Jacob Gentry’s mind-bending time travel film, Synchronicity, draws inspiration from the iconic Ridley Scott sci-fi thriller, Blade Runner. The film’s cinematic homage extends into the well-executed film score by Ben Lovett! Ben’s work earned accolades from peers and critics alike, garnering him a Discovery of The Year Nomination at the World Soundtrack Awards.

Stranger Things Vol. 1 & 2 – order at Urban Outfitters
Netflix’s hit series, “Stranger Things”, arguably the most talked-about TV series of 2016, garnered composers Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein a lot of attention for their evocative synth score. As one-half of the Austin-based band, S U R V I V E, the talented duo earned a Golden Globe® win for the main title theme and two GRAMMY® nominations, the first TV GRAMMY® nom since Angelo Badalamenti’s iconic main title theme was nominated for David Lynch’s “Twin Peaks” hit series in 1990! The initial run of these VHS-inspired Season 1 cassettes, designed by award winning Art Director John Bergin, sold out quickly at Urban Outfitters, so don’t miss out!
