This week, Lakeshore Records is pleased to present two new soundtracks from new movie releases out now: Assassination Nation (score by Ian Hultquist) and The Song of Sway Lake (score by Ethan Gold), plus new album pre-orders you don’t really want to miss. Hint: one album is a remastered 30th anniversary edition!
“Hultquist takes an orchestral, synthwave composition and alters his track to a striking effect which seems to flow poignantly with Sam Levinson’s satirical horror film.” – Flaunt Magazine
Premiered at Sundance, Assassination Nation is Sam Levinson’s (Wizard of Lies) stylish new thriller starring Odessa Young, Hari Nef, Suki Waterhouse, and ABRA. The New York Times says of Assassination Nation, “It’s the demon spawn of Heathers and The Purge” and AP Entertainment says it’s the “Salem parable for the digital age.” Composer Ian Hultquist collaborates with Director Sam Levinson to produce a “terrifically moody score” (The Playlist).
NEON presents ASSASSINATION NATION, now playing in theaters (get tickets).
“Sway Lake (Lost Record Version)” sounds like it was ripped straight from a long-buried 78rpm record found in a grandparent’s attic trunk and freshly cleaned of five-plus decades’ worth of dust. John Grant, in a guest vocalist role, performs like a bona fide crooner of yesteryear: – Under The Radar
“A stunning film” – The Independent
Winner of 15 international film festival awards, Ari Gold’s The Song of Sway Lake stars Rory Culkin, Robert Sheehan, Isabelle McNally, Mary Beth Peil, Elizabeth Pena, and Jack Falahee. The film also features vocal performances by Brian Dennehy, John Grant and The Staves.
The Orchard presents THE SONG OF SWAY LAKE, in select theaters in New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco on Friday September 21, with a special Q&A in Los Angeles with Composer Ethan Gold and more (get details).

Heading into Halloween season, we wouldn’t be doing our job if we didn’t recommend Giona Ostinelli’s horror scores to two great Mickey Keating films, Darling and Carnage Park!
Carnage Park is also packed with technical achievements. The sepia color palette pairs perfectly with Keating’s shot selection and Giona Ostinelli’s score. Together, they manage to cover an especially impressive range between classic western heist flick and sheer nightmare. – Collider
