We The Animals: An Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

    The limited edition super-deluxe vinyl format is pressed onto 100% virgin vinyl in a custom Yellow-White-Clear March-Up color mix. The records is packaged in a full-color gatefold jacket, and includes a full-sized 28-page full-color diary, and an original hand-numbered animation print cell from the We The Animals film production. The soundtrack to the massively acclaimed, aware-winning motion picture, We The Animals. We The Animals has received near-unanimous acclaim (91% on Rotten Tomatoes), and the soundrack has been praised as an integral part of the film’s profound resonance. We The Animals is the award-winning new film from Jeremiah Zagar (In A Dream). Based on the best-selling novel by Justin Torres, We The Animals is Zagar’s first narrative feature.

    It reunites Zagar with Nick Zammuto, the renowned composer and co-founder of beloved collage-pop pioneers, the Books. Inspired by the film’s setting in rural upstate New York – and influenced by the early ambient electronic music that galvanized the Books two decades ago – Zammuto pairs that earthen, wooded isolation with dynamic pulses of customized electronics and sparse, crystalline layers of melodic soft synths. The juxtaposition is arresting, and gives the soundtrack a unique heft befitting of its subject matter – and betraying of its minimal instrumentation. Beautifully edited and sequenced to act as both a companion to the film and a standalone album, We The Animals: An Original Motion Picture Soundtrack is as subtle as it is startling, and succeeds in making even the heaviest emotions feel momentarily weightless

      Sven Libaek

      Inner Space

        Sven Libaek’s 'Inner Space' is, simply put, one of the most legendary soundtrack recordings in the history of Australian music. Released in 1973, soundtracking a documentary series on underwater life by Ron & Valerie Taylor, it now stands proud as a key album of ‘underwater music’, one of the most rightly and righteously revered fields within soundtrack and library music circles. Endlessly inventive, gorgeously melodic, at times oceanic, at times amphibian, at other times in some mysterious pelagic zone, Inner Space sits proudly alongside such classic underwater soundtracks and libraries as Egisto Macchi’s Fauna Marina, the Sonoton Underwater Music series, the Ittologia and Biologia Marina twin-set, and Danielle Patucchi’s 'Men Of The Sea', Alla Scoperti Del Mare and Uomini E Squali. Considered to be one of the unsung masters of Australian Film music, Sven Libaek composed for many Australian Films and TV series in 1960’s and 70’s. 'Inner Space' is considered amongst his finest. Featuring the best Australian jazz musicians including Don Burrows, John Sangster, George Golla and Errol Buddle, they masterfully range from the incidental to the improvisational as they create a whirlpool of sublime aquatic jazz exotica. Notably, in 2004 the soundtrack had a second lease on life when several tracks were used in the Wes Anderson film. ‘The life aquatic with Steve Zizzou’.

        Juvenile Delinquent’s Jukebox gathers together tracks (91 on 3xCD / 36 on 2xLP) featured in the films of John Waters. “To me, bad taste is what entertainment is all about”, opines Waters. “If someone vomits watching one of my films, it’s like getting a standing ovation. But one must remember that there is such a thing as good bad taste and bad bad taste.” From as early as Mondo Trasho (1969), the American film director has made substantial use of the music of his youth, music that ranges from wholesome ’50s popular vocalists, to rhythm & blues, doo wop, rock & roll and the dance crazes of the early ’60s. Early pop authority Lucky Parker has compiled 91 examples for Juvenile Delinquent’s Jukebox, as well as providing a fascinating essay, which charts Waters’ formative years and his early experiments with short film, leading to notoriety with transgressive cult movies like Pink Flamingos and eventual mainstream success with Hairspray and Cry-Baby.

        Whether it be as film director, screenwriter, actor, author, stand-up comedian, visual artist or art collector, the perennially pencil-moustachioed John Waters has been pushing the boundaries of good taste and poking fun at America’s idealised image of itself for over fifty years. Given the furore which surrounded his notorious breakthrough feature, Pink Flamingos, it’s almost inconceivable that Waters has so seamlessly infiltrated mainstream pop culture - albeit unintentionally, with multi-million dollar-grossing movies such as the family friendly Hairspray - to become respectable. Drawing on seven of his celebrated movies, Juvenile Delinquent’s Jukebox serves as both a soundtrack to his extraordinary oeuvre, and also a rollercoaster ride through the popular music – at turns wholesome, rebellious and frivolous - of the ’50s and ’60s.


