Guns Akimbo - Enis Rotthoff | Music.Film  

Guns Akimbo—Original Motion Picture Soundtrack featuring music by Enis Rotthoff (Wetlands, The White Orchid) is out digitally via Music.Film and Varese Sarabande!  Rotthoff’s electronic score provides a wildly energized backdrop to the hilariously dark and violent action comedy.   

Says Rotthoff: “Working on this film has truly been a unique experience for me. It’s almost as if my 15-year-old self, growing up in the 80s and 90s, had time travelled to 2019 to help me realize this score.”

Starring Daniel Radcliffe (Swiss Army Man), the film is now playing in US theaters (get tickets).  See album listening links and the movie trailer below.

Knives And Skin: Nick Zinner And His Breakthrough Film Score | Under The Radar

Knives And Skin Soundtrack - Nick Zinner | Lakeshore Records

To be sure, people identify Zinner with his axe… The guitar is still present, but unlike the angular shards and shreds that punctured Yeah Yeah Yeahs tunes, meeting Karen O’s high pitched vocals that fluctuated between furious and innocent, they are delicate, resembling the batting of eyelashes. Along with other mesmeric uses of strings, they come in and out of the shoreline sands of synth like low tide.  – Charles Steinberg, Under The Radar

Under The Radar magazine goes in for a deep dive with Nick Zinner, the composer of Jennifer Reeder’s new thriller, Knives And SkinAnd if that name sounds familiar, he is indeed that Nick Zinner, the guitarist of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs.  But, Charles Steinberg wants us to understand that his score is not a Yeah Yeah Yeahs sound and Zinner’s efforts to push boundaries are evident, in this latest installment of his “Keeping Score” composer interview series over at Under The Radar.   A must-read!

Knives And Skin (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) is out now on Lakeshore Records!
