The rich tradition of Italian musicians producing incredible and unusual soundtracks for films is very much still alive!

Thomas Newman
The Shawshank Redemption

The soundtrack to classic movie The Shawshank Redemption should stir some feels in the minds of many: now you can hear it without having a TV to hand.

Pierre Henry
Maléfices

Pierre Henry’s influential score for the 1962 film Malefices - which starred Juliette Greco, no less - makes its way back to wax courtesy of Cacophonic. Henry was one of the first of the musique concrete crew to see the exciting ways in which the medium could cross-breed with other genres. His music here, part-Hammer Horror ghoulishness and part eerie avant experiments, is a good example of Henry seeing that potential realised.

Michael Giacchino
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Star Wars music tends to stand up to plenty of in-depth repeat listening, and the soundtrack to the franchise’s latest edition is no exception. For Rogue One Michael Giacchino has done a great job writing memorable original music while referencing and recalling vintage themes from the series. Circa two hundred musicians were involved in this recording! Double LP on Universal.

Ennio Morricone
Un Uomo Da Rispettare

Still the reissuers keep digging, and still the vast soundtrack archives of Ennio Morricone keep providing high-grade goods. Un Uomo Da Rispettare, a 1972 crime flick starring Kirk Douglas, drifts into some real deep avant territory: eerie atmospheres and dissonant orchestrations, very nice indeed. Reissued by Superior Viaduct.

Graeme Miller & Steve Shill
The Moomins

When I was a child I taped the Moomins Theme tune off the telly and my dad thought I'd written it. The truth was though that it and all the other incidental music from the show was written by two chaps in Leeds. It's a wonderful comforting soundtrack that will take you back to those carefree days of watching telly and playing. And now those nice folks at Finders Keepers have re-issued it so dads can get emotional and play it to their uninterested children.

Paul Weller
Jawbone (Music From The Film)

A surprising move from an old hand here, as Paul Weller produces a film soundtrack for the first time ever. Better still, the old mod rocker manages to overcome old habits for Jawbone’s OST: the key track is a twenty-one minute abstract collage of weird guitars and synths! Along with some more traditional songs, it’s an exciting move from Mr Weller, and a great fit for the film. Out on Parlophone.

Mark Ayres
Doctor Who - Ghost Light

Dr. Who from back when it was 1989 and he was played by a man named Sylvester McCoy, apparently. 'Doctor Who - Ghost Light' is about the usual sci-fi antics, I'm sure, though I don't think any daleks are involved. Mark Ayres scored the music, in what was one of his final recordings for 1/4" tape before the world went all digital -- ah, the olden days. Now you can hear it on vinyl.

Reissued by Death Waltz.

Billy Mitchel
Electronic Dance (From The Motion Picture Walkabout)

Nic Roeg’s astonishing 1971 film Walkabout is a psychedelic exploration of the outback fuelled by a soundtrack that mixed orchestral cues with overhead bursts of psych-pop. The Roundtable have pressed one of these strange lost songs to 7” vinyl. Billy Mitchel’s Electronic Dance (From The Motion Picture Walkabout) is an intense mix of jazz drumming, homemade electronics and surreal tape experimentation that lives up to the film’s acid-fried reputation.

Steve Moore
The Mind's Eye - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

Steve Moore has history in Zombi, meaning that he’s demonstrated his talent for soundtracking spooooooky horror movies in the past. Here he applies his synth skills to The Mind’s Eye, weaving uneasy ambient passages and bombastic themes like it ain’t no thing. Plenty of tense dramatic music here that will certainly appeal to horror soundtrack aficionados. On Relapse.

Danny Elfman
Goosebumps

Danny Elfman, composer of a million soundtracks, naturally had a hand in accompanying Goosebumps, a series with an impressive heritage (62 books!). It sounds highly dramatic and plenty spooky, and comes packaged in brand new artwork exclusively designed by Tim Jacobus, the illustrator of the books. On Waxwork.

Nick Cave & Warren Ellis
Mars (Original Series Soundtrack)

Nick Cave & Warren Ellis go to space! Mars is the latest screen project to benefit from the pair’s sensitive original scoring; they also contributed the series’ theme song, which involves Cave’s vocals. These two have worked together so many times in so many contexts, they can probably produce high-calibre soundtrack work like this in their sleep. Excellent as ever. The Mars soundtrack is released on Milan.

Jonah Senzel
Pony Island - Official Video Game Soundtrack

Pony Island is a new game that wryly nods towards video game history, and Jonah Senzel’s soundtrack is similar, using the gleeful pallette of 8-bit sounds to make new themes. And in a weird inversion of how things usually work, this soundtrack accompaniment to the game comes with a download for the actual game itself (via Steam). What a bonus!

