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.

Who’s ready for another round of Fake The Soundtrack Review? Here I am, woefully ill-informed on the content and narrative of film thing ‘Camino’: judging on the particular second of Kreng’s music I’m currently intaking, I imagine it’s about an old dude who has to fix up his mate’s organ, but mate in question keeps knocking on the door and asking if it’s fixed yet. Then a rainstorm happens and a big The End sign fades in, shortly followed by a question mark. Warner Brothers hire me.
Kreng’s music is so much more than I can handle. Even at its most steadfast droney, it’s used as part of a grand opera, as on the doom-crushed ‘Summoner’. You could listen to a couple of tracks from his score for ‘Cooties’ and be utterly baffled by the ever-changing music boxery, and the same could be said of ‘Camino’: at turns it can deploy ambient rumination, at others deadpan piano twinkles that recall Hauschka with none of his toys. There are full-on organ pieces; there’s hateful door-shuttering noise a la Prurient. And Kreng, ever a secret humorist, even employs those horror-cliched string crescendos that have haunted (lol) this corner of cinema. As ever, it’s a wonderful showcasting of Kreng’s talents, in what I imagine was the Krengiest film of 2015.
