For synth aficionados, every day is synth day. However, September (aka Synthtember) is a particularly great month for celebrating the best of synth scores, music from soundtracks and compositions inspired by the cinematic experience. If you’re a dedicated follower of Lakeshore Records, then you were among the first to be notified of two special announcements for your listening pleasure.
Daniel Davies’ forthcoming Events Score album will be released digitally on August 31 via Lakeshore Records! It was just announced this week the album will also be available on cassette and vinyl from our friends at Burning Witches (UK), and in addition, the vinyl is being stocked at Two Headed Dog in the U.S.!
“One 60 Clone,” a more sci-fi–leaning effort that maintains a classic feel while leaning on elements of power electronics and ambient music. It’s cinema for the ear, and incredibly beautiful and sinister at the same time. – Revolver
This week, coincidentally, we’re releasing soundtracks that feature people coming back to life! Jeff Russo’s score to cyberpunk masterpiece Altered Carbon is now available widely on all digital music services; zom-com Dead Shack gets two soundtrack releases (plus a cassette), all music by Canadian Indie-electro duo HUMANS; Peter Ricq’s score to Winchester will haunt you!
