    Gazelle Twin & Max De Wardener

    The Power - OST

      Gazelle Twin and Max de Wardener’s score to “The Power”, directed by BAFTA nominated director Corinna Faith.

      Taking about the soundtrack, Gazelle Twin expands, “Working on The Power with Corinna and Max didn’t feel much like work. It was a long haul thrill, from our field trip to the derelict wing of Goodmayes Hospital to record squeaky trolleys and smashed pill bottles, to making countless experiments with samples, voice, and electronics, pushing them in every extreme direction we could think of. The results bring me a lot of joy. I hope the collaboration continues.”

      Max de Wardener goes on to say, “For this score we tried to match Corinna’s terrifying vision of the dark by creating music that was both as ambiguous as it was frightening. Keeping the palette small to increase the feeling of claustrophobia, this ranged from quiet dusty out of focus sounds, to full blown dense vocal textures with pounding synths to evoke our primal fear of the unknown. Gazelle Twin’s brilliantly inventive approach to vocal music became such an important part of the film.”

      Summoning the spirit of classic ghost stories such as Susan Hill’s novel The Woman in Black and the intense psychological atmosphere of Dario Argento’s Suspiria, The Power is set in a crumbling East London Royal Infirmary in 1974.

      Clint Mansell

      Rebecca (Music From The Netflix Film)

        The psychological thriller - directed by Ben Wheatley and starring Lily James, Armie Hammer and Kristin Scott Thomas - aired on Netflix on October 21 - one of Netflix’s biggest films of 2020.

        Speaking about his score, Mansell says: “Of course the main objective is to serve the film, support the story, and have the music play its role. But aside from that, to be honest, when I approach a new film nothing is sacred, everything is up for grabs. You need to take it apart and then rebuild it to find one’s own voice within it. That said I love to do lots of research on a project before I start writing - it’s my most favourite part of the process. The film I’m scoring has to inform me of what it needs, to what it will respond. So, an intimate knowledge of the work, other interpretations, background, the author, etc. is key to my being receptive to that.”

        As well as being one of the founding members of Pop Will Eat Itself, Clint Mansell is one of the most respected contemporary film composers and his hugely successful works include Requiem For A Dream, Moon, The Fountain, Black Mirror: San Junipero, High- Rise, Doom and more.

        Divide And Dissolve

        Gas Lit

          Multidimensional duo Divide and Dissolve release their third full length studio album ‘Gas Lit’ on Invada Records, produced by Ruban Neilson of Unknown Mortal Orchestra.

          Divide and Dissolve members Takiaya Reed (saxophone, guitar, live effects) and Sylvie Nehill (drums, live effects) create instrumental music that is both heavy and beautiful, classically influenced yet thrillingly contemporary and powerfully expressive and communicative. Their music has the ability to speak without words and utilises frequencies to interact with the naturally occurring resonance.

          ‘We Are Really Worried About You’ presents a formidable saxophone sound giving way to a surge of crushing percussion and heavy guitar riffs. ‘Denial’ is a potent blend of Takiaya’s ominous and unsettling sax that blows wide open into riff city for almost eight glorious minutes. Both tracks encapsulate the message behind the music: to undermine and destroy the white supremacist colonial frameworks and to fight for indigenous sovereignty, black and indigenous liberation, water, earth and indigenous land given back.

          For fans of James Baldwin, Osa Atoe, Adrienne Davies, the ocean and freshwater, breath/breathing, Toni Morrison, Octavia Butler, Afro futurism, indigenous futurism, indigenous sovereignty, slavery abolition, resistance, the forest, bodies of water, being submerged, the railroad and Ai Ogawa.

          STAFF COMMENTS

          says: At no point throughout 'Gas Lit' do you come away with the impression that they're just having a good time. This is a visceral and intense, but entirely enjoyable fusion of neo-classical timbres with metallic heft and shoegazey walls of sound. Towering and impeccably constructed.

            The Whalebone Box (Original Score)

              Andrew Kötting is one of the UK’s most highly regarded film makers, having worked on films such as ‘Gallivant’ (1996), ‘Swansdown’ (2012), ‘Edith Walks’ (2017) and many more.

              His new film, ‘The Whalebone Box’, was released in 2019. The soundtrack is composed by Andrew Kötting, Riz Maslen (Grand Theft Auto, Neotropic, Small Fish With Spine) and Oliver Cherer (Gilroy Mere, Dollboy).

              For the soundtrack to ‘The Whalebone Box’, Kötting used various pieces of music by Dollboy, The Assistant and musician Riz Maslen among others. Kötting chopped, processed and repurposed the songs for the film’s soundtrack, described as “a gentle, savage, unnerving warm bath of noise, music and references that is an integral part of the film and as much Andrew as it is the original tracks.”

