Hey all, we have an absolute corker of a release for you this week in the case of time-travel movie Synchronicity, and a couple of great distributed titles, too! As always, all new releases are available for sale on our website mondotees.com on Wednesdays at Noon CST.
Synchronicity - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack. Pressed on 180 Gram 'Into the Void' colored vinyl (transparent blue with solid black color in-color effect). Housed inside a 425 gsm gatefold jacket with obi & insert featuring liner notes by director Jacob Gentry. Art by Jay Shaw $25
Death Waltz Recording Company, in collaboration with Lakeshore Records, is thrilled to bring you one of 2016's best soundtracks, from a film you may not have heard of.
Sometimes I’ll hear a score and immediately know that it HAS to be released on Death Waltz Recording Company. I felt like this with Beyond the Black Rainbow back in 2013 and I feel just as strongly about Ben Lovett’s score for Synchronicity, a brooding glacial synth masterpiece and easily one of 2016’s best scores.
Every track is so jammed full sublime hooks and pulsing beats it is difficult to highlight individual titles, this is a record to be listened to in one sitting and then obsessed over the next 5 or 6, until the earworms contained within are very firmly located between your ears. You can hear shades of classic Carpenter here as well as prime Vangelis & Tangerine Dream but Lovett keeps it completely contemporary too, which ensures this has the feel of a past classic, but more importantly, the makings of a future one. I might sound like I am going over the top on this but this is so good it would be remiss of me if I didn’t point out the way to get to synth heaven for you. Also Jay Shaw KILLED it with this package and the vinyl looks beautiful too. See sometimes you can have EVERYTHING.
