THE POLKA KING (ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK) – get it here
Music by The Jack Black Polka Band and Jan Lewan & His Orchestra.
Black is no stranger to music as half of the hilarious duo Tenacious D, and this taste of the upcoming soundtrack includes a dash of the comedic chops he honed with that group. – Philip Cosores, Uproxx
THE POLKA KING premieres January 12 on Netflix.
Score by Adam Lastiwka.
Sometimes it goes into a territory I like to call Darkwave, where it has a little retro viboe going on coupled with dark sci-fi untertones like ‘On Spiritual Machines’. This score has a little bit of everything for everyone who loves synth music. – Soundtrack Geek
All episodes of TRAVELERS now streaming on Netflix.
LADY BIRD (ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK) – order here
Score by Jon Brion.
Jon Brion’s score sets the tone of the film from the moment it begins. What a fine piece of work this is. – Leonard Maltin
A24 presents LADY BIRD, now playing in theaters (get tickets)!
