profondo Rosso (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Having unsuccessfully reached out to composer Giorgio Gaslini and prog-rock stars Pink Floyd, filmmaker Dario Argento found Goblin to make the score for his 1975 film Deep Red (or Profondo Rosso in Italian). This beautiful 2xLP re-issue comes a gatefold cover with spot metallic ink, and is limited to 500 copies.

Hans Zimmer
Widows (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Hans Zimmer awakes on sheets of satin. Enrobed in a velour dressing gown, he rises from the bed and shuffles to the French window. He looks out over the idyllic Mediterranean island he calls home. A family of birds chorus in the olive grove outside his villa. He allows a smile to curl the corners of his mouth - ‘I have made it’, he thinks. ‘I am living’. After a two-hour breakfast of salmon and the last eggs of an extinct bird species, Zimmer sets down at his desk. He puts the statuette of his conducting hand to one side, inks his quill, and sets down a few notes upon the parchment. The hours tick by. The scroll unspools. Shadows wax and wane over Zimmer’s pate. Widows, his score for Steve Mcqueen’s new movie of the same name, is taking shape...

Ramin Djawadi
Westworld - Music From The HBO Series (Season 2)

Big grand epic TV show Westworld needed a suitably big epic soundtrack (though with an intimate intelligence running within it too of course, just like the show), and Ramin Djawadi was just the man to provide it. Season 2’s original soundtrack collection contains Ramin’s notable cover-song re-scorings (including ‘Paint It Black’ and ‘Seven Nation Army’), the main theme, and plenty of other cues. Released on vinyl by Music On Vinyl.

Hauschka
Patrick Melrose (Original Television Soundtrack)

Hauschka has pulled out all the stops for this one; 'Patrick Melrose' is the soundtrack composed by Volker Bertelmann for the 2018 TV series starring Benedict Cumberbatch. With each episode treading a very different path and the central character cycling through various moods, a variety of styles and approaches were opportune and necessary, says Bertelmann. Clear 180-gram LP -- in a limited, numbered edition (500) -- in a PVC sleeve with a photographic insert, on Music On Vinyl.

Jed Palmer
Upgrade (Original Motion Picture Score)

Set in a dystopian near-future, Upgrade is a 2018 sci-fi thriller about a technophobe who becomes reliant upon an implant after an accident leaves him paralysed. But the implant has a mind of its own... Sound designer and composer Jed Palmer helms the soundtrack to this sinister tale. There are the usual buzz-bass thumpers for the chase scenes and lovely, spacious, wilting broodathons for the other bits.

Tyler Bates
Deadpool 2 (Original Motion Picture Score)

Deadpool - You know, the funny superhero one? Robin Hood: Men In Tights for millennials? No, me neither. Apparently you and this Norman Records™ description writer are in the minority though - enough people saw the first Deadpool flick that the studio commissioned a sequel. The OST for Deadpool 2 was handled by Marilyn Manson guitarist Tyler Bates (Guardians Of The Galaxy, John Wick). What with Deadpool being a satire (apparently) it made sense for Bates to turn in a typically swashbuckling blockbuster score in order to heighten the comic disconnect.

Max Richter
Mary Queen of Scots (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Ever look at the current British political miasma and imagine how differently things might have turned out if Mary Stuart had been allowed to take the English throne back in the 16th Century? Well, now you don’t have to! New blockbuster flick Mary Queen Of Scots follows the highs and lows (there were more lows) of Mary’s relationship/rivalry with Queen Elizabeth. Max Richter (The Blue Notebooks, Guerrilla) has done the score, which is what we have here. It’s yer regular Richter fare, all sawing strings and Michael Nyman-ish chamber vibes.

Los Sospechos
Postales

Shot in Peru and examining love between a postcard seller and an American tourist which crosses cultures and leads to family strife and woes, the Postales soundtrack is provided by Brooklyn-based Los Sospechos, an afro-latin funk duo made up of members of Daptone’s Menahan Street Band and Budos Band. Vinyl LP from Coalmine.

