Ryuichi Sakamoto
The Staggering Girl

The Staggering Girl is a new film directed by Luca Guadagnino (A Bigger Splash, Call Me By Your Name). It stars Julianne Moore and Kyle McLachlan. In a very sensible move, he’s asked renowned, multi award-winning Japanese composer Ryuichi Sakamoto to score the film, because, well, why wouldn’t you? In his lifetime, Sakamoto was a founding member of Yellow Magic Orchestra and has worked with David Sylvian, among others.

Fatima Al Qadiri
Atlantics (Original Music From Mati Diop's Film)

Senegalese-Kuwaiti electronic artist Fatima Al Qadiri presents the wide-ranging score to Mati Diop’s debut feature film Atlantics, a love story set in a near-future of humanitarian and environmental catastrophes that’ll be available on Netflix at the end of November and which won the Grand Jury prize at Cannes earlier this year. 

Cliff Martinez
Too Old To Die Young

Cliff Martinez is best known for his soundtrack to the Nicolas Winding Refn film, Drive. He has worked with with Refn on a number of other film  projects too including Only God Forgives and Neon Demon. Refn has now turned to TV with the series Too Old To Die Young and his go-to man, Cliff Martinez has provided the soundtrack.

Ryuichi Sakamoto
BTTB (20th Anniversary Edition)

Milan deliver more splendid material from the one and only Ryuichi Sakamoto, this time in the form of a twentieth anniversary reissue. Hitherto elusive outside Japan, BTTB (a.k.a. Back to the Basics) mainly consists of solo piano pieces of an artful and generally gentle contemporary classical persuasion. There’s a bit of prepared piano and what sounds like a hydrophone recording as well.

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...

Colin Stetson
Hereditary (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Ari Aster’s Hereditary is the latest horror flick du jour. Plenty of the chat has centred around the film’s soundtrack. The usual adjectives have been applied to Colin Stetson’s score - ‘bone-chilling’, 'blood-curdling', ‘horrifying’ - but it really does warrant such descriptions. The saxophone mastermind balances disquieting ambiences and drones with screes of abrasive noise.

OME
Turkey On The Edge (Original Documentary Film Soundtrack)

Whether or not you’ve seen the documentary film Turkey On The Edge, you’ll want to hear the soundtrack, which was assembled by OME, the leader of Turkish band BaBa ZuLa. This piece of music is all about the saz, with the instrument displayed acoustically as well as through an array of filters and effects that create a whole soundscape. Vinyl release from the Milan label.

Ryuichi Sakamoto
Ikari (Rage) (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Ryuichi Sakamoto is often unfairly lumped in with ‘composers’ like Luke Howard, Olafur Arnalds and Ludovici Einaudi. He manages to distinguish himself from those charlatans by not being absolutely dreadful. His considered brand of post-minimalist music-making has always seemed well-suited to the big screen, and his score for 2016 Korean flick Ikari (Rage) plays to his strengths. Strings, pianos, lots of reverb, that sort of thing.

Basil Poledouris
Conan The Barbarian (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Arnie blockbuster Conan The Barbarian is a classic movie with a classic soundtrack, composed by Basil Poledouris. Now that quality OST is seeing reissue, presented in what appears to be a rather vintage sleeve design! Vinyl and CD editions: and if you get the CD version, you’ll also be treated to some other Poledouris scores, for films such as RoboCop. On Milan.

Nick Cave & Warren Ellis
Kings (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Kings (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) by Nick Cave and Warren Ellis further cements their place as top-of-the-list score writers. The film itself is set in Los Angeles in 1992 directed by Deniz Gamze Ergüven, with whom Warren Ellis has worked before, and stars Halle Berry. Nick Cave and Warren Ellis perfectly capture the tension of the most emotionally volatile time in the city’s history.

Ryuichi Sakamoto
async - Remodels

Japanese electronic music legend and former Yellow Magic Orchestra member Ryuichi Sakamoto's 2017 album 'async' graced numerous end of year lists. An all-star cast of remixers have been assembled to re-work the material in their own distinctive visions; Arca, Fennesz, Oneohtrix Point Never, Motion Graphics, Alva Noto, Yves Tumor, Jóhann Jóhannsson, Cornelius and S U R V I V E. 

Matthew Herbert
A Fantastic Woman (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Matthew Herbert appears to have veered away from his super-conceptual production methods for once: his soundtrack for A Fantastic Woman, a powerful Chilean film about trans identity, is simply music, combining rich and colourful synthpop with classical stylings. Herbert’s OST is released by the Milan label.

Ryuichi Sakamoto
async

‘async’ is the latest album by Ryuichi Sakamoto. This release shows us how far he has come and how far he is willing to go to break the boundaries of different sounds and textures. A fifteen-track masterpiece that brings together classical, neo-classical and orchestral music. Available on Vinyl Double LP and CD.

Max Richter
Disconnect (Music From The Motion Picture)

More excellent compositional score-work from Max Richter, this time to accompany the 2012 what-if-internet-but-too-much drama film Disconnect. As well as Richter’s punchy original compositions, this OST collection also includes Jayme Ivision’s song Ni Su Nave. CD released by the Milan label.

