For this year’s Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, we recognize composers from these communities who have released film and television scores over the years. Are you a fan of Nathan Matthew David (Slice), Aska Matsumiya (37 Seconds, I’m Your Woman, Selah and The Spaces), Vivek Maddala (Asian Americans), Gingger Shankar (And She Could Be Next), Amritha Vaz (“Home“), or Wendy Wang (Man Up)? If these soundtracks below have slipped your radar, we’ve provided links and music players for you. Also, be sure to watch the associated films which span from drama to documentary to comedy.
Lakeshore Records is very pleased to release Man Up (Original Motion Picture Score) — available now digitally! The album features score by Wendy Wang of the band The Sweet Hurt. See soundtrack details below. Off The Dock and Supergravity Pictures present a Kinetic Films production, Man Up, a comedy film starring Kevin Wu (YouTube’s “KevJumba”) and Justin Chon (Twilight, 21 & Over).
I saw Man Up a few months ago at CAAMFest, and Justin Chon’s directorial debut is so idiotically funny, in the spirit of movies like Dumb and Dumber, I found myself letting my guard down and thoroughly enjoying the heck out of it. The cast also includes Galadriel Stineman, Samantha Futerman, Amy Hill and Michael Wu (Kev’s dad). And bonus: an awesome score by Wendy Wang of The Sweet Hurt. –Angry Asian Man
