Music Weekly: SUMMER OF '84 by Le Matos + Distributed Titles!

Hello All! This week we are thrilled to bring you a brand new soundtrack from our friends Le Matos. SUMMER OF '84 is from the creative team that bought us TURBO KID and features the same irreverent mix of humor and horror, but this time the film has an undercurrent of darkness. You can check out SUMMER OF '84 in select theaters right now, and when it hits VOD on August 24th. To find a screening near you, head to summerof84movie.com.

We also have two new Distributed Titles from our friends at Burning Witches Records by Deadly Avenger and Luke Insect, along with One Way Static Records' Cannibal Ferox.

As usual, new releases go on sale on Wednesdays at NOON (CT) via mondotees.com!

NEW THIS WEEK


DEATH WALTZ RECORDING CO.
SUMMER OF '84 - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack 2XLP. Music by Le Matos. Artwork by Sam Turner. Pressed on 2X 180 Gram BMX Blood Splatter vinyl (Silver and Red Splatter). Note: This is a pre-order. All orders containing this item will not ship until early November 2018. $35

Death Waltz Recording Co., is proud to present the soundtrack to the film SUMMER OF '84, a killer '80s throwback of BMX, mullets and serial killers from the people who brought you TURBO KID and featuring an amazing original score by Le Matos.

Taking familiar tropes from the history of electronic music (John Carpenter, Daft Punk, Tangerine Dream), Le Matos (TURBO KID, JOIN US) infuse the soundtrack with so much energy and originality that they end up being totally singular in the world of electronic music. We really can't think of another outfit operating on the same level right now. 

SUMMER OF '84 features dizzying electro joints, super chilled ambient pieces and straight up horror-soundtrack scares! Pressed across 2XLPs, this is an essential score for fans of synth soundtracks.

DISTRIBUTED TITLES


DISTRIBUTED TITLES
WHEN HARRO MET SALLY BY Deadly Avenger and Luke Insect (Burning Witches Records). Pressed on Sunshine Yellow vinyl. Limited to 300 copies. In-house and ready to ship. $27

WHEN HARO MET SALLY is the soundtrack to Deadly Avenger and Luke Insect's imagined youth; over one seemingly endless summer when teenage heartbreak ruled supreme, when everything American seemed cool, and all we did from dusk 'til dawn was dream about girls and ride our bikes. 

Spanning early '80s VHS soundtracks, teenage-electro, heartbreak synths and Italo Disco, WHEN HARO MET SALLY will transport you back to that endless sun-baked teenage summer...that none of us ever had. 


DISTRIBUTED TITLES
CANNIBAL FEROX - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack LP (One Way Static Records). This release features the original 1981 score plus four additional bonus tracks. Also included is an insert containing exclusive and extensive liner notes by Giovanni Lombardo Radice, Roberto Donati and Robert Kerman. Black and Blue Swirl vinyl. Limited to 300 copies. Note: This item is a pre-order. $27

Like many of the Italian cannibal films, the soundtrack is just as powerful and effective as the disturbing butchery. The use of funk guitar, bass, rock piano and synthesizer makes for a fun yet still powerful sound. It’s '70s recklessness with an '80s sensibility; perfect for a film that rides the line between two decades. Surprisingly funky and light-hearted, then again, there are cues which are genuinely mean and foreboding, serving as an essential piece that makes the film a pulse-pounding inferno of death.

PRE-ORDER UPDATES

We currently have a few titles on pre-order and want to give a quick update on the status on those: MARVEL'S SPIDER-MAN and PROFONDO ROSSO are on target to begin shipping Mid-September, and A QUIET PLACE will begin shipping Mid-October. Our HALLOWEEN Box Sets are landing this week and will begin shipping immediately. We appreciate your patience!
