Mondo, in conjunction with Studio Ponoc, is proud to present a limited-edition vinyl pressing of the full-length soundtrack to their debut feature-length animated film: MARY AND THE WITCH'S FLOWER.

For those unfamiliar, MARY AND THE WITCH'S FLOWER is the premiere film from all new animation company STUDIO PONOC. Directed by Studio Ghibli alum Hiromasa Yonebayashi (THE SECRET WORLD OF ARRIETTY & WHEN MARNIE WAS THERE), the film is absolutely gorgeous and painstakingly detailed with inventive imagery. The score for MARY AND THE WITCH'S FLOWER is as artfully composed and precise as the film itself - triumphant, lush and always bright.

Composed and produced by Takatsugu Muramatsu, featuring an original song by SEKAI NO AWARI and original artwork by Tom Whalen.

For people attending San Diego Comic-Con, we will have 500 copies of this limited-edition release, pressed on 2X 180 Gram Glow-in-the-Dark Blue vinyl with an exclusive Japanese OBI strip.

BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack 2XLP. Music Composed by John Carpenter in association with Alan Howarth. Original Artwork by Phantom City Creative. San Diego Comic-Con Exclusive pressed on 2X 180 Gram Clear Lightning Bolt colored vinyl. Limited to 500 copies. $35

Mondo is proud to present the complete original soundtrack to John Carpenter's '80s classic BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINAavailable on vinyl for the first time in over 30 years. Featuring original artwork by Phantom City Creative and re-mastered for vinyl by James Plotkin.

The score to BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINAcomposed by John Carpenter in association with Alan Howarth, is an outlier in Carpenter's filmography - a heavy pulsing synth-score that is simultaneously upbeat and haunting. A true genre mashup; both the film and the score are difficult to pin down, which makes their singularity all the more apparent.

MONDO
CASTLEVANIA: RONDO OF BLOOD - Original Video Game Soundtrack 2XLP. Re-mastered and available for the first time on vinyl and features all new artwork by Oliver Barrett. San Diego Comic-Con Exclusive pressed on 2X 180 Gram Translucent Red & Blue split vinyl. Limited to 250 copies. $35

Mondo is thrilled to premiere the next in our on-going CASTLEVANIA soundtrack series, with the PC-Engine title CASTLEVANIA: RONDO OF BLOOD, and the game's Super Nintendo port CASTLEVANIA: DRACULA X. San Diego Comic-Con attendies will be the first to gain access to this re-issue with this SUPER limited color-way, exclusive to the convention.

Originally released only in Japan on the PC-Engine (a system known in the US as the TurboGrafx-16), RONDO OF BLOOD is one of the most widely missed chapters of the CASTLEVANIA saga. Better known now as the "prequel" to the hugely popular and influential title CASTLEVANIA: SYMPHONY OF THE NIGHT (the first level of which is a re-creation of the final battle of RONDO OF BLOOD), the story follows Richter Belmont - descendent of Simon and Trevor on his journey to save his girlfriend and her little sister Maria from the clutches of Dracula.

The game was eventually ported to the Super Nintendo Entertainment System a few years later - but due to the limitations of the hardware, the port of RONDO OF BLOOD was re-made and re-named CASTLEVANIA: DRACULA X - a streamlined and more linear version of the game, featuring a soundtrack better suited to the system's capabilities. 

MONDO
ADVENTURE TIME 7-INCH SINGLE. Pressed on "Jake The Dog" Yellow vinyl and featuring artwork JJ Harrison. Featuring the songs "Friends Don't Fight" and "Manlorette Party." Limited to 1,500 copies. $12
