Only Now Forever

While Invada have generally focused on soundtrack releases in the past couple of years they do still find time to plug new band fare every now and then.

Adrian Utley & Will Gregory (Ft. Anne Briggs)
Arcadia (Music From The Motion Picture)

Beak’s third album, >>>, follows on from > and >>. Does this show a lot or very little imagination when it comes to naming albums?

Lowlife (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Sound artist and composer Kreng gets a physical release for his score for the grizzled crime-comedy flick LOWLIFE. As with a lot of Invada’s other releases, the music here tends towards the more bombastic end of the film-scoring world. What makes Kreng stand out is his ability to mix tense orchest...view item »

Kyle Dixon & Michael Stein
Stranger Things - Season 1 Box Set (A Netflix Original Series Soundtrack)

Fans of this highly successful Netflix series get your wallets out as Invada now present an utterly lavish edition of the already released soundtrack to Season one.

Before The Flood (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Cliff Martinez / Various

Always Then

Well, there's a lot of this rumbling bleak new-wave stuff going around at the moment and this lot are particularly excellent at encapsulating that grainy, listless yet implicitly determined mood which kind of suits our current times eh?

Stranger Things 2 (A Netflix Original Series Soundtrack)

The SURVIVE members return with their soundtrack to the second series of the Netflix sci-fi show. Recalling the classic synth scores of Tangerine Dream and John Carpenter is part of their remit, but this isn’t just lazy nostalgic simulation - there’s oodles of inventiveness, sensitiv...view item »

Mac Quayle
Mr. Robot: Original Television Series Soundtrack Volume 3

Mac Quayle hit the heights with his soundtrack to season 2 of Mr. Robot, but for Mr. Robot: Original Television Series Soundtrack Volume 3, he surpases even that.

Nicholas Britell
Moonlight (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Black Mirror: Men Against Fire

In what is amounts to arguably the darkest and most dystopian television programme of 2016, Charlie Brooker's sensational Black Mirror has returned with a vengeance. This Men Against Fire soundtrack composed by Ben Salisbury & Geoff Barrow provides the perfect companion to a stunning and harrowing array o...view item »

Thought Forms / Esben And The Witch

We have a split LP here from two bands you already like, so I shouldn't have to work too hard to sell this one to you. I'm listening to the Thought Forms side right now, it's got four songs on it. They do a shimmering kind of post-rock/doom/dreampop thing and if you've not heard their albums you should investigate them. Their side starts off in ...view item »

Prevenge (Original Soundtrack)

Geoff Barrow’s Invada label continues to be a safe haven for the finest new soundtrack music: here is Toydrum’s musical accompaniment to the pregnancy-based horror film Prevenge. Toydrum tap into the giallo flavour of the movie with dramatic spacey synthesizer work, just lik...view item »


As a squelching pool of nostalgic synthwork, College's third full-length album - Shanghai - is an enriching building block on top of an already sprawling collection. Inspired by the city itself, this gold-pressed LP is an offering absorbed in mystery and a perfect homage to one of the wo...view item »


Debut full length, as well as their first release on Invada records. And this ain’t a bad start for the London duo, featuring remixes from Clint Mansell and East India Youth (This track will be his last under the moniker).

Cliff Martinez
Drive - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack (Special Anniversary Edition)

A whopping 5 years on from the release of Drive, the film’s much-loved synth-tastic soundtrack is getting a special fancy reissue edition.

Pedro Bromfman
Narcos (Original Soundtrack)

Narcos is a Netflix drama about the rise of drug baron Pablo Escobar. Pedro Bromfman’s score captures the dark, seedy underworld perfectly, creating a haunting atmosphere that compliments the show’s subject. Among the 28 tracks is the show’s theme song, Tuyo, by Rodrigo Amarante...view item »

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.

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...view item »

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 clim...view item »

Mac Quayle
Mr. Robot Season 1 Volume 1 (Original Soundtrack)

Mac Quayle has been soundtracking the excellent show Mr. Robot from the beginning, and Geoff Barrow’s Invada label is now putting that soundtrack out into the world on deluxe vinyl. Quayle worked with Cliff Martinez on all those slick Nicolas Winding Refn...view item »

Brian Reitzell
Hannibal Season 3 - Volume 2

Brian Reitzell is known for his drumming with French synth-poppers Air, but he has carved out a very respectable side-line as a composer for the screen. His background-spook for the third series of cannibal-thriller Hannibal is very fine indeed, and this double vinyl release pairs his original c...view item »

Scarlet Rascal
Scarlet Rascal

Textured and matured indie with one foot in noise rock post punk walls of sound, with Talking Heads esque vocals and rolling basslines, interesting and off kilter. Debut album comes on CD and vinyl through Geoff Barrow’s (Portishead) Invada imprint and mixed by Barrow and Craig Sil...view item »

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 d...view item »