              Jeremy Gara

              Passerine Finale

                Jeremy Gara, drummer of Arcade Fire, releases his second solo album ‘Passerine Finale’ on Invada Records.

                The album was mastered by Helge Sten (Deathprod, Supersilent) and composed, produced and recorded by Jeremy over the last three years. ‘Passerine Finale’ is a varied collection of songs and disparate sounds, from arranged static noise to extended melodic drones, improvised and chiselled at, ignoring form or structure, and completed the moment things ‘felt’ something.

                The album comes pressed on silver vinyl and is housed in a heavyweight sleeve with digital download card included, with artwork throughout by Jeremy himself.

                Jeremy explains: “‘L_06’ - the visual thing, like the song it accompanies, comes from trying to push really simple objects and figures to a place where they hopefully, somehow, become imprinted with a kind of emotional energy - attempting to entwine single note drones and simple straight lines together tightly enough that they dance a little.”

                Originally from Ottawa, Canada, Jeremy has been a member of Arcade Fire since 2004. Outside of the band, he has recently collaborated with bandmate Sarah Neufeld and world-renowned dancer and choreographer Peggy Baker on composing music for a large-scale dance production called Who We Are In The Dark and performed it live at various dance festivals. He’s also been touring and performing his solo material across the world since his first album, ‘Limn’, was released in March of 2016.

                STAFF COMMENTS

                says: invada obviously have form for this sort of soundtracky full-spectrum mayhem, but i've not heard anything quite as brilliantly punishing and heavy since Ben Frost's 'Theory Of Machines'. Passerine Finale is a gorgeous, genre straddling behemoth, and one that deserves to be absorbed at full volume.

                Dispatches From Elsewhere (Music From The Elsewhere Society)

                  Dispatches From Elsewhere (Music From The Elsewhere Society) is a striking guitar-based album composed for the AMC show by Atticus Ross, Leopold Ross & Claudia Sarne. “Music From The Jejune Institute” and “Music From The Elsewhere Society” both represent opposing factions in the series. The score is pressed on black vinyl and housed in a deluxe spined sleeve with printed insert and download card included.

                  Atticus Ross is an English musician and producer who has been living and working in Los Angeles since 2000. His move from records to include working in film started in 2010 with The Book of Eli and The Social Network. Along the way he has won a number of awards including the Grammy, the Oscar, the Golden Globe, the Critics’ Choice and the Ariel. He is also a member of the band Nine Inch Nails. Leopold Ross is an English composer whose scoring career began with the Hughes Brothers The Book of Eli.

                  He has gone on to score numerous films and TV shows, working with many notable directors including Michael Mann (Blackhat), Harmony Korine (Caput) and more. Claudia Sarne is an English musician, composer and songwriter who lives and works in Los Angeles. Her music is featured on work with leading contemporary female artists such as Tierney Gearon and Polly Borland. She collaborates extensively with Atticus Ross and Leopold Ross.

                  Created by and starring Jason Segel, “Dispatches From Elsewhere” is an original anthology series centered around four ordinary people who feel there’s something missing in their lives, but they can’t quite put their finger on what it is. This diverse foursome is brought together by chance – or perhaps it’s by design – when they stumble onto a puzzle hiding just behind the veil of everyday life.

                      This is the original score to Devs by Ben Salisbury, The Insects and Geoff Barrow. It includes all 37 tracks from the stunning score. Ben Salisbury says, "As with all of Alex's projects, we started working on ideas for the music after reading the scripts, and as well as being blown away by the material, we knew the music would need to reflect the strong religious thread that runs through story, and that we would need a number of developing themes that had a warped devotional vibe to them. But the music also needed to work with the thriller and tension side of things and the moments of outright horror, as well as sitting alongside the sheer beauty and scale of the amazing cinematography and set design. Crucially, the score also had to reflect and emphasise the human and emotional aspects of a story that is ultimately about grief and love.”

                      Billy Nomates

                        Billy Nomates, the fierce, funny, outspoken force of nature who hails from Melton Mowbray and now flits between Bournemouth and Bristol, has arrived to rattle cages.

                        The songs on her debut album all come from a place of defiance. Rebellion against Brexit. Against soul-sapping, dead-end jobs and zero-hours contracts. Against gender inequality, sexual harassment and festivals with obligatory female acts hidden in the small print. Billy’s songs lampoon the same bleak reality satirised by her beloved Scarfolk website and explored so abrasively in the fringe theatre she finds solace in.

                        Musically, there are snatches of Nick Cave’s rumbling sprechgesang; the “off-the-wall-ness of musicians like Captain Beefheart”; Sleaford Mods’ febrile post-punk; the groovesome lofi art-rock of Sonic Youth; and the brassy Americana of Emmylou Harris. What dominates, though, is a feeling of release. Of letting it all out.

