The sure-to-be-cult-film Assassination Nation burned up the festival circuit last year before hitting theaters in September 2018. One key element to the film was the electronic film score courtesy of former Passion Pitt keyboardist Ian Hulquist. – Chris Evangelista, Slash Film
America: you asked for it! The good folks over at Slash Film have the exclusive premiere of the Assassination Nation – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack vinyl, featuring score by Ian Hultquist! The former Passion Pit band member is also known for scores to other feature films, such as A-X-L and Animals, released on Lakeshore Records. Check out the full spread now at Slash Films.

* 2X LP On ‘RAINCOAT RED Vinyl * Doublewide Album Sleeve * Includes the songs ‘Rage by Isabella “Machine“ Summers, ‘Brat’ by Abra and ‘We Can’t Stop’ by Jackson State University Marching Band, The “Sonic Boom of the South”
The score is by Passion Pitt’s’s former keyboard player and synthesist Ian Hultquist. It plays big on screen throughout the entire second half of the film, including extended sequences where it’s set to screen images for minutes at a time. This is the first truly contemporary electronic film score in some time that does not seek to duplicate the Stranger Things retro esthetic. Assassination Nation creates its own new and fresh contemporary electronic score that is both modern and very accessible to non-filmscore audiences in the same way that It Follows and Under The Skin did.
