New Soundtracks: ‘Forging The Beast’ By Johann Johannsson For ‘MANDY’, Dog Days By Craig Wedren and Matt Novack + More!

This week, gear up for new Lakeshore Records releases such as the latest single out with the highly-anticipated pre-order for the Mandy soundtrack (score by Johann Johannsson), Dog Days (score by Craig Wedren and Matt Novack), plus more digital release surprises! 

DIGITAL NEW RELEASES:

 

“FORGING THE BEAST” FROM MANDY SOUNDTRACK – [Download/Listen]
Score by Johann Johannsson.

“Mandy doesn’t have a heavy metal soundtrack (though its soundtrack is an incredible hodgepodge of eerie brooding synths), but it is a total heavy metal movie, filled with panel-van airbrush imagery, cultist weirdos, and a group of bikers that seem inspired by Cenobites in the best way possible (they also have their very own drug, and when Cage takes a taste it is a sight to behold). This movie even has animated sequences and a chainsaw duel.” – BirthMoviesDeath 

“Cosmatos is the dominating force for “Mandy”‘s avant-garde horror first half, relishing demonic synth music cues (from Johann Johannsson) and establishing many characters as mysterious, rambling beings of an insidious universe. ”
-RogerEbert.com

Ahead of the Mandy full album release on September 14, you can now listen or download the single, “Forging The Beast” from Johann Johannsson’s score!  If your sample listening of this single as well as “Children of the New Dawn” released last month is driving you crazy, be comforted that the full album is now on pre-order from Lakeshore and Invada Records!!  When you pre-order on Apple Music and iTunes, you get two instant-grat tracks and an exclusive Bonus Track!

 

DOG DAYS – [Download/Listen]
Score by Craig Wedren and Matt Novack with songs featuring Jasmine Cephas Jones. 

“When We Were Older,” which is a nice dose of string and harmonica laden indie folk.. It’s got a little of a Paul Simon vibe, and it’s very worth hearing.  – Andrew Sacher, Brooklyn Vegan

Subscribers of Film Music Daily who have been following Craig Wedren’s career ever since hearing his single in The Invitation soundtrack will be very pleased to get a full album of score by this artist on a new project! Wedren, who got his start fronting avant-punk pioneers Shudder To Think.  Together with Matt Novack, his ensemble Pink Ape and songs featuring Hamilton’s Jasmine Cephas Jones, the soundtrack to Dog Days is set to be your new favorite album for repeated listening!

LD Entertainment presents DOG DAYS, in theaters Wednesday, August 8!

 

 

DIGITAL PRE-ORDER:

 

MANDY – [Pre-order the album]
Score by Johann Johannsson.

Mandy Soundtrack - Score by Johann Johannsson | Lakeshore and Invada Records“The soundtrack is equally highly worked, though dominated by Oscar-nommed Icelandic composer Johann Johansson’s original score, which sports a variety of textures apt for a movie that often feels like a vintage prog-metal concept album illustrated.” – Variety 

“The grainy 16mm imagery, a vibrant mixture of neon hues and shadows set to Johan Johansson’s disorienting score, suggests a gothic fantasy unfolding within the confines of a heavy-metal poster.” -IndieWire

“Mandy doesn’t have a heavy metal soundtrack (though its soundtrack is an incredible hodgepodge of eerie brooding synths), but it is a total heavy metal movie, filled with panel-van airbrush imagery, cultist weirdos, and a group of bikers that seem inspired by Cenobites in the best way possible (they also have their very own drug, and when Cage takes a taste it is a sight to behold). This movie even has animated sequences and a chainsaw duel.”

“Cosmatos is the dominating force for “Mandy”‘s avant-garde horror first half, relishing demonic synth music cues (from Johann Johannsson) and establishing many characters as mysterious, rambling beings of an insidious universe. “- RogerEbert.com

Critics can’t get enough of Mandy, the highly-anticipated film by visionary director Panos Cosmatos!  The film features a “bat-shit insane” Nicolas Cage, Andrea Riseborough in the title role, and Linus Roache as the villain “Jeremiah Sand.”  Also featured is Johann Johannsson’s posthumous final score.

RLJE presents MANDY, in theaters and VOD September 14!