The musician, also one half of Fuck Buttons, has been making music under the moniker since 2010 and has released three albums on Sacred Bones, 2015's Dumb Flesh, 2017's World Eater and 2019’s Animated Violence Mild. Calm With Horses, Nick Rowland’s feature film debut, is a raw and beautiful tale of one man’s struggle to navigate both crime and family life in rural Ireland.

                            Invada Records release Warren Ellis’ score to ‘This Train I Ride’.

                            The Australian musician (Dirty Three, Bad Seeds, Grinderman) has scored a number of high-profile films (‘The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford’, ‘Hell or High Water’, ‘The Road’) and his latest score is for ‘This Train I Ride’, a documentary film directed by Arno Bitschy.

                            The score is pressed on black vinyl and comes in a deluxe gatefold sleeve with the record itself housed in a double sided printed inner sleeve featuring liner notes by Warren Ellis and Brian Eno. Digital download card included.

                            “My idea was to record, collate and produce the music on trains, in the spirit of the women in this documentary. Brian was so encouraging with this approach and told me about a train journey he had taken in the 80’s with no fixed destination. Over the next month I sat with my computer, loops, iPhone, Reface DX synthesiser and forgotten ideas and composed the music on the Metro and Eurostar and in various hotels while working on Ghosteen. I would send the pieces to Arno from the train, or wherever I was located, and he edited them into the film.” - Warren Ellis

                            The film tells the story of women hopping freight trains around America. The film follows the life-journeys of these women living on the fringe in a rapidly changing country, in their quest for identity, freedom and finding their place in the world.

                            The Virtues: Television Series Soundtrack - Feat. Original Music By PJ Harvey

                              The soundtrack to Shane Meadows’ ‘The Virtues’, which screened on Channel 4 in May / June 2019, features six original pieces of music by PJ Harvey written for the series and includes tracks used throughout the series, including music by Aphex Twin, MONO, Lisa Hannigan and more.

                              “I am so happy to have provided the original music for this extraordinary and powerful new drama by a director I have admired and followed all my life. Shane has a unique directness and sensitivity to his work which I am drawn to and aspire to in my own work, so our collaboration was open and trusting. I sent Shane ideas as demos for him to try out as he edited and let him choose what he used and where to the greatest effect. In the end we both loved how the demos worked so left them as they were, adding to the raw beauty of the piece.” - PJ Harvey

                              says: What better combination could there be than Shane Meadows' singular artistic direction and PJ Harvey's keen soundtracking talents? Beautiful ambient sections and orchestral lushness, terse melodies and PJ's instantly recognisable vox. Lovely.

                              Bait - Original Score

                                Invada Records announce the release of Mark Jenkin’s drone-heavy score to UK film ‘Bait’.

                                Mark Jenkin amazingly directed, edited and composed the score himself for the resolutely DIY yet hugely successful film. ‘Bait’ has since received four British Independent Film Awards nominations for Best Indie Film, Best Director, Breakthrough Producer and Best Editing and is one of the highest grossing and most successful indie films of 2019.

                                The score is pressed on blue vinyl and comes housed in an extra thick deluxe spined sleeve with double sided heavyweight card printed insert, featuring stills from the film. There is also a digital download card included.

                                Jenkin: “I started playing around with some drone ideas as a distraction from the editing of the film; something to take my mind off the cutting,” he says. “I was experimenting with delays and reverbs and decay and I began to feel that there was a nautical theme to the sounds that I was making.

                                “An original drone was created very separate to the film but then I realised it might work as a score. From there I created a set of about 12 drones (eight of which are on the album) which were mostly variations on a theme and I began to place them in the edit to match the score. The drones work very well with the sounds of the sea, which is pretty much omni-present throughout the film and makes it easier to embed a drone without it being a big ‘musical’ statement.”

                                  Invada Records release Dan Levy’s score to Netflix animated feature ‘I Lost My Body’ on vinyl.

                                  Levy is one half of the French electro-pop duo The Dø, along with Olivia Merilhati. He also produces for S+C+A+R+R who is featured on the album.

                                  “Music is a powerful thing; it can be an emotional experience that surfaces new ideas about reality and truth,” says Dan Levy of his experience scoring the film. “Working on ‘I Lost My Body’ was the first time I scored an animated film, and I was seduced by the magic that emanated from the intense and painstaking work that goes into creating a film like this.”

                                  An unforgettable visual journey from director Jérémy Clapin, ‘I Lost My Body’ follows a severed hand as it escapes a Parisian laboratory and treks across the city in search of the rest of its body. The film won the Nespresso Grand Prize at the Cannes Film Festival, the first animated film ever to do so.

                                  For the surreal German supernatural thriller, Frost’s dynamic and ominous orchestrations provide a striking backdrop. Says Frost: “Working in this strange and beautiful world of light and shadow has been a gift and an endless source of inspiration”. Ben Frost is an Australian composer and producer based in Iceland.

