Digital New Releases:
THE SISTERS BROTHERS – [Download/Listen]
For such an unconventional western, Desplat found musical inspiration in jazz and blues and experimentalist John Cage. He avoided all brass and emphasized prepared piano, timpani drums, a pair of cimbaloms for bass, and electric violin (played by his wife and concert master, Dominique Lemonnier). – IndieWire
I am listening very curious and fascinated to a cue like “Two brothers, two friends” which is oddly satisfying on its own as well as it represents a strange take on the Western / Americana genre. – Soundtrack Dreams
New York Times Critic’s Pick and Venice Film Festival Silver Lion Best Director Winner The Sisters Brothers features score by Academy Award® winner Alexandre Desplat! This one-of-a-kind Western (Rolling Stone) Directed by Jacques Audiard (Un prophète, De battre mon coeur s’est arrêté) features a one-of-a-kind score from the Composer who won the Best Score Oscar® for The Shape of Water!

Vinyl New Releases:
BLACK MIRROR: ARKANGEL – [order]
Score by Mark Isham.
Isham takes an eerie approach that recalls his murderously suspenseful tones for “Kiss the Girls” and “Don’t Say a Word,” with the attacker being good intentions, and the victim privacy. – Daniel Schweiger, Film Music Magazine
His “Black mirror” contribution is once again a step forward in the development of this sound with the pulsating electronic rhythms and the subtle sound effects that make me think of nature, of sun, of spring, like the peaceful and dreamy opening of “Arkangel”, a cue that forays into the ambient genre. – Soundtrack Dreams
The wildly popular Black Mirror series on Netflix adds a Mark Isham score! From the episode directed by Jodie Foster, “Arkangel” (Season 4, Episode 2), Mark Isham brings us a cinematic score for the streaming series! Featuring artwork by Butcher Billy, the special vinyl release is available now through our partners at Fire Records!
HELLBOUND: HELLRAISER II – [order]
Score by Christopher Young.
Christopher Young’s Hellbound: Hellraiser II score arrives in time for Halloween! This second film to one of the most enduring horror film franchises ever is considered a formidable follow up to Hellraiser, the first film. In its 30th anniversary this year, Christopher Young has remixed and remastered his score just for this release!
HELLRAISER 30TH ANNIVERSARY (CASSETTE) – [order here]
Score by Christopher Young.
