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.
The special The Rise of the Synths soundtrack on retro-tastic cassette format! This soundtrack features score by Robin Ogden (aka OGRE) from the wildly-popular, fan-supported synthwave / synth music documentary! Grab it at the Lakeshore Records webshop (sorry, US addresses only for now).