Dark is set in a German town in present day where the disappearance of two young children exposes the double lives and fractured relationships among four families. The story takes on a supernatural twist that ties back to the same town in multiple time periods.

                                  says: Furthering his already prolific output on the soundtrack scene, top-tier noise merchant and ambient god Frost brings out two parts to his superb score for German Netflix outing, 'Dark'. The first cycle is a bit more of a brooding affair (as with Stranger Things) and perfectly soundtracks the rising unease and supernatural strangeness of the whole situation.

                                  Luce: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

                                  ‘Luce: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack’, featuring original score by Ben Salisbury and Geoff Barrow (‘Annihilation’) stars Naomi Watts, Octavia Spencer, Tim Roth and Kelvin Harrison, Jr. Stacked with amazing performances and adapted from JC Lee’s acclaimed play, director Julius Onah has created an intense, multi-layered and deeply entertaining look at identity in today’s America.

                                  Certain to be one of the most talked-about films of the year, ‘Luce’ is a smart psychological thriller that will leave audiences breathless.

                                  Says Ben Salisbury: “The script for ‘Luce’ had such an impact on us, that we not only jumped at the chance to be involved, but also immediately came up with a theme for Luce himself. This was one of those rare occasions where our very first response, informed by Julius Onah’s incredibly strong vision, ended up being the catalyst for the whole score.

                                  The music is predominately performed on church organ, which seemed the ideal instrument to provide the sort of ‘cold emotion’ that was often required, and could also be used to build tension and contribute to the general sense of unease."

                                  "It was a real privilege to be involved in a film where the drama is so nuanced, and the character allegiances and emotions are constantly shifting. When a film purposefully asks difficult questions, and doesn’t attempt to provide easy answers, you are obliged as composers, to leave the musical ‘sledgehammer’ alone. This is often a very good thing!”

                                  All About Eve - Original Music

                                    All About Eve — Original Music, composed by double Mercury Music Prize-winner PJ Harvey.

                                    The 14-track album contains 10 original pieces of instrumental music, as well as two new songs written by Harvey and sung by Gillian Anderson and Lily James.

                                    The physical release also includes demo versions of ‘The Sandman’ and The Moth’, performed by PJ Harvey.

                                    On composing this score, Harvey says, “I have always loved stories, and so to compose music to support and enhance a story being told is a challenge I enjoy. I also love the freedom that working instrumentally can give me without the constraints of song form.”

                                    “For All About Eve I chose to work with my long-time collaborator James Johnston as he has a soulfulness and sensitivity to his playing that inspires me. I also worked with Kenrick Rowe who has a versatility to his drumming I knew I could experiment with until I found what was right.”

                                    All About Eve is the stage adaption directed by Ivo Van Hove.

                                    says: It's become more and more clear that PJ Harvey can easily put her mind to anything she deems necessary, and with great effect. The soundtrack for this adaptation of All About Eve is even more evidence, with perfect cues and touching sentimaentality oozing through every note. A beautifully performed and perfectly written piece. In-situ or not.

                                    Stranger Things 3 - Original Score From The Netflix Original Series

                                      S U R V I V E members Kyle Dixon & Michael Stein's score to Stranger Things 3.

                                      GRAMMY Nominated and EMMY Winning composers Kyle Dixon & Michael Stein's score to 'Stranger Things' is perhaps the show’s secret ingredient. A mixture of icy new-wave hooks, spooky ambient textures and menacing drones which bring a spine-tingling ambience and a hauntingly beautiful nostalgia all at once.

                                      It’s 1985 in Hawkins, Indiana, and summer’s heating up. School’s out, there’s a brand new mall in town, and the Hawkins crew are on the cusp of adulthood. Romance blossoms and complicates the group’s dynamic, and they’ll have to figure out how to grow up without growing apart. Meanwhile, danger looms. When the town’s threatened by enemies old and new, Eleven and her friends are reminded that evil never ends; it evolves. Now they’ll have to band together to survive, and remember that friendship is always stronger than fear.

                                      Monos: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

                                        Invada Records and Lakeshore Records will co-release ‘Monos: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack’, featuring original music by Ivor Novello Award-winner and Academy Award-nominated Mica Levi (Jackie, Under the Skin).

                                        The London-based composer, music producer and artist creates an indescribably hallucinatory, often menacing backdrop to the survivalist thriller set on a remote mountain in Latin America.

                                        Says director Alejandro Landes: “Mica connected with and understood the spirit of the film: the faces, the colors, the extremeness of the environment, the mash of costumes, the absence of a specific time, place or date. She's classically trained but can be equally as inspired by pop or heavy metal; she can mix synthesizer-driven music with a quartet. All this brings a very particular sensibility, a mixing of instruments, that made for a distinct, emotional and atemporal sound.”