        Val Stephen

        Abstractum: The Electrogenic Music Of Val Stephen

          A lost collection of home studio tape manipulations and VCS3 synthesizer experiments from the unsung Australian composer Val Stephen. A practising medical anaesthetist turned electronic music innovator, Stephen's study of tape music originates back as early as the 1950s.

          Throughout the following decades he created a remarkable personal archive of uncharted electronic compositions and experimental music sketches using a range of resourceful tools and pioneering techniques.

          With only two of his compositions ever published (Folkways - Electronic Music. 1967) ABSTRACTUM is an amazing look into the previously undocumented world of this silent innovator. A hallucinogenic hybrid of sedated synthesis & primordial Musique Concrete that will appeal to those interested in experimental music such as Basil Kirchin's Worlds Within Worlds and Pierre Henry's Le Voyage.


          Marty Manning & His Orchestra

          The Twilight Zone

            Originally out in 1960, this LP sees Manning and his orchestra mixing up woodwind, piano, guitar, percussion, vocals (by Lois Hunt) and electronic 'sorcery' (say the sleeve notes!) to make music for the cult sci-fi TV show. A must for fans of exotica LPs!

            Limited edition of 300 copies. Marty Manning was perhaps the most-sought-after arranger and conductor among pop singers on the New York studio scene, but to Space Age Pop fans, he's best known for his album inspired by Rod Serling's great television series, "The Twilight Zone." Manning's The Twilight Zone featured new recordings of a variety of space-oriented tunes, with New York instead of L.A. session musicians, but those details have never seemed to matter to the fans who continue to scarf up copies of this record seconds after they hit the shelves.

            Howlin' Wolf

            Message To The Young

              1971 marked a tumultuous yet historic year for Chicago blues legend Howlin’ Wolf. His health failing after suffering a second heart attack, doctor’s discovered his kidneys were also shutting down and he was ordered on dialysis to save his life. Wolf's doctors demanded that the legend quit performing at all costs, but the legendary blues musician did not have any quit in him. Three months after being ordered never to perform again he was headlining opening night at the Ann Arbor Blues Festival. 1971 also marked the release of Howlin’ Wolf’s second experimental offering, “Message To The Young”. Oft-considered his second attempt (after the “Howlin’ Wolf Album” he famously shunned) at offering the masses a “psychedelic” record, the sound on the record ranges from acid-rock, to blues, to funk, and back again. The title track on “Message To The Young” is exactly what the title suggests; Wolf’s attempt at reaching the youth of the era in a beautiful spoken word ballad which can easily be summed up in two words “Be Yourself”. Get On Down’s reputation for high quality reissues continues with Message to the Young, originally released on the newly formed Chess Grt label, a subsidiary of legendary imprint Chess Records. This all new Get On Down version features audio painstakingly remastered from the original master recordings for a true high definition sound experience.

              Impossibles

              Hot Pepper

                The rise to fame of the talented Impossibles is one which will never be described as such. Historically regarded as a legendary and iconic 70s era string-pop band in their native land of Thailand, the Impossibles became well known internationally for their covers of Western rock songs. Having become nationally recognized in 1970 after winning the Thai Musicians Award for best professional band in the country (an award they would win the next two years), the Impossibles knew that they could ride their wave of success to international heights. In 1972 they left Thailand for an engagement in Honolulu, Hawaii – the one off gig turned into a year long string of performances, followed by a seventh month European tour - a move which raised the stature of the Impossibles to international fame. In 1975, the Impossibles became the first band in the history of Thailand to sign a recording contract with an international firm (Phonogram). “Hot Pepper” - an all English language recording, was also the first such album recorded overseas by a Thai pop group. In addition to rock and pop, the band's sound frequently crossed over into funk, R&B, country and folk. Two covers of Kool and the Gang tracks ("Give It Up" and Love The Life You Live") appear on their heralded 1975 album “Hot Pepper”. Get On Down is proud to present The Impossibles 1975 album “Hot Pepper” featuring audio completely remastered from the original audio tapes.

                Following the great reception of “Hiverned 01” here's the second installment of Hivern's edit series.