Peter Thomas & Mocambo Astronautic Sound Orchestra
Space Patrol (Raumpatrouille)

Raumpatrouille (or Space Patrol in English) was Germany’s first sci-fi TV series, broadcast in the 60’s. The theme music, composed by Peter Thomas, is a remarkable thing, a funky number that also features the first known use of a vocoder in music. This 7” release features a new re-version of the tune, produced with the steel band sound of Mocambo Astronautic Sound Orchestra.

Kema
Alle Sorgenti Delle Civiltà

The world of Italian library music and film composition is already fairly obscure territory, but Giuilia De Muittis is even less well known than the area’s ‘big names’, no doubt due to the inbuilt sexism of 70’s Italy. She played on many releases, but Alle Sorgenti Delle Civiltá is the first ever album of her own work as an artist, under the moniker of Kema. 10” on Cacophonic.

Dustin O'Halloran & Hauschka
Lion (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

The new Saroo Brierly film Lion has Nicole Kidman and Dev Patel in central roles and Hauschka and Dustin O'Halloran on the soundtrack. O'Halloran is an experienced film soundtrack composer, whereas melodic prepared-piano tinkerer Hauschka is more often sighted in experimental music contexts, but the pairs different angles intersect wonderfully here. CD release on Sony Classical.

Jerry Goldsmith
Planet Of The Apes - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

Jerry Goldsmith has written scores for loads of hollywood films, including Gremlins, L.A. Confidential, and Hollowman.

His off-kilter choices of instrumentation emphasised the warfare of the film, and got him nominated for an academy award.

Hiele
Saints

Saints is a film about the distant and isolated island of Saint Helena, for which Hiele has provided the soundtrack. Appropriately for the nature of the film, Hiele has pulled back on the beats somewhat, choosing instead to emphasise the droning qualities of clarinets and strings and the like, over the course of eleven miniatures. Edition of 300 10”s on the Ekster label.

Endless Melancholy
In The Shadow Of History

Stripping away pretty much all of the electronics and leaving skeletal piano pieces and stark string accompaniments, this is Endless Melancholy’s score for the documentary Ostroh: In the Shadow Of History. Delicate pieces that have the close personal feel of Living Room Songs by Ólafur Arnalds, and live up to the artist’s devastating name.

Various
Music From Bambi

Disney are getting in on the movie soundtrack vinyl reissues game, although this one isn’t exactly an obscure cult gem.

Double LP on Universal.

Power Glove
Trials Of The Blood Dragon (Original Game Soundtrack)

Trials Of The Blood Dragon is a new game, but in a vintage style, allowing the soundtrack to revisit familiar 80’s tropes through 2016 lenses. Power Glove go hard on the synth arpeggios and big drum machines: it really does sound like 1986! Out on CD and double pink vinyl LP, courtesy of Invada.

Bernard Herrmann
Taxi Driver

Martin Scorcese’s Taxi Driver is of course an essential cinematic classic, and Bernard Herrmann’s incredibly atmospheric soundtrack plays an important part. Take a seat in the back of Robert De Niro's cab and cruise the streets, witness the sleaze and scumbags that walk the streets.

Kyle Dixon & Michael Stein
Stranger Things: Season 1 - Volume 1

I don't really have to sell this to you do I? First up it's the soundtrack for Netflix new telly programme that Phil tells me is good. Secondly it has a synth vibe reminiscent of all those synth guys you know and love. You can bet your house that the first name I'm going to throw at you is John Carpenter closely followed by Tangerine Dream, Cliff Martinez and a bit of Aphex Twin thrown in for good measure. Created by two of the guys from S U R V I V E. Sold. 

Roque Baños
Don't Breathe (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Don’t Breathe is a properly eerie horror film about not breathing, and a fair amount of its visceral impact comes from Roque Baños’ original score, which treats the audience / listener like a plaything. The tense passages are very tense indeed, and the climactic parts will spook you for sure. The soundtrack is released on double orange vinyl via Invada.

Morricone 60 is Ennio's own project, an orchestral tribute to some of his greatest work over the decades.

Beat Street - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack: Volume 1

The 1984 movie Beat Street is all about New York’s burgeoning street hip-hop culture, which was really starting to sizzle at this point.

Volume 1 of the soundtrack is reissued on vinyl by Music On Vinyl.

The BBC Radiophonic Workshop was responsible for nurturing talents such as Delia Derbyshire, and developing madness through experimental hand-cut tape loops and signal generators before synthesizers were available.

Boom Bip
Sun Choke

Boom Bip is a meticulous creator. With each album he has done for Lex Records showing his huge range of mastery in sampling and pure instrumentation it’s only logical he would be asked to do score work for someone. The pieces are minimal,  droning and synthetic movements that don’t sit with you easily.