                                        HANNA: Season 1 (Music From The Amazon Original Series)

                                          Invada Records and Lakeshore Records announce the release of the soundtrack to Amazon Prime’s ‘HANNA: Season 1’ on vinyl.

                                          Pressed on white double vinyl housed in a deluxe gatefold sleeve.

                                          For the first time, composers Ben Salisbury and Geoff Barrow were able to put together a team of musicians to work together to form a collaborative score for the whole series.

                                          The soundtrack consists of tracks by Karen O and Beak>, plus an original score by Ben Salisbury, Geoff Barrow, The Insects, Simon Ashdown and Yann McCullough.

                                          “Because of the size of the ‘HANNA’ series, we had the opportunity to bring our own team of artists and composers. The producers had already contacted the amazing Karen O whose song ‘Anti-Lullaby’ formed a theme that was continued throughout the series. It was also great to work with our friends The Insects (Massive Attack co writers Bob Locke & Tim Norfolk), Simon Ashdown and music editor turned composer Yann McCullough” - Geoff Barrow

                                          Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ singer Karen-O’s wandering, ominous ‘Anti-Lullaby’ appears on the soundtrack along with her Goth rendition of Smashing Pumpkin’s ‘Bullet With Butterfly Wings’, with Beak>’s ‘Wulfstan II’ appropriately closing the album.

                                          The score for ‘HANNA: Season 1’ features layers of manipulated organic elements which composer Ben Salisbury describes thusly: “The score for the series was mainly inspired by the character of Hanna herself, and her forest upbringing. Even though the music is sometimes processed, it is always based on something real and organic rather than pure electronics. We often used layers of woodwind instruments (including some fairly unusual ethnic flutes and pipes) as a way of linking Hanna to the natural world in which she was brought up, and also to try and capture her fierce animal spirit and her sense of wonder as she experiences the ‘new world’ beyond the forest.” - Ben Salisbury

                                          Butterfly: Original Series Soundtrack

                                            Grammy nominated ‘Stranger Things’ composers and S U R V I V E members Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein return to score three part British drama ‘Butterfly’.

                                            Housed in a heavyweight spined sleeve and pressed on 180g black vinyl with digital download card included.

                                            “We had just come off our first project that had established us as these retrosynth/80s producers, and we wanted to do something that helped get us out of that box,” Dixon and Stein said in a press release. “Obviously there are still synths being used, and coincidentally some of them are from the 80s, but hopefully this score won’t be received as such.”

                                            The music to ‘Butterfly’ sustains Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein’s proclivity for locating humanism in their electronics. The signals they send have some sort of uncanny correlation with core feelings. More uncanny is their tonal grasp of what it is to be young and curious.

                                            ‘Butterfly’ is the story of 11-year-old Max who identifies as a girl and wants to live her life as Maxine. Her estranged parents Vicky and Stephen attempt to work out how best to cope with and support this huge life decision.

                                            LP includes digital download code.

                                            says: AARGH. I always loved the throbbing synths and intense atmospheres in Dixon & Stein's work under their own names (soundtracking Stranger Things for example), and as 'Survive', but this soundtrack takes all of that oscillator knowledge and inject it with a healthy dose of hazy 80's reverie (despite their insistence to the contrary), all saturation and arps. Completely on-board.

                                            Spheres (Original Score)

                                              ‘Spheres’ is a celestially immersive experience focusing on the human connection with the cosmos - with music composed and performed by Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein.

                                              Written and directed by Eliza McNitt (‘Fistful of Stars’, ‘Without Fire’), ‘Spheres’ will be released on the Oculus Rift and is presented by City Lights and Protozoa Pictures. Darren Aronofsky and Ari Handel are executive producers.

                                              Grammy nominated Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein need no introduction as two of today’s most highly regarded film score composers, having worked on ‘Stranger Things’ series 1 and 2 and ‘Butterfly’, as well as being members of S U R V I V E.

                                              says: Two D&S scores in one week?! This one is equally as excellent, but a little more geared towards the ambient end of the spectrum, with cavernous echoing reverb and subtly panned swirls of industrial machination, this is equally as superb as their previous work but considerably darker. A perfect flipside to the coin.

                                              The four-track EP features the recently released title track which was inspired directly from a recent trip to Mexico City when the band awoke to the sound of a distorted young girls' voice bellowing across the city. Further investigation revealed the source as a recording used by scrap-collecting carts urging people to bring out old beds and washing machines. Returning to the UK filled with inspiration from the trip, Billy, Geoff and Will hot-footed it to the Invada studios to record the EP

                                              The band said their new track ‘We Can Go’ is “the most normal song we have ever written. We like it.”

                                              Out Of Blue: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

                                                ‘Requiem For A Dream’ and ‘Black Mirror’ composer Clint Mansell scores British film director Carol Morley’s neo-noir thriller, ‘Out Of Blue’.

