The approach that Dixon and Stein take with their work on Butterfly underscores a shift for them: it sounds far different from their Stranger Things work. (Aaron’s Note: If anything, it’s more Cliff Martinez or Johnny Jewel than John Carpenter, but I’ll let them describe the shift.) – Vehlinggo
Premiering today on Vehlinggo is the track, “A Long Way To Go” by Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein for the forthcoming Butterfly – Original Series Soundtrack! The Primetime EMMY-winning and GRAMMY-nominated composer duo are known for their scores to the hit Netflix series “Stranger Things” and the Darren Aronofsky-produced Spheres VR film. The album releases March 22 digitally worldwide on Lakeshore Records, but you can listen to the track only at Vehlinggo now.
With a pedigree that includes being the son of a Kink and working with one of horror movies’ greatest composers, Davies has made a chilling soundtrack of his own – Rolling Stone
If you have yet to dive into Daniel Davies’ new solo album, Events Score, then have a listen to “Shadows Alive” now at Rolling Stone! Reviewer Kory Grow says, “the LP’s first single, begins with an eerie, brittle repeated phrase that owes a debt to the Halloween theme and Mike Oldfield’s “Tubular Bells” (the theme from The Exorcist) and it gradually expands into a lush, ominous work of its own. It’s beautiful in its otherworldliness..”
Read up on the review and be sure to add Daniel’s album to your horror playlist.
Are you simply dying to see Alice Lowe’s killer fetus slasher flick, Prevenge? While the film opens on March 24 in select New York and Los Angeles theaters, folks not in those cities can stream the film on “the Netflix of horror” platform, Shudder. And, if you happen to know someone in the family who is pregnant, she can get a free ticket to see the movie in New York City! Get details at UPROXX.
“From the appreciably fast-paced editorial approach and Lowe’s powerhouse lead performance to a fantastic musical score (by Toydrum) and enough compelling subtext to fill three genre flicks, there’s enough intelligence and dark wit on display here to call Prevenge the best horror film of its sort since Mary Harron’s wonderfully twisted American Psycho” – Scott Weinberg, Nerdist

The duo’s re-score to Night of the Living Dead perfectly captures the film’s threatening mood while still working as a chillingly effective stand-alone album. We talked with the duo about how they created the score, and the synths they used in the process. – J. Edward Keyes, Bandcamp Daily
