It’s been a year of reinvention, says The AV Club of the film scores out in 2018. Both the compositions of Johann Johannsson (Mandy) and Jonny Greenwood (You Were Never Really Here) — which made their tightly-curated 10 Best Film Scores of 2018 list — may fit the bill or their scores are just so special that it defies the typical film music critic descriptors. Lakeshore Records (together with Invada Records in the UK) released both of these critically-acclaimed scores, and you can find them now on Digital, CD and vinyl, worldwide. See the full list at The AV Club.
Mandy marked a new musical direction for Jóhannsson, one that pulls the seemingly contradictory aural impulses of lush synthesizer romance, cold percussive menace, and harsh buzzsaw guitars into one doom metal-influenced ambient whole that sets your whole body abuzz with blissful waves of ecstatic noise.