                                                In ‘Out Of Blue’, Mansell’s dark and hypnotic score enhances the moody and menacing moments in the neo-noir murder mystery based on the novel ‘Night Train’ by Martin Amis.

                                                Says Morley in the soundtrack’s liner notes: “So, here we have it, this soaring, heart shifting, mind bending soundtrack for ‘Out Of Blue’. It takes you about and around and inside yourself. It propels, it develops, it leads us places. It is true to the film, but doesn’t illustrate what we see. It has its own energy, its own beautiful hidden depths, and it creates its own star spangled mystery.”

                                                For fans of ‘PI’, ‘Black Mirror’, ‘Requiem For A Dream’, ‘Stranger Things’, ‘Drive’.

                                                DROKK: Music Inspired By Mega-City One

                                                  After being completely sold out on vinyl, Geoff Barrow & Ben Salisbury’s "DROKK: Music Inspired By Mega-City One" has been reissued as a special edition on double LP with beautiful new bespoke packaging and bonus material. This incredible new package is designed by Marc Bessant and features a spined ‘sombre grey’ outer sleeve with deboss and die-cut revealing the reverse board inner sleeve and vinyl label.

                                                  "DROKK" is a synth heavy score with a relentless darkness, a cold atmosphere where the tension never drops. Although it is a soundtrack of sorts, Barrow and Salisbury instinctively felt that music for MC1 should steer clear of the rich orchestration common to many contemporary film scores. Even for electronica the music is often purposefully stark and spare, with the majority of tracks created exclusively on the Oberhiem 2 Voice Synthesizer with a cameo from Beak>.

                                                  says: Absolutely one of my favourite synth albums to this day, Barrow & Salisbury's DROKK is finally available again for everyone I constantly recommend it to. Brilliantly restrained atmospheres and dusty synth soundscapes perfectly capture the Dreddian atmosphere better than the original soundtrack could ever hope to (sorry Silvestri). An essential cinematic synth staple.

                                                  Thought Forms - 10th Anniversary Reissue

                                                    Thought Forms celebrate the ten year anniversary of their classic self-titled debut album with a reissued version plus a handful of gigs.

                                                    Hailing from England’s rural South West, the trio were brought together amongst the ley-lines and ancient vibrations by a shared love of guitar abuse and pedal worship.

                                                    Thought Forms are a true band’s band, having toured extensively with Portishead, recording this debut record in Geoff Barrow’s studio and finally releasing it on his label Invada Records 10 years ago.

                                                    Thought Forms have also played with Kaiser Chiefs and 65DaysOfStatic and have featured on the Ivor Novello winning score to ‘Ex Machina’.

                                                    This most progressive and forward-looking of bands take a rare moment to breathe and reflect on their early days and in particular their classic debut album.

                                                    The mighty Beak> – made up of Billy Fuller, Will Young, and Geoff Barrow of that band fame – return with their most claustrophobic album yet, chock full of the krautrock grooves, meandering structures and off-kilter melodies that fans of the band have come to expect from them. Having knocked it out of the park with their ‘Sex Music’ single earlier this year, >>> carries on in the same subtle, bass-led vein.
                                                    The trio flirt with chaos throughout the album, pushing each instrument through layers of distortion and reverb to the brink of recognisability, and the countless eerie squeaks, sci-fi synths and fucked-with-strings only add to its otherworldly nature. >>> is as mesmerising as it is uneasy, teetering on a tightrope stretched between soft, winding compositions and edgy, no nonsense heft.
                                                    Pretty much every song is a highlight. ‘Birthday Suit’ is devastating, all fluttering synths, lo-fi vocals and heartbreak, while ‘Allé Sauvage’ is a dangerously danceable seven-and-a-half-minuter, with blips galore and razor sharp hi-hats driving the song along nicely. ‘RSI’ is a motoric gem. Scratch that – Beak> are a motoric gem.
                                                    But ‘When We Fall’ is on another level entirely. First released under the band’s Like easy listening music thrown off a cliff and pieced back together again, >>> is a Frankenstein’s monster of atmosphere, griminess, groove and space. Transcendent.

                                                    Elizabeth Harvest: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

                                                      Rachel Zeffira’s (Cat’s Eyes) score to Sebastian Gutierrez’s ‘Elizabeth Harvest’.

                                                      Zeffira’s ‘Elizabeth Harvest’ score contains elements of all of her musical influences, from her choral and orchestral arranging to her oboe solos and contemporary songwriting. Erik Satie’s sarabande becomes an underlying musical theme, which gradually becomes more unhinged as the score progresses. Other characters feature yet more experimental themes, where pieces were chopped, rebuilt and manipulated.

                                                      The vinyl is housed in a deluxe spined sleeve with beautiful artwork put together by Marc Bessant and comes complete with printed insert and digital download card. The score is pressed on clear vinyl.