                In the A Side, TB's “Invitation To Love”, a highly anticipated track that's finally released after becoming a fixture in John Talabot's sets. Based on Twin Peaks OST's “Laura Palmer's Theme”, the track rephrases Angelo Badalamenti's clas- sic from an acid house perspective. Adding analog rhythms and a crispy bassli- ne to the ethereal chords of the original composition, this refix manages to keep the dream-like atmospheres of the song while transforming it into dancefloor- ready groove. The idea is simple, the results are magic.

                On the flip, Marc Piñol repeats appearance on the series revamping some lost australian minimal-wave track. In the vein of his previous “Wheels” edit, the track conjures gloomy atmospheres and sparse rhythms with gritty synth melodies. On the top of it, the barcelonian producer adds dialogues from spanish cult art- house film “Arrebato” (hence the title) multiplying the obscure ambience of the tune.

                Once again, the release comes in a limited edition 10” wrapped in a handmade silk-screened sleeve. No digital and no-repress.

                Buddy Holly & The Crickets

                The "Chirping" Crickets

                  Lubbock, Texas' most celebrated sons, Buddy Holly and his group, The Crickets, released this, their debut album way back in 1957. Though it's nearly 60 years old, the sounds are familiar to most everyone who has not been living under a rock. If you want only one taste of the pure and true brilliance of Buddy Holly, this record is it. Its track listing reads almost like a greatest hits album, "Oh Boy!", "Not Fade Away", "Maybe Baby", "That'll Be The Day", are all found on this LP. Buddy would be dead less than two years later, in that infamous plane crash February 3, 1959, "The Day The Music Died", but his music lives on, immortal. Essential American rock and roll staples on Rumble.

                    I Ribelli

                    I Ribelli

                      I Ribelli were an italian band originally set as Adriano Celentano's accompanying group. They soon become a powerful Beat band featuring the amazing vocals of the late Demetrio Stratos.

                      This album, originally released in 1968 via Ricordi, is a collection of great songs which includes their hit single Pugni Chiusi and an incerdible version of the Supremes' hit You Keep Me Hangin' On (Chi Mi Aiuterà).

                      Never properly reissued since its 1968 release, excluding a cheap re-release on Ricordi's own budget line Orizzonte to cash on Demetrio Stratos' success with Area, this is one album you can't really miss.

                      Original artwork. Sound restoring and master done by Roberto Zamori at Film Music Art Studio.

                      Egisto Macchi

                      Pittura Contemporanea - Pittura Moderna N.1 & 2

                        Coming in a luxurious box with hard cover on canvas like a painting, this new Cinedelic production rediscovers 3 rare 70s gems of Maestro Egisto Macchi. Born in Grosseto, Macchi studied in Rome composition, piano, violin and singing with, among others, Roman Vlad and Hermann Scherchen, and Human Physiology at the Università La Sapienza. Since the late fifties Macchi has been active in organizing music, in collaboration with a group of musicians (Franco Evangelisti, Domenico Guaccero, Daniele Paris), to whom he was bound by strong friendship. Along with Dominic Guaccero, Daniele Paris and Antonino Titone, he was among the editors of the magazine "Ordini", which appeared in 1959. With Bertoncini, Bortolotti, Clementi, De Blasio, Evangelists, Guaccero, Paris, Pennisi, Franco Nonnis, Macchi founded in 1960 the Association of New Consonance, on whose board he has repeatedly been a part, also holding the position of President from 1980 to 1982 and in 1989. Following the ANC was the dawn of the activities of Settimane Internazionali di Nuova Musica of Palermo. After giving life with Domenico Guaccero to the Teatro Musicale di Roma, Macchi was one of the founders of Studio R7 – an electronic laboratory for experimental music born in Rome in 1967. In the same year he was one of the members of the Gruppo d'Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza founded in 1964 by Franco Evangelisti. Macchi’s time in the 70s was mainly dedicated to experimentations in library music and film scores. Among the most noteworthy soundtracks he made at the time were for the label AYNA, which gave him full artistic freedom. From that catalogue, Cinedelic is reissuing together the LP PITTURA CONTEMPORANEA (CONTEMPORARY PAINTING) and the double LP PITTURA MODERNA 1 & 2 (MODERN PAINTING 1 & 2) released in 1975. Remastered from the original master tapes in a hard-shell case with canvas cover / 3 LP. Limited Numbered Deluxe Edition of 600 copies.