Gruff Rhys
Set Fire To The Stars

Good isn't he? This soundtrack to a film about Dylan Thomas's first week in the USA has a warm hopeful feel with the Super Furry Animals lad effortlessly blending cocktail jazz, Americana and Atomic Age bop using vintage instruments and live takes. Recorded at the same time but in very different circumstances to his last LP 'American Interior', this sounds like it will be an essential addition to his back catalogue.  

Khyam Allami
As I Open My Eyes / A Peine J'ouvre Les Yeux (Original Soundtrack)

Khyam Alami has assembled the soundtrack to the impressive feature length debut of Leyla Bouzid, A Peine J’ouvre Les Yeux (or As I Open My Eyes).

Blue Marvin Orchestra
Codice d'Amore Orientale

Codice d’Amore Orientale is an old Italian film that looks like it might be just a little bit erotic.

Rovi (Piero Umiliani)
Due Temi con Variazioni

Rovi is one of the many names of Piero Umiliani: perhaps he wanted to go anonymous on this one because Due Temi con Variazoni, the Luigi Scattini film that this music originally soundtracked, is basically pornography a la Mondo. Of course, Umiliani can make that work no problem, supplying fifteen tracks of funky jazzy action sure to satisfy any listener. LP reissue as part of the the Schema SCEB Series.

The Childhood of a Leader - Original Soundtrack

Wow! Brand new Scott Walker! The avant-crooner legend has been enlisted to create a full-blown orchestral score to Brady Corbet’s The Childhood of a Leader, a Satre adaptation set in 1919. There’s plenty of the dissonance of late-period Walker at play here, a perfect fit with the tense psychology of the film. On 4AD.

Vangelis
Blade Runner

Composed by Vangelis for Ridley Scott's 1982 classic, the Blade Runner soundtrack has assumed legendary status amongst fans of synthesizer music. Its combination of classical compositions with synth work perfect mirrors the futuristic atmospheric ambient noir of the original film. A classic of the genre.

John Corigliano
Altered States

Ken Russell’s 1980 sci-fi horror film Altered States is a pretty creepy, psychologically challenging picture. It has a soundtrack to match from John Corigliano, who uses every part of his orchestra to elicit dramatic tones and tunes that drawn on plenty of avant-gardeisms to achieve their impact. Remastered audio, reissued on purple and violet swirl vinyl with a glittery gatefold sleeve.

Luigi Porto
Scimmie – Colonna Sonora “L ́Apocalisse delle Scimmie” di Romano Scavolini

Romano Scavolini made and directed the film 'L'apocalisse delle Scimmie' in 2005, and asked composer Luigi Porto to give him a score that absolutely wasn't a soundtrack: according to Porto, he asked for "something that continues even if the film stops, a music that doesn't care". The result is this thing that is a soundtrack but also isn't.

David Brent
Life On The Road

Ricky "Are You Offended???????????????????????????" Gervais smugly presents his new collection of smash hits, or so we assume, from the sort of conceptually bemusing follow-up to The Office (UK) which follows David Brent touring as a bona fide rocker. Life On The Road has a soundtrack with songs made by Gervais himself -- are you excited? They might be as good as his tweets.

Pan Sonic
Atomin Paluu

This right here represents the final recordings of Finnish heavyweights Pan Sonic! Suitably for a group with such a brutalist sound, they were commissioned to soundtrack a documentary about building a nuclear power plant: construction recordings are integrated into Vainio and Vaisanen’s harsh digital structures, with award-winning results! Atomin Paluu is out on Blast First Petite.

Basil Poledouris
Robocop: Original Score

Another day, another soundtrack to a classic 80’s film released on vinyl… This time we have Robocop, grandly and dramatically scored by Basil Poledouris, with a full orchestra working at his behest. The records (yes, the soundtrack stretches over 2 LPs) are pressed to silver wax: appropriate eh? On Milan Records.

Kreng
Camino - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

This is Kreng's score to the 2015 adventure thriller 'Camino' starring Zoe Bell (not Zoe Ball as I misread). The soundtrack has been compared to the dark-ish pop of Nine inch Nails but also has electronic elements and may appeal to fans of Mogwai's recent soundtrack work.  It all comes in deluxe packaging with booklet.

Ulas Pakkan

Woodkid & Nils Frahm
Ellis

Here is the score to a short film about Ellis Island, New York, composed by Woodkid and performed by neo-classical piano wunderkind Nils Frahm. Delicate piano lines trace out the stories of thousands of twentieth century migrants, in that ever-stately Frahm manner. Oh, and both the film and the soundtrack feature Robert De Niro! Out on Erased Tapes.

