Mondo, in partnership with Back Lot Music, is proud to present the soundtrack for the 2018 film THOROUGHBREDS, featuring the film’s original score, composed by Erik Friedlander.
Written and directed by Cory Finley, THOROUGHBREDS tells the darkly comic story of two teenage girls, Amanda and Lily (Olivia Cooke and Anya Taylor-Joy), who rekindle a friendship years after growing apart, bonding over Lily's contempt for her oppressive stepfather. As their friendship grows, they begin to bring out one another's most destructive tendencies. Their ambitions lead them to hire a local hustler, Tim (Anton Yelchin in his final performance), and take matters into their own hands to set their lives straight.
Featuring a driving, pulse-raising score by Erik Friedlander, and songs by King Harvest, A Tribe Called Red, Tanya Tagaq, The Sweet Hurt, Tanis (and more); the soundtrack is as unique and spellbinding as the film itself.
The Mondo webstore exclusive version of this soundtrack, limited to 600 copies, is pressed on 180 gram black and white "Checkered' vinyl.

Strange Disc Records proudly presents, for the first time on any format, the original soundtrack to POPCORN (1991).
This horror fan-favorite was directed & written by Alan Ormsby (DERANGED, CHILDREN SHOULDN'T PLAY WITH DEAD THINGS, CAT PEOPLE) and produced by veteran Bob Clark, responsible for iconic films such as BLACK CHRISTMAS (1974). POPCORN stars scream-queens Dee Wallace (THE HILLS HAVE EYES), Jill Schoelen (THE STEPFATHER) and Kelly Jo Minter (THE PEOPLE UNDER THE STAIRS). The film took inspiration from the rich history of the horror universe from the 1950s onwards and is both self-reflective as it is postmodern. POPCORN uses the ‘film-within-a-film’ theme and pays homage to horror’s long low-buget tradition. Released in theaters in 1991, it has gained a large cult-following since its release.
The sublime soundtrack was composed and performed by Paul Zaza who was responsible for scoring many horror-classics such as PROM NIGHT (1980) and MY BLOODY VALENTINE (1981) … and of course that huge hit movie we all know: PORKY'S. POPCORN was entirely shot in Jamaica, so on some tracks you can definitely sense the island flavor slipping into Paul’s eerie trademark sound.
A white-knuckle tale of transgression and transformation, REVENGE gloriously blurs the lines of vengeance and survival while simultaneously delivering a ferocious dissection of gender and genre. The score by ROB (MANIAC, HORNS, CAMPFIRE CREEPERS) delivers something that is brutal yet beautiful, unsettling yet melodic and ultimately masterful that proves he is working on a different level to almost every composer using synthesis today. $25
Death Waltz Recording Co., is proud to present the soundtrack to RAW with music by Jim Williams and artwork by Candice Tripp. Williams mixes mellow acoustic tracks filled with violin and piano that are serene and beautiful with huge baroque organ-led tracks that are intense and powerful. $30