Mark Korven
Our House

Another horror soundtrack from The Witch's Mark Korven. For Our House, Korven tracks the titular home's steady sink into the supernatural after it's lead build a machine that amplifies the otherworldly. Korven's score starts out high and melodic, before slowly becoming deeper, more droney, and much more ominous.

Jóhann Jóhannsson
Mandy (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

The horror film Mandy, directed by Panos Cosmatos and starring Nicholas “Not the bees” Cage, was the late Jóhann Jóhannsson’s final film score commission. Easily as equipped to convey the intense unease required of a horror film soundtrack as the pathos of its more melancholy stages, Jóhannsson also enlists Stephen O’Malley of Sunn O))) on guitar.

Ben Lovett
The Ritual (Original Music From The Netflix Film)

Musician, soundtrack composer and lover of any and all Lovett-based puns Ben Lovett (LOVETT and Lovers & Friends, also founder of Lovers Label) brings you his latest work for streaming pile of films Netflix’s horror flick The Ritual. The film follows a group of friends on a bone-chilling excursion into a forest. Lovett carefully maintains a tense, woody texture throughout with his accompanying compositions. Have a listen. You’ll Lovett.

Marco Beltrami
A Quiet Place (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

You might have heard that John Krasinski’s 2018 movie A Quiet Place doesn’t feature a whole lot of talking. As such, it was all the more important that whoever Krasinski chose to do the music came through with the goods in order to adequately fill all that empty space. Scream/Resident Evil composer Marco Beltrami did just that. His score is yer classic high-octane horror romp, all sawing strings and pummelling tom-toms.

Ethan Gold
Sway Lake

Ethan Gold releases this theme from the film The Song Of Sway Lake and invites some of the best singers around to interpret it. From the United States of America is John Grant who is no slouch vocal wise despite his neo-idiotic last couple of LPs. And on the flip are British duo the Staves with a honey voiced big band version. 

Mikael Tariverdiev
Seventeen Moments of Spring

Mikael Tariverdiev's score to the legendary (at least in ex-Soviet states) Seventeen Moments of Spring. Though Tariverdiev was initially reluctant to get involved, his soundtrack for the 12 part series would become one of the most iconic in the history of Russian filmmaking. The show follows a Soviet spy working undercover in Nazi Germany, and needed a score to match its weight and drama. Tariverdiev succeeded.

Ahmoudou Madassane
Zerzura (Original Soundtrack Recording)

The soundtrack to Zerzura, the first every Saharan acid Western. It was composed by Ahmoudou Madassane who also wrote the film and acted in it. Once the film had been shot  recorded the whole soundtrack while watching it giving the music a powerful connection to the footage. He mostly used an electric guitar, playing in the Tuareg folk style.

Daniel Pemberton
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

Daniel Pemberton’s score to the latest in the never-ending run of Spider-Man movies gets a standalone release. The Ocean’s 8/Steve Jobs composer does a decent job of teaching an old dog new tricks here. Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse’s mix of symphony and schmaltz might be enough to get Pemberton another Golden Globe nomination.

Cliff Martinez
Hotel Artemis (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Cliff Martinez scored the film Drive with great success. Now the producers of Drive has brought him in to score dystopian thriller Hotel Artemis, starring Jodie Foster. Following a similar style to Drive, Martinez relies on synths to create a dark and tense soundtrack. In addition to the score by Martinez, the album features an exclusive song by Father John Misty along with classics by The Mamas & The Papas, Buffy Sainte-Marie and Elyse Weinberg.

Murcof
Lost In Time

Fernando Corona is Murcof, a Mexican electronica artist who has gradually scaled back the beats in favour of samples and inspiration taken from modern classical music. Lost In Time intersects with the film of the same name, and uses aspects of the Goldberg Variations in order to create a deep and powerful new work. Released by Glacial Movements.

