Hey everyone! Our first music release of 2019 is THELMA on Death Waltz Recording Co. If you aren’t familiar, it’s an amazing Norwegian horror film that has a similar mood to LET THE RIGHT ONE IN; it’s unconventional, multi-layered and is just a visually beautiful film. The score by Ola Fløttum is absolutely stunning - beautiful melodic strings meet electronic drones that ebb and flow into really powerful (yet understated) crescendos.
In addition to the new release, this week we'll be re-stocking the soundtrack to A QUIET PLACE by Marco Beltrami.
And finally, we have two amazing Distributed Titles from our friends at Milan Records: THE BALLAD OF BUSTER SCRUGGS by Carter Burwell and WIDOWS by Hans Zimmer (featuring an all new song by Sade).
As usual, new releases go on sale on Wednesdays at NOON (CT) via mondotees.com.

DEATH WALTZ RECORDING CO.
THELMA - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack LP. Music by Ola Fløttum. Artwork by Candice Tripp. Pressed on 180 Gram White and Grey vinyl. Expected to Ship in January 2019. Ships Worldwide. $25
THELMA is a 2017 supernatural coming-of-age story directed by Joachim Trier that has just been tapped for a big budget studio remake from the team behind I, TONYA. The film centers around Thelma, a shy introvert that leaves her family behind to go and study in the city. She befriends Anja, an outgoing student, and the two have an immediate and intense attraction. To say more would ruin the film as its dark tale of love, loss, and supernatural abilities unfolds. The score by Ola Fløttum is full of starkly beautiful dark strings and mood pieces washed over with the occasional synth drone or texture. It’s absolutely haunting and captivating, and ranks as one of our favorite scores from the last few years. If you were a fan of LET THE RIGHT ONE IN you should immediately seek out THELMA as we are sure you’ll fall in love with it as much as we did.

A QUIET PLACE - Original Motion Picture Score LP
The score by Marco Beltrami is an absolute tour de force - it's basically another character in the film. It can be forceful and bludgeoning one minute and quiet and reflective the next. His players twist their instruments to generate tones and textures not usually associated with them; the layers of sound and percussion on display are incredible. Composed by Marco Beltrami. $25
THE BALLAD OF BUSTER SCRUGGS - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack LP. Released on Milan Records. Composed by Carter Burwell. Pressed on 180 Gram Black vinyl. Expected to Ship in January 2019. Ships Worldwide. $24
THE BALLAD OF BUSTER SCRUGGS features an original score composed by frequent Coen collaborator and Academy Award nominee Carter Burwell (NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN, ANOMALISA, CAROL). His compositions serve as the perfect companion to these tales of violence and fortune in the Wild West, and rank amongst his finest works. In addition to the film’s score, Burwell also composed a handful of original songs used in the film.
WIDOWS - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack LP. Released on Milan Records. Music by Hans Zimmer. Original song by Sade. Pressed on 180 Gram Black vinyl and housed in a euro-sleeve and dress jacket. Expected to Ship in January 2019. Ships Worldwide. $24
WIDOWS features an original score written by the legendary composer and Academy Award winner Hans Zimmer (THE DARK KNIGHT trilogy, GLADIATOR, INCEPTION). Zimmer has once again delivered a master class in modern composition with WIDOWS, crafting an intimate, minimalist score that is nevertheless urgent. The music slips beneath your skin and never lets go.