                                                      Rachel Zeffira is a talented oboe player, soprano soloist and multi instrumentalist known for her work with the Victoria Symphony Orchestra and with Faris Badwan (The Horrors) in Cat’s Eyes. Together the pair scored Peter Strickland’s ‘The Duke Of Burgundy’, which won the 2015 European Film Award for Best Composer. She is also the first female composer to be nominated for an Ivor Novello award.

                                                      ‘Elizabeth Harvest’ is a stylised sci-fi thriller, gothic love story and existential mystery which follows newlywed Eizabeth (Abbey Lee) and her brilliant scientist husband (Ciaran Hinds) and their magnificent mountain estate. Slowly, Elizabeth begins to realise she may not be exactly who she thinks she is. The truth and its repercussions are beyond anything she could have imagined.

                                                        Whilst holding evident inspiration from previous times, the sound this London-founded duo present is progressive and distinctly new in every sense. Idyllic at times; gritty in others, each bar is as enchanting as the last, leaving you in a melancholic trance. Offering poignant lyricism that explores modern anxieties that plague many, the duo manage to imbue feelings of empowerment, fighting such struggles with a deceivingly sanguine sound. This seamless juxtaposition is perhaps their best trait.

                                                        War Machine - Original Score

                                                          ‘War Machine’ is a new Netflix film, directed by David Michôd and starring Brad Pitt and Tilda Swinton among many others.

                                                          Military snares set a sharp cadence beneath the score’s eerie synths and strings, instantly reminiscent of ‘Skeleton Tree’ by Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds and the beautiful ‘Hell Or High Water’ score.

                                                          “Together we made a score that was both light and dark, propulsive and meditative at the same time. We developed a kind of ‘spiritual electronics’ that captured both the melancholy and the terrible absurdity of the Afghan war,” Cave and Ellis said in a press release. “It was a great pleasure to work with David Michôd, who is not only an extraordinary filmmaker but a musician too. Our favorite score!”

                                                          Stranger Things Season 2

                                                          Dixon and Stein return for the latest addition to their overwhelming spate of excellence over the past couple years. Following on from the first series waas never going to be easy for anyone involved, with it's 80's buddy-movie hauntology vibe being perfectly accentuated by Survive's less shadowy alter-ego on soundtrack duties, but series 2 has lived up to that expectation in every way. I know, that episode was pretty ridiculous, but you don't have to listen to it do you. 

                                                          We kick things off with the haunting melancholy beauty of 'Walkin In Hawkins', perfectly capturing the eerie ambience of the city streets after the discovery of an analogue hell, hidden behind a bit of your local school. It's a moment we're all familiar with i'm sure, but Dixon & Stein manage to make its duality seem alluring, pressing forwards with paddling apreggio's and swelling pads.  Pieces like 'Eulogy' and 'On The Bus' talking things slowly forwards, opening the filters into an edgy benzoed bliss.

                                                          As we move onwards, things shift from a resolved optimism, into the inevitable downturn of a threatened society, with pieces like 'Descent Into The Rift' and 'Escape' providing a darker edge to things, moving towards the inevitable crescentic audiovisual finale. It's a brilliant companion to the programme, and just as much a divine pleasure in it's own right. Impeccable.

                                                            Geoff Barrow and Ben Salisbury return to score Ben Wheatley’s 1970s based epic shoot-out ‘Free Fire’, executively produced by Martin Scorsese.

                                                            Compiled by director Ben Wheatley himself, the soundtrack will be released on CD and double LP, featuring the full score by Geoff Barrow and Ben Salisbury, dialogue from the film and licensed tracks (The Real Kids, Creedence Clearwater Revival, John Denver).

                                                            ‘Free Fire’ sees Barrow and Salisbury take a huge directional curve away from their intense, synth-based Ivor Novello award winning score for ‘Ex Machina’, with the composers curating a prog rock, free jazz, psychedelic journey influenced by bands such as King Crimson, Camel and Magma and tips its hat to the Lalo Schifrin thriller genre scores of that era.

                                                            Both the LP and CD will include a digital download card which features the full soundtrack as well as additional unheard bonus material not used in the score.

                                                              JUPITER-C’s debut release on Invada Records, featuring remixes by legendary film score composer Clint Mansell (‘Requiem For A Dream’, ‘Moon’, ‘Black Mirror’), and by UK electronic musician East India Youth. The East India Youth remix is to be the artist’s final piece of work under this name.

                                                              JUPITER-C describe their sound as “ruptured melodies with dissonant noise,” a description presented brilliantly in their debut EP which features heavy drones, saturated guitar melodies and haunting female vocals.

                                                              With darkly-hued synths and pulsing drum machines, this project is reminiscent of works by The KVB, The Soft Moon, Siouxsie Sioux, The Cure and Joy Division.

