This year, Lakeshore Records has curated a new playlist of select tracks featuring score cues by the world’s top and rising women composers! You may already know most of these talented individuals who have made a name for themselves in the film, television, and video game music worlds. You may have missed their latest soundtrack releases. In commemoration of International Women’s Day 2022, we invite you to take a listen and hopefully end up on a deep dive of discovery through these incredible composers’ discographies as this Spotify playlist is by no means a complete picture of all they have to offer. What soundtracks have you rediscovered below?
The [Elsewhere] record is a collection of atmospheric, guitar-driven instrumentals. The whole thing has a killer shoegaze vibe, like My Bloody Valentine with the sharp edges sanded down in a way that allows you to kick back and let the waves of distorted tone wash over you. [The Jejune Institute] music occasionally warps in interesting ways, sounding like it’s being played from a worn-out VHS tape or a cassette left in the back seat of your car for too long. The atmosphere built on this album is as compelling as its sister record, but achieved in such a completely different sound. – Under The Radar
If you’re someone that recently concluded the first season of Jason Segel’s AMC TV series, “Dispatches from Elsewhere,” you know the show is incredibly strange (in a good way). The mysterious, fantastical series doesn’t play by typical storytelling rules, and it appears that offbeat sensibility extends to the release of the scores, as well. Yes, scores, as in plural. – The Playlist

Featuring lyrics in both English and Japanese, the haunting yet soothing melody paints a noir-ish picture over its near-six minute runtime. – Austin Trunick, Under The Radar