Alex Somers
Captain Fantastic - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

Alex Somers is the ‘Alex’ of Jónsi & Alex, and the Sigur Ros frontman does an appearance here as well. Captain Fantastic is a big movie with an accordingly big soundtrack, but there are also delicate and atmospheric textures here: it's something you’d be happy to listen to at home even if there was no movie attached. Double LP on Invada.

Pan/Scan
Cinematic Lies

Pan/Scan have a lot of love for those crucial film soundtracks of the 80’s: the synth-heavy ones from the keyboards of John Carpenter, Goblin and Fabio Frizzi. They pay their homage with Cinematic Lies, their debut full-length, which traces the outlines of an imaginary film with its multi-faceted dramatic stylings. 500 CD copies and 500 LP copies (the LP also comes with a CD), on Cineploit.

Alan Parker
One Summer

1983’s British TV show One Summer was blessed with a particularly interesting soundtrack produced by Alan Parker, whose session work saw him turning up on Kate Bush and David Bowie records. All sorts of sharp atmospheres here. The whole of his original score (the tracks are very short) is presented on this 7” on Finders Keepers.

Miles Davis
Miles Ahead (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Miles Ahead, the big new Don Cheadle biopic of Miles Davis, comes with a soundtrack that is, needless to say, stellar. 11 classic Miles tracks that span the mighty jazzman’s career are included, rounded out by some new compositions by Robert Glasper, working with Herbie Hancock and Pharoahe Monch. All on 2 vinyl LPs.

Piero Umiliani & I Suoi Oscillatori
Il Mondo Dei Romani

Italian avant-soundtrack man Piero Umiliani produced this strange music as an accompaniment to Il Mondo Dei Romani,  an early 70’s documentary about ancient Rome. Umiliani believed that the most appropriate music for the project would be a recreation of traditional instruments via a collection of synthesisers: remarkable sounds! Orange vinyl on We Release Whatever The Fuck We Want.

Max Richter
Perfect Sense (Original Film Soundtrack)

Richter has been getting his toes right under that soundtrack table of late and rightly so, his music is a perfect fix for any tear drenched movie experience. This is a release of the 2011 science fiction drama which starred none other than Ewan McGregor. Expect heartbroken pianos and cellos weeping.

Max Richter
The Last Days On Mars - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

Max Richter has always captured a certain haunting and melancholy place in our hearts. Most of Max's music is released on Deutsche Grammophon, the oldest record label in the world, and not without reason. His music sounds like it's been unearthed from a time capsule buried by a lonely composer from the first half of this century. And just like those phenomenal solo albums, the Original Motion Picture Soundtrack to 2013’s The Last Days on Mars is filled with beautiful and sparse modern classical tracks.

David Bowie
Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars (The Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Ziggy Stardust: The Motion Picture is the video documentation of the legendary final gig of David Bowie’s Ziggy Stardust period: the one where he surprised everyone, including The Spiders From Mars, by closing the whole thing down. Needless to say, it's a pretty special show, and the soundtrack audio is presented here on 2 LPs.

Pink Floyd
More

More is the soundtrack to the Barbet Schroeder film of the same name. It was released in 1969 between the albums A Saucerful of Secrets and Ummagumma. The album featured acoustic folk ballads which the band would reprise on other albums and some heavy rock that wasn’t particularly representative of the band’s sound.

BEAK>
Couple In A Hole Soundtrack

Invada have built up a strong reputation for issuing film soundtracks over the last few years, and their latest release finds label-owner (and Portishead co-founder) Geoff Barrow firing up his kraut-pulse trio BEAK> to accompany Tom Geen’s Couple In A Hole. Their uneasy vibe fits the cave setting of the film very nicely.

Bernard Purdie
Lialeh

1974’s Lialeh is regarded as “the first major black porn movie”, and who are we to disagree? With a film like that to accompany, it should be no surprise that the original soundtrack, by Bernard Purdie, is some of the sexiest, funkiest material you ever heard. I mean, these are literally porn grooves. Extremely rare, but now reissued by Light In The Attic.

David Holmes
'71 - Original Soundtrack

Electronic artist and film scoring man David Holmes is behind the soundtrack for '71, a new feature-length by Yann Demange about a soldier who gets lost in Belfast. Holmes decided the best way to go about recording the music for the film was to pre-record, having most of the music done before he'd seen a single scene of Demange's work. That way, Demange was able to shoot with the music in the back of his mind.

Heartworn Highways – Original Soundtrack

The documentary film Heartworn Highways and its soundtrack perfectly captures the time when country troubadours Townes Van Zandt, Guy Clark and Steve Earle, among others, began to wrestle the credibility of country music back from the shiny over-production that was going on in Nashville. The film and the musicians showed their love for the folk and bluegrass roots of country music.