Clint Mansell
Loving Vincent (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Clint Mansell’s (Requiem For A Dream, Black Swan, Moon, High Rise) soundtracks Dorota Kobiela and Hugh Welchman’s unique film made up of 65,000 oil paintings. Mansell brings his emotionally devastating mastery through a dreamlike and unstable world. Features a version of Starry  Starry Night by Lianne La Havas.

Warren Ellis
Gauguin (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Warren Ellis is universally acclaimed by now for his partnerships with Nick Cave, both with the Bad Seeds and for their delicate film soundtrack work. For Gaugin, Ellis is scoring solo, using strings and pianos to build gorgeous melancholy constructions. Plus a few Cave / Ellis tracks in there for good measure. CD / LP editions on Milan.

Ryuichi Sakamoto
Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence

Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence was a 1983 film focused around prisoners of war in Japan, which starred David Bowie. Ryuichi Sakamoto’s soundtrack garnered a fair amount more attention than the film itself, winning a BAFTA, which is fair enough with it’s incredibly unique instrumentation and dynamics. Features David Sylvian’s lyrics and vocals on Forbidden Colors.

Max Richter
Out Of The Dark Room

Out Of The Dark Room is a collection of Max Richter’s works for film, hence taking these delicate soundtracks out of the dark room on the cinema and into the light of your stereo. Music excerpted from the soundtracks of Waltz With Bashir, Testament Of Youth, Wadjda and several more. CD released by Editions Milan.

Jed Kurzel
Alien: Covenant (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Australian composer and singer/guitarist Jed Kurzel is known for being in rock group The Mess Hall, and then moving into composing for films such as The Babadook, Macbeth, and Assassin’s Creed. With Covenant closing the arc between Prometheus and Alien, Kurzel draws on the original’s stark isolation and pure horror with spine tingling effect.

Nicolas Winding Refn
The Wicked Die Young (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

As a superb and critically-applauded inspiration to horror flick Neon Demon, Nicolas Winding Refn's original motion picture soundtrack The Wicked Die Young presents itself as an eclectic, intense and uniquely exclusive opportunity to enter the mind of a genius horror producer. 

Various
Cannabis (Original Series Soundtrack)

Mica Levi
Jackie (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Fans of Mica Levi’s acclaimed Under The Skin score, or indeed any of her other excellent work as Micachu, will be pleased to see her working on another major film soundtrack. Jackie is the biopic of Jacqueline Kennedy, whose story receives a dash of extra tension from Levi’s creeping / sweeping compositions. Original soundtrack release on Milan.

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.

Ryuichi Sakamoto
Nagasaki: Memories Of My Son

Ryuichi Sakamoto should be familiar to fans of several different strands of sound, having done crucial work as part of Yellow Magic Orchestra, some explorative collaborations with Fennesz, and many years of sensitive film soundtrack work. This most recent release falls into the latter camp, being the accompaniment to Yoji Yamada’s Nagasaki: Memories Of My Son. Lush and fully orchestrated. Released by Milan.

Nick Cave & Warren Ellis
Hell Or High Water - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

The mighty creative partnership that is Nick Cave and Warren Ellis (The Bad Seeds, Grinderman) has been firing on all cylinders for more than a decade now: remarkable stuff. Now they have produced a soundtrack to David Mackenzie’s film Hell Or High Water, a tough and brooding set of music that perfectly suits the film’s tough desert landscape. Released by Milan.

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.

Tom Holkenborg aka Junkie XL
Deadpool

New superhero movie Deadpool comes fully armed with a big and banging soundtrack by Tom Holkenborg, better known to the world as Junkie XL. Huge hammering beats lead the way, injecting extra drama into the proceedings; although also look out for glimpses of some Seinfeld-worthy slap-bass. 2LP on red vinyl, from Milan.

Ennio Morricone
Jubilee

Ah Ennio, where would we be without your tireless dedication to soundtracking films? How does he maintain that remarkable quality / quantity ratio? Jubilee takes a look back through an array of the Morricone maestro’s most memorable moments, including romantic themes and Spaghetti Western drama. 180g vinyl LP on Milan.

Hans Zimmer
The Milan Years

You can’t watch more than a handful of films before a Hans Zimmer soundtrack looms into view: the man has been one of the major Hollywood players for years. This collection from the Milan label assesses some of his strongest material, all of which stands firmly in its own right, away from the context of the films. The Milan Years is released in double CD and double LP editions.

Antonio Sanchez
Birdman

The soundtrack to Alejandro González Iñárittu’s recent hit film Birdman now sees release as a double vinyl set. Good thing too, as the soundtrack is a rare and remarkable thing: solo drums throughout, devised and performed by Antonio Sanchez. Inventive and thrilling material. The second LP includes a number of classical pieces. Double gatefold LP, limited to 3000 copies.

Warren Ellis
Mustang (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Warren Ellis has long been a dab hand at soundtracking films, and for Mustang he steps away from his usual cinematic partner-in-crime Nick Cave. Ellis’ strings lead proceedings, with a good couple of other instruments following up. The results are wonderful, richly layered and with plenty of atmosphere. On the Milan label.

Cliff Martinez
The Knick

Cliff Martinez is responsible for making deadpan synth drones that creep through the eeriest films; he supplemented Nicolas Winding Refn's violent psychological thriller 'Drive' with ambient music that took the film's dark electro-pop and actualised its tense potential. Now, he's gone and made the score for 'The Knick', a new TV series about innovative doctors working in a probably very creepy hospital.
