Soundtracks are very much in vogue at the moment, so what better time for hairy-armed journeyman and frequent PJ Harvey collaborator John Parish to remind us of all the film music he’s done via this 19-track collection (27 on the LP version!) of music from ‘Little Black Spiders’, ‘Sister’, ‘Nowhere Man’ and ‘Plein Sud’.
Being soundtrack work, the pieces here are melodic, atmospheric instrumentals, often with a bit of a chamber feel that makes me think of the Ralfe Band’s marvellous ‘Bunny & The Bull’ score, but he does stretch his legs and get playful sometimes, be it with gritty guitar drones wibbling analogue synths or wordless rock’n’roll dirges, and actually the wealth of music contained on here is pretty overwhelming on first listen, flitting between genres and moods as suits the unseen images it’s been composed to accompany (none of which I’ve seen). It’s all very deftly arranged and tastefully put together as you would expect from a musician of Parish’s calibre, and since I don’t have time to dissect the various atmospheres and styles contained on here I’ll just assure you that it’s very good and highly recommended.