Jon McCallum
Surf Nazis Must Die (Original 1987 Motion Picture Soundtrack)

If you haven't watched 'Surf Nazis Must Die', it's about a bunch of Neo-Nazis who can surf and take control of a Californian beach -- then a grieving mother takes revenge on them with a lot of grenades. Yeah. Now, its soundtrack is being released by the newly launched Strange Disc Records. The score was never released alongside the movie, so this is its first official release: the music was composed and arranged by cult movie musician Jon McCallum, who decided the movie needed a good dosage of foreboding synth to go along with it. For fans of the dark ambient sound made by acts such as Tangerine Dream.

John Carpenter & Alan Howarth
Halloween III: Season of the Witch

Round three for the Halloween franchise brought big witchy vibes to the franchise, but most important for our current interests here is that John Carpenter and Alan Howarth took a thrilling new approach for their soundtrack! Yep, Season of the Witch features massive synth business, big enough to have become an underground dancefloor staple in places. Out on Death Waltz.

Thomas Newman
Skyfall (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Skyfall was one of the best Bond films of recent years, and its soundtrack wasn’t all that shabby either: in fact, Thomas Newman’s work here was nominated for a god-damned Oscar. This double LP set contains the whole soundtrack (but not the Adele theme song I’m afraid), presented beautifully. From Music On Vinyl.

Grant Kirkhope
Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle

Grant Kirkhope - the video-game composer responsible for the music of Goldeneye and Banjo-Kazooie - served up a predictably zany soundtrack for Ubisoft’s 2014 game Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle. The fully-orchestrated score draws strongly from Kirkhope’s previous work as well as Camille Saint-Saens’s beloved Carnival Of The Animals. It appears here as another lavish release from iam8bit - gatefold sleeve, actual fuzzy moustache (!) and paper character cutouts all come as standard.

Keith Emerson
Inferno (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Nowadays people know Suspiria as the 2018 horror flick that provided Thom Yorke with the opportunity flex his film-scoring muscles for the first time. However, what fewer people realise is that Suspiria is actually an updated version of Dario Argento’s 1977 movie of the same name, and that Argento’s Suspiria was followed with sequel Inferno three years later. Inferno is notable for being one of Argento’s only films that wasn’t scored by Goblin. In this instance Argento enlisted the services of Keith Emerson - he of Emerson, Lake & Palmer - and got himself an OST that mixed Carpenter-ish electronics, microtonal string pieces ala György Ligeti and proggy keyboard vignettes. Now Inferno’s music has been remastered and reissued courtesy of Waxwork.

Jóhann Jóhannsson
The Mercy (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Aside from his solo output and numerous collaborations, Jóhann Jóhannsson has been growing a long list of film scores, including Arrival, Prisoners, and The Theory Of Everything. His latest is this score for James Marsh’s The Mercy, about the infamous sailing voyage of Donald Crowhurst. Released on Deutsche Grammophon.

Max Richter
Taboo

Taboo is hardly the word that springs to mind when we think of esteemed contemporary composer Max Richter, but his loveliness persists here in a score of stakes-raising tension. The soundtrack was made for the eponymous TV show about the mysterious time of 1814, which was a long time ago.  

James Newton Howard
Red Sparrow (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Red Sparrow fans, get involved in this, the full original soundtrack to Russian ballet / spy thriller, composed by veteran soundtrack composer James Newton Howard. Our man really draws on the thematic context to the film, including through the use of the likes of Tchaikovsky for inspiration. Double LP release, on red vinyl (of course!) while stocks last.

Stelvio Cipriani
Un'ombra nell'ombra (Ring of Darkness)

From the bottomless vaults of Italian horror movie soundtracks with some involvement from Goblin, here is the OST to the 1979 film Un’ombra nell’ombra (aka Ring Of Darkness), presented on vinyl for the first time ever! Composed by Stelvio Cipriani and performed by Goblin, the music is groovy, proggy, weird and atmospheric. Limited edition of 500 LPs on Four Flies.

Erik Friedlander
Thoroughbreds (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

The cinephiles at Mondo release the score to Cory Finley’s Thoroughbreds. Much of the composition is handled by Erik Friedlander - his entries are heady pieces of neo-noir in the vein of Michael Abels’s music for Get Out. Delightfully eerie stuff. The album also features songs from King Harvest, A Tribe Called Red, The Sweet Hurt and more.
