- Mala Morska Vila by Zdenek Liska
I love Czech New Wave shit, me. Well, maybe not all of it but y'knar. Hot (or at least somewhat warm) on the hells of the Daisies and Valerie and Her Week of Wonders soundtracks comes this one for Mala Morska Vila, aka The Little Mermaid. I've not seen it but I can't imagine it features Flounder or Sebastian like the mint Disney version. More than likely it features grainy rough 'n' ready film stock and lo-fi surrealism but that's all good too. I remember liking Zdenek Korinkova's soundtrack for The Cremator and this one is equally as interesting despite how different it is to that. For me it's working almost as an opera in its own right, albeit a pretty offbeat one with its striking combination of orchestral flourishes, Bohemian folk and spooked, primitive electronic oddness. Perhaps a lot of the effect is down to familiarity with the original famous story but it's hard not to be swept away by the visual tide evoked in your mind while listening.
