Free Fire Soundtrack - score by Ben Salisbury & Geoff Barrow

It’s time to lock ‘n’ load your music and cue up the Free Fire Soundtrack, score by Geoff Barrow & Ben Salisbury.  The duo looked to folks who did iconic 1970s scores such as “David Shire, who did The Taking of Pelham 123, or Lalo Schifrin.”  The soundtrack is out now on Lakeshore and Invada Records worldwide.  Experience the score in eight-track format vicariously through this very ’70s teaser, below.  Preview the entire album at the jump.

[Geoff Barrow & Ben Salisbury] manage to keep the disparate styles of their songs in tune with the film’s frenzied energy… You won’t believe it until you hear it anyway. Promise me that you will, ‘cause it’s insane in all the best ways. Just like Wheatley’s film.  – Patrick Phillips, Cut.Print.Film

Soundtrack available now worldwide on Lakeshore Records/Invada Records: [Download][Stream]

A24 presents FREE FIRE in US theaters nationwide on April 21, 2017.

Throwback Thursday: ‘Uncle John’ – The David Lynch-Approved Suspense Thriller

uncle-john_BlogPost_600x300

“I have to say that the minimalist droning score, courtesy of composers Adam Robl and Shawn Sutta, is both inspiring and a key element to this film,” -Marcus Pinn,  CutPrintFilm.com

I like experimental. I like dark. I like this score. – Soundtrack Dreams

In this latest edition of Throwback Thursday, we take a look at Steven Piet’s David Lynch-approved Uncle John film.  If The Dark Knight were retired in the form of a somewhat sinister Uncle John, then John Ashton may have just nailed it.  The film features score by Adam Robl & Shawn Sutta (And The Wind Falls, Our Longest Drive), and you can preview or stream it below, out  now on Lakeshore Records.

Uncle John film is available now on Digital (rent it on iTunes).

Tantalizing, sublimely creepy and keeps you guessing even after the credits roll. –New York Times

Thanks to Ashton’s brilliant, career-defining performance, we’re made to see that the only thing worse than doing evil deeds is being nice enough to feel guilty about them. -Chuck Wilson, Village Voice
