Parallels and Futurecop! turn [“He Had A Good Time”] into something characteristic of their past collaborations, such as “Edge of the Universe” and “We Belong”: A dreamy and massive synth-driven expression layered in beautiful colors, galactic consciousness, and Holly Dodson’s staggeringly emotive vocals. – Vehlinggo

Severe, pale-eyed, handsome, Phil Burbank is brutally beguiling. All of Phil’s romance, power and fragility is trapped in the past and in the land: He can castrate a bull calf with two swift slashes of his knife; he swims naked in the river, smearing his body with mud. He is a cowboy as raw as his hides.

The year is 1925. The Burbank brothers are wealthy ranchers in Montana. At the Red Mill restaurant on their way to market, the brothers meet Rose, the widowed proprietress, and her impressionable son Peter. Phil behaves so cruelly he drives them both to tears, reveling in their hurt and rousing his fellow cowhands to laughter – all except his brother George, who comforts Rose then returns to marry her.

As Phil swings between fury and cunning, his taunting of Rose takes an eerie form – he hovers at the edges of her vision, whistling a tune she can no longer play. His mockery of her son is more overt, amplified by the cheering of Phil’s cowhand disciples. Then Phil appears to take the boy under his wing. Is this latest gesture a softening that leaves Phil exposed, or a plot twisting further into menace .

A See-Saw Films, Bad Girl Creek and Max Films production in association with Brightstar, The New Zealand Film Commission, Cross City Films and BBC Film, THE POWER OF THE DOG is produced by Jane Campion, Tanya Seghatchian, Emile Sherman, Iain Canning and Roger Frappier. The film will be released in select theaters November 17 before being released worldwide on Netflix December 1, 2021.

If you’ve been watching the new Apple TV+ Original Series, Wolfboy and the Everything Factory, then you may already be well-acquainted with the score by Xav Clarke.  For the full experience, watch this music video (below) featuring Clarke, who performs music from the “Labs Suite.”  The full soundtrack is out now on all major digital music services globally via Lakeshore Records.

Also read about how Clarke approached composing his score to this charming animated series over at Spitfire Audio

“I wanted to welcome people to the sonic world of The Everything Factory by performing music that fuses my roots as a member of a band, with a larger and more expansive sound that opens up the doors to step into the musical melting pot and beautiful dreamy madness of The Everything Factory!”

Full Soundtrack Available Now: [Download/Listen]

 

The 10-episode animated epic “Wolfboy and the Everything Factory” follows Wolfboy (voiced by Kassian Akhtar), an imaginative oddball who discovers a strange realm at the centre of the earth where fantastical beings called Sprytes create things for the natural world on the surface — clouds, trees, rabbits, dreams, hiccups, memories, time… everything! With his newfound Spryte friends, Wolfboy learns that not only can he use the creative energy of the Everything Factory to make his wild imagination come to life, but that he is destined to play a central role in an age-old battle between the forces of creation and destruction. Wolfboy soon comes to realize that being different is what makes him special — and ultimately, that it’s the oddballs and dreamers who change the world.

 

Wolfboy and the Everything Factory now streaming only on Apple TV+!