Ulas Pakkan
Baskin Original Soundtrack

Baskin is a hot new horror film from Turkey, and it comes with a noteworthy soundtrack from Ulas Pakken. It's a synth-tastic set of atmospheres, with some welcome Turkish twists to the familiar electro-horror drama sounds. Released by Invada on 2 slabs of blood red vinyl, with exclusive artwork from John Bergin...view item »

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 hap...view item »

Of Desire

The second record from KVB does an excellent job mixing synthesizers and a bass-heavy rock throb with classic-style dramatic vocals. Of Desire could have emerged from one of the late 80’s finer bands. Made at Invada studios using some wonderful synths and released on Geoff Barrow's very ...view item »

James Newton Howard
Nightcrawler Original Soundtrack

Geoff Barrow’s Invada label release yet another high-grade contemporary film soundtrack: this time, James Newton Howard’s soundtrack to the Jake Gyllenhaal-starring Nightcrawler. Two vinyl versions available: one ‘Cherry Cola’ coloured and one ‘Streetlamp Y...view item »

Power Glove

EP II follows on, naturally enough, from EP I, which released for Record Store Day and didn’t hang around long. Power Glove make electronic music that is weighty on the 1980’s cultural influences (I mean they are named after a Nintendo accessory…). Out on Invada, pressed to red vinyl....view item »

Beak> / DD/MM/YY

Crippled Black Phoenix
The Ressurectionists & Night Raider

Crippled Black Phoenix have released their album in a ridiculous storm of confusion. It's out in a 2CD box set that apparently contains the albums The Resurrectionists and Night Raider, a single CD called 200 Tons of Bad Luck which collects some tracks from the box set and a double LP called 8 Songs which has six tracks that are on the other rele...view item »

Secret Diary

The superb synthpop soundtrack to 2011’s ‘Drive’ has been a resounding success and a strong seller here over the past year or two. It’s already made a minor star of Kavinsky, whose slick debut LP of electro-house synth wizardr...view item »

Teenage Color

Here we have Teenage Color by College. Pop-music history has many cases of people dining out on a single notorious song for life...but now the Invada label are releasing the French Producer's debut album and EP after that Real Hero song caught that relentless wave off ...view item »

Cliff Martinez
Far Cry 4 - Original Soundtrack

Total sketchy madness from Cliff Martinez with the Far Cry 4 - Original Soundtrack. I must say, I bloody love computer game music and this is no exception. It goes from some kitsch "middle-eastern" psy-trancey drum & bass into an atmospheric not-quite-traditional Indian and/or Indonesian vibe with tuned percussion. ...view item »

Brian Reitzell
30 Days Of Night - Original Soundtrack

This is an awesome instrumental soundtrack. Not only do I highly recommend seeing this movie, based on a graphic novel and is actually a dark/violent vampire flick, but the soundtrack perfectly reflects the intensity, adrenaline and horror of this film. Filled with sporadic drums, chaotic beats, and some mellow, dark ambiance- this soundtrack is...view item »

0898 / Welcome To The Machine

Couple of great tracks from Bristol-based Beak> on this limited edition white vinyl 10" on Invada. One from their special edition first album which perfectly captures their weird krautrock sound and another treat: a cover of a Pink Floyd track which manages to keep the darkness of the original, while making i...view item »

Sleaford Mods

More loud and shouty genius from 2014's sensations, the lairy duo Sleaford Modz. This limited twelve arrives as the aptly titled 'Tiswas' EP, a collection of mostly all new material from Jason Williamson, who opens his mouth once and never closes it, and Andrew Fearn, who lets things tinker away in the background. These tracks wer...view item »

Brian Reitzell
Hannibal Season 2 (Original Television Soundtrack)

Brian Reitzell is doing a myriad different things in the musical sphere, but he's been a master of neo-classical for a minute, and his soundtrack for Hannibal Season 2 is another high watermark moment in his career as a composer. As dark and violently transgressive as the TV show, Reitzell's music wavers ...view item »

Brian Reitzell
Hannibal Season 1 (Original Television Soundtrack)

Television's spookiest and probably grossest show, 'Hannibal', needs a soundtrack to make you jump and clutch at the nearest pillow in fear. The diverse sounds composer Brian Reitzell is charged with creating for the show jump from chilling IDM, dark ambient, acoustic percussion, avant-jazz and neo-classical tranquillity. Each sound is another t...view item »

Craig Safan
Warning Sign - Original Soundtrack

Some vegetable stock from Craig Safan. Warning Sign - Original Soundtrack is a vinyl pressing from the 80's horror / sci-fi film score baron. It's jammed with many a synth, one for every occasion - fear, happiness, suspense, action - you want some sounds to accompany your on screen life? Safan's got you covered. Got a l...view item »

Tangled Hair / Sweet Sixteen

‘Tangled Hair’ has already received plays on Zane Lowe as his ‘Next Hype’ record but despite that fact, this is actually pretty good. Geoff Barrow has obviously been so impressed he has decided to release the record himself on his ...view item »