                        George Duning / Ned Washington

                        The Naked City OST

                          “The Naked City” album is the musical portrait of a city. It’s a bold portrait told in striking, vivid tone colors, bringing to life the throbbing intensity of a great metropolis and its people. It’s a musical portrait with the pulse-pounding rhythm of the city’s heartbeat and melodies drawn from the dreams, the triumphs, the tragedies of the people (...)”

                          Naked City is a police drama series which aired from 1958 to 1963 on the ABC television network. It was inspired by the 1948 motion picture The Naked City and mimics its dramatic “semi-documentary” format and filmed on location in New York City.

                          Ned Washington, author of the lyrics and narrative for “The Naked City” album, is one of the best known and most honored musical collaborators on the Hollywood scene.

                          Nelson Riddle

                          The Untouchables OST

                            “Nelson Riddle’s score does a great deal to create the undercurrent of excitement that characterizes our show. It is music with a heartbeat that captures perfectly the suspense and impending violence of the action.”
                            Robert Stack - Original liner notes

                            Robert Stack, winner of an Emmy Award for his fine portrayal of Eliot Ness the Chicago gangbuster and prohibition agent in “The Untouchables” the legendary American crime TV drama that ran from 1959 to 1963 on the ABC Television Network.

                            Nelson Riddle one of the great and original composers of the ‘50’s working with such legends as Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Nat King Cole.

                            Bernard Hermann

                            Taxi Driver

                              You talkin’ to ME?’; undeniably one of the most famous quotes from movie history and from one of its most memorable characters. Travis Bickle, the frustrated Vietnam veteran in Taxi Driver; the lonely nut obsessed with sex and violence who takes a job as a cabbie to battle his insomnia. Robert De Niro’s legendary performance ensured that this Scorcese classic ended up on many a ‘best movie of all time’ lists.

                              Bernard Hermann’s score is comprised primarily of a brass section mixing with a saxophone theme. The music swings back and forth, to amplify Travis’ deteriorating mental state. Layered atop the two key components are harps, woodwinds, and even noises of the city, like a nearby drum kit or the music of a theater. It was also Bernard Hermann’s last ever soundtrack. He died just a few hours after completing the score. Like no other he composed a dark and threatening atmosphere that drags you into Bickle’s twisted mind.

                              John Carpenter

                              Halloween OST

                                For the first time, Sacred Bones Records is making the formerly mailorder-exclusive “art edition” of John Carpenter, Cody Carpenter, and Daniel Davies’s Halloween soundtrack available for wide distribution. The art edition features deluxe packaging with unique art by Chris Bilheimer.

                                The new Halloween movie has the distinction of being the first film in the series with creator John Carpenter’s direct involvement since 1982’s Halloween III: Season of the Witch. Carpenter serves on the new David Gordon Green-directed installment as an executive producer, a creative consultant, and, thrillingly, as a soundtrack composer, alongside his collaborators from his three recent solo albums, Cody Carpenter and Daniel Davies.

                                The new soundtrack pays homage to the classic Halloween score that Carpenter composed and recorded in 1978, when he forever changed the course of horror cinema and synthesizer music with his low-budget masterpiece. Several new versions of the iconic main theme serve as the pulse of Green’s film, its familiar 5/4 refrain stabbing through the soundtrack like the Shape’s knife. The rest of the soundtrack is just as enthralling, incorporating everything from atmospheric synth whooshes to eerie piano-driven pieces to skittering electronic percussion. While the new score was made with a few more resources than Carpenter’s famously shoestring original, its musical spirit was preserved.

                                “It was great,” Carpenter said of the experience. “It was transforming. It was not a movie I directed, so I had a lot of freedom in creating the score and getting into the director’s head. I was proud to serve David Gordon Green’s vision.”

                                    House On The Edge Of The Park - OST

                                      Ruggero Deodato’s House On The Edge Of The Park is obviously inspired by Last House On The Left (even down to stealing Last House star David Hess), the films a notorious 1980’s Italian Horror movie and was banned in several countries including the UK. It’s vicious and nasty, revelling in it’s own depravity. The score by Maestro Riz Ortolaniis is the complete opposite, side 1 is bright and airy featuring the absolute stole cold disco classic ‘Do It To Me’ as well as the beautiful melody of ‘Sweetly’ featuring vocals by Diana Corsini, whilst Side 2 features the wonderful mellow track ‘Love Sequence’ as well as the more ominous ‘Terror Sequence’.