                                                              With its pillowy synth-pads and rich textures, the soundtrack to Volume Two seamlessly wanders through the 80s world of ‘Stranger Things’, breeding an unthreatening serenity with a gentle shift toward a darker mood. Floating between sweeter moments which temporarily blossom amidst the danger and decay, Volume Two is the second part of the ‘Stranger Things’ score, reaching climactic highs as the series comes to an end.

                                                              This soundtrack is instantly reminiscent of works by John Carpenter (‘Halloween’, ‘The Thing’), Tangerine Dream and Vangelis (‘Blade Runner’), whilst also delving into the ambience of Aphex Twin and more modern composers such as Cliff Martinez (‘Drive’, ‘Solaris’).

                                                              says: Having been entranced with Stranger Things, reading this tracklist is like a 'skip to the end' recap of the latter half of the series, listening obviously makes it all the more enthralling. Moody synth ambience, throbbing saw waves and eerie sweeps. Unsurprisingly brilliant.

                                                                Scarlet Rascal unite a distinct concoction of alternative ideas that tap into Joy Division, The Birthday Party and ‘Love’–era The Cult whilst also neatly neighbouring the likes of The Velvet Underground and The Jesus and Mary Chain.

                                                                Mixed by Geoff Barrow of Portishead and Craig Silvey (New Order / Baxter Dury / The Horrors), Scarlet Rascal’s debut is a ringing, tense and unique proposition.

                                                                  The music calls to mind works of Nine Inch Nails, Trent Reznor, Atticus Ross and even elements of Mogwai and Aphex Twin.

                                                                  Strictly limited to 500 copies, ‘Camino’ is pressed on 140g clear double vinyl and is housed in deluxe gatefold packaging complete with printed insert and 12 page booklet, all designed by American artist John Bergin (‘Hannibal’, ‘Drive’).

The Austin, Texas trio will kick off the new year by releasing God's Dream, a 12-inch LP on Invada Records UK. The album is set to be released on 19th April 2014 Record Store Day. arm guitars and pulsing drums combine to form an aggressively atmospheric bubble, encompassing the listener in an infectious cohesive which blends the sounds of an era when Sonic Youth and Jesus and Mary Chain walked the Earth with a forward thinking and creatively stubborn indie darling. Joined by Adam Franklin of Swervedriver on the track "Nowhere" and Jeff Schroeder of the Smashing Pumpkins on "Chainsaw Morning," Ringo Deathstarr has created a flawlessly crafted sound on God's Dream, destined and deserving to exist on vinyl. Thankfully for enthusiasts, that is exactly where God's Dream has ended up. Ringo Deathstarr will release an exclusive run of sunshine yellow vinyl, limited to 500 copies. ingo Deathstarr, a musical trio from Austin, TX, have been putting out records since 2007. Consisting of Elliott Frazier (guitar, vocals), Alex Gehring (bass, vocals), and Daniel Coborn (drums, vocals), their sound is born from a love of melody, a love of guitar, and a hatred of pompous vocals. Finding it to be too much fun, the group has expounded upon the sounds of the masters before them. This desire to play the music they were too young to witness as children has taken Ringo Deathstarr around the globe, performing in places as far flung as Israel, Mexico, Brazil, Japan, Europe, Canada, and the continental USA, supporting favorites like ...And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead, Dean Wareham, The Wedding Present, and The Smashing Pumpkins. With two full length records (Colour Trip and Mauve) and a handful of EPs and singles in the bag, now is the time for a new EP, "God's Dream," which was recorded in Austin and on a ranch in Dripping Springs, TX. For this record, the band reunited with Chris "Frenchie" Smith, who co-produced their debut EP.

Team Brick is vocalist / multi instrumentalist Matt Williams who has over the past couple of years been quietly making a name for himself in the Bristol music scene, not least his involvement last year on Portishead's "3rd" album. Along with Geoff Barrow and Billy Fuller, Williams is also a member of Beak whose debut album will be released on Invada later this year. If you haven't heard or seen this man play out or heard any of his music this is a good a place as any to check him out. The man cant be compared to anybody or anything, but if you're a fan of the following artists... John Zorn, Merzbow, Mr Bungle, Secret Chiefs 3, Steve Reich, Dalek, Cardiacs etc etc you may wish to explore what he has to offer with this album. Making comparisons from Robert Wyatt to Gastr Del Sol to Sunn O))) Wire magazine concluded; 'There are plenty of would-be mavericks currently operating on the fringes of the UK music underground, most of whom are labouring under delusions of adequacy, never mind grandeur. Matt Williams is the genuine article.'

It was originally released in a micro edition of 100 CD copies on the bands own Rooster label, these copies sold out overnight! The material consists of album outtakes, jams and rehearsal recordings, most of which are improvised. "Dead In The Water" is a lot more space rock than the previous Invada outtakes LP "33", it will appeal to fans of Bardo Pond, Acid Mothers Temple, Faust and Hawkwind!