Thought Forms
Ghost Mountain

‘Ghost Mountain’ is a superbly heady mix of full on doom rock drone and effects laden MBV style indie rock, on first listen I’m blown away by the ease of transition from one style to the other and after a while I feel like it just works perfectly, if you can imagine ...view item »

Cliff Martinez

Many days of late I have ranted under my breath about the unceasing proliferation of re-issued "classic" soundtracks and beg the existential question to myself much of the time: "Is there any real need for all this vinyl fetishism? Just watch the bleedin' film!" Then along comes Cliff Martinez and his glorious OST for the otherwise fairl...view item »


'EP1' comes from very anonymous project Cuts and is being released on Invada Records. Cuts' audio-visual work so far has been droning and slow-paced, while their music seems to reciprocate with distorted, soundscaping synth that never lets up and crushing drums that hide in the shadows. 'EP1' has a bit of post-rock glare to it, a ...view item »

Brian Reitzell
Watch_Dogs (Original Game Soundtrack)

Brian Reitzell's score to the highly-anticipated computer game WATCH_DOGS. Full of infectious beats and atmospheric, retro-futuristic synths, the score is a further achievement from composer Reitzell, who has previously written music for the highly-rated U.S drama series HANNIBAL as well as working on multiple scores with acclaimed director...view item »

The Fauns

Following the huge success of The Fauns album ‘Lights’, Invada Records are bringing their debut self-titled album back to life by re‐releasing it on double CD after 3 years of being out of print.

Power Glove
Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon Soundtrack Original Music

This was originally released on Record Store Day but as usually happens it sold out so it was decided to do a second version of this incredible score. I don't think this quite the rip off fest that the LCD Soundsystem box set was and its more a case that there were genuinely a lot of people who missed out.  This time its on dou...view item »

Crippled Black Phoenix
A Love of Shared Disasters

Finally The debut long player from Crippled Black Phoenix 'A Love Of Shared Disasters'. The first thing that strikes me about this is how cinematic sounding it is. They've used a combination of modern and old Victorian equipment to achive the sound. There's a country feel running through the album at times. If you didn't already know the band fe...view item »

Crippled Black Phoenix
I, Vigilante

Supergroups eh? Here's a post rock one. Can they do for post rock what Emerson Lake and Palmer did for prog? Or what Tired Pony have done this is the first time I've come across them. I've been told that past members include a Mogwai and a Portishead though the names on the current CD are less familiar. The ...view item »

Adrian Utley’s Guitar Orchestra

The Fauns

Ooooh Geoff Barrow and Clint Mansell are fans so they MUST be good? The Fauns are a 6-piece, female-fronted band from Bristol who do that whole modern stadium shoegaze thing very, very well.

Thought Forms
Only Hollow

This is one of those 7”s that’s a different speed on each side, so I’m reviewing the B side first because it’s the 33rpm one. It’s quite a lengthy piece of dirge-doom jamming with howling vocals, slow pounding drums and drawn out walls of guitar fuzz, like Harvey Milk partaki...view item »

Doki Doki Run

This CD here is the work of Matt Williams, best known for being a member of Geoff Barrow’s excellent BEAK> but also for his alter egos Team Brick and Knife Liibra...view item »


This has been an office favourite for the last few weeks. In times of drought, where decent promos have been thin on the ground, we've resorted to sticking this on and it's normally brought some sort of calm to the office atmosphere before I go and ruin it by playing something awful we've been sent and practically causing a riot. It's a class al...view item »

The Heads
Dead In The Water

I guess these guys are yet another overlooked band in a sea of too many overlooked ones. I'm not sure what this album is supposed to's almost as if it's a collection of live uninterrupted jams from various venues, but whatever it is - it smokes. I highly recommend this to fans of the neo-psych, stoner, sludge, etc. genres. If you are a ...view item »

Peeesseye & Talibam!
Peeesseye & Talibam!

Ok, here we got ourselves a collaborative effort from then insane improvers Talibam! and the Gothic Junk folk experimentalism of Peeesseye, both emperors of the NYC improv scene playing in all sorts of outfits including the outstanding Storm and Stress. Anyway, after years of mutual friendship and touring activity they decided to get tog...view item »


Trippy, throwback, groovy, spacey and certainly not pretentious, Beak> is an experience. Think Joy Division or Radiohead. Hey, why not even mention Portishead? Beak> is a blend of all three, in my opinion. According to discogs, this album was recorded live in one room with no overdubs or repair, with only edits to create arrangements. You ...view item »

Team Brick

It's almost impossible to reference any one or two specific similar artists, as this is a record that has clearly been made by a totally unique individual. Moving from incredible vocal techniques, to gushing water, to full on noise, to  screwed up pop, free jazz, and to a near 30 minute closing track based around brass instruments, it's fair to...view item »
