Kyle Dixon & Michael Stein – “Affluenza”

By Will Oliver, April 2nd 2019

Kyle Dixon & Michael Stein, half of Austin band S U R V I V E, have combined their powers to score Rashid Johnson’s directorial debut Native Son, which opened this year’s Sundance Film Festival.

Milan Records is set to release the score on April 5th and today we share the mesmerizing feature track “Affluenza,” which creates some magnetic and lush soundscapes that fully engulf you into the mood and texture of the film, even without seeing a single frame. Certainly a sign of a job well done.

Native Son will be released by HBO Films and A24 on April 5th, with a debut on HBO that day.

Enjoy a listen to “Affluenza” below.

Disasterpeace – “Dependable As Moonshine”

By Will Oliver, March 12th 2019

Film composer Richard Vreeland, better known as Disasterpeace recently scored the film for director David Robert Mitchell’s Under The Silver Lake, which will be released next month via A24. We previously shared a piece entitled “The Curse of Edendale” and today we hit back with another new one “Dependable As Moonshine.”

The dark and haunting orchestra track takes you on quite a journey, changing moods and putting some wild imagery in your head with some dark jazz-inspired inspiration that definitely leaves an impression.

English indie outfit Tindersticks took on the task of creating the score of Claire Denis’ new film High Life, starring Robert Pattinson. This includes a brand new song entitled “Willow” that features Pattison himself, a song that can be found on the film’s soundtrack when it’s released on April 5th via Milan Records, also the same date the film opens in limited release in both New York and Los Angeles via A24.

The haunting new track is a beautiful hypnotic listen, one that definitely captures the ethereal mood of the film, one that is a pretty wild journey, if we do say so ourselves (we caught it last October at the New York Film Festival). It also proves that Pattinson really can do it all.

Enjoy a listen to “Willow” below.

By Will Oliver, November 4th 2018

Film composer Richard Vreeland, better known as Disasterpeace, really took off with his amazing synth-led score of David Robert Mitchell’s acclaimed 2014 horror film It Follows.

They’ve teamed up once again for Mitchell’s upcoming film Under The Silver Lake which was originally supposed to come out this December but has been since moved to April 19, 2019.

But we get a taste of Disasterpeace’s original score for the film with the brooding new orchestral track “The Curse of Edendale,” which you can stream right now below. This should tide you over a bit until the film is finally released next spring.
