Lakeshore Records Pick Of The Week: ‘Gamer’ Soundtrack – Movie Stars Gerard Butler

This week, we select Gamer, a Lakeshore Records movie soundtrack with music by Robert Williamson and Geoff Zanelli.  Williamson and Zanelli constructs a futuristic gladiator-meets ultimate gamer music album.  It’s hard not to get into the action when epic guitar riffs, deep drones and disturbing metallic samples serve as the audio play-by-play in this story about beating the odds in a Dystopian society.

Kable, a prisoner in the future (played by Gerard Butler) must fight for survival while a murderous computer programmer (played by Michael C. Hall), plots to game his real-life shoot ’em up game by having Kable killed off.  Gamer (watch on Amazon): badass music paired with fierce action is a win-win.

Catching Up With ‘I, Frankenstein’ Soundtrack Artist Geno Lenardo – Watch The Movie Now On Demand!

On the eve of the I, Frankenstein HD digital release (watch on Amazon), we caught up with Geno Lenardo, one-half of the band, By Maker.  Co-founded by Daniel Davies (of Year Long Disaster) while working together on the I, Frankenstein Soundtrack, the partnership formed a new working friendship which endures to this day.  Lakeshore Records released this album infused with Electro-Goth and Industrial sounds.  Engineered with explosive beats and big guitars shredding to your delight, the tracks electrify your image of Aaron Eckhart’s “Adam” battling evil gargoyles like no immortal can.

Can you share something from the I, Frankenstein music video shoots?
Well one thing people probably don’t know from those shoots is that originally Will Hunt from Evanescence was to be drumming in the videos. Unfortunately his father fell ill and he was unable to come to L.A. to the shoot. I was really lucky that my old friend Kourtney Klein from Army On The Dance Floor was available last minute. She kicked ass and looks great.

Working as a music composer yourself, who do you admire?
There are so many.  Danny Elfman for his gothic textures, Mark Mothersbaugh, for his Wes Anderson scores, Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross for the really cool textures they create.  Social Network is my favorite modern score.  I would definitely have to list John Williams because I grew up with Raiders Of The Lost Ark and the Star Wars movies.  He’s the best theme writer in film without a doubt.

Before you begin on a project, do you have any rituals?
There’s always a bit of research and pre-production I do. It could be as simple as consolidating collections of samples from my personal libraries or as involved as doing a lot of new sound design to create a whole new world of sounds. If it’s an album for a film I get as much possible information out of the director as I can. Most have made a temp track for the film and have a clear vision of what they want the music to sound like.  Other than that I just dive in and start writing.

Collaborating and writing with a wide variety of writers and musicians is something that I can’t say enough about.  If you’re always just writing by yourself things can get stagnant.  There’s always something to be learned from another writers approach and/or perspective.

There’s three songs on the Underworld Awakening soundtrack I did.  The song, ”Heavy
Prey“ that I wrote with Lacey Sturm from Flyleaf came out really well.  There’s video
we shot for it as well on YouTube.

What’s next for you?
Right now I’m in the process of completing another collaboration with Daniel Davies for Lakeshore Records. We are doing a 10-song album and a separate album of instrumental cues for a graphic novel called Wednesday by John Bergin (of From Inside).  I can’t wait to get it out there.

Watch Two Vine Videos Which Celebrate The ‘Walk Of Shame’ Soundtrack

Walk of Shame starring Elizabeth Banks and James Marsen debuted this weekend, and legions of ladies were decked out in yellow dresses to support the Virtual Premiere which made its debut concurrently with the theatrical release.  On Vine, singer and musician Linda E P O, a popular Vine user, donned a yellow dress in honor of the Walk of Shame Soundtrack. Lakeshore Records is pleased to release this soundtrack, destined to be the playlist of the summer with danceable tracks and catchy tunes which are apparently great for looping Vine videos!

What happens when a TV newswoman who, after having an uncharacteristically wild night, ends up entangled in the most epic Walk of Shame ever while trying to get to the job interview of her career?  Linda, a popular Viner known for her musical performance videos, made two Vines in tribute to this new comedy: a singing self-collab for “Woohoo” by Eli “Paperboy” Reed and her version of a “Walk of Shame: Late For Work Edition!”  The video features the classic hit, “Everybody Have Fun Tonight” by Wang Chung.

4 Elizabeth Banks Movies We Love, Plus ‘Walk Of Shame’ Opens This Weekend

Before Elizabeth Banks darted across town in a yellow dress and boop-booped her way into our hearts in Walk of Shame, we saw her in the following films: Daltry Calhoun (watch on YouTube); Definitely, Maybe, with a soundtrack scored by Clint Mansell (watch on HitBliss); People Like Us, scored by A.R. Rahman (watch on Google Play); and The Uninvited (watch on HitBliss), scored by Christopher Young.  Lakeshore Records is proud to have released the soundtracks to these films, including the new Walk of Shame Various Artists soundtrack (download the album on iTunes).  Walk of Shame opens in theaters on Friday, but you can also catch the movie on demand via the movie’s Virtual Premiere.

If you’re looking for the one go-to soundtrack of the summer, then the Walk of Shame is a safe bet.  The album is packed with solid, danceable tracks and catchy remixes of perennial favorites, “Walking In L.A.” (Motels remix by Scott Park and Corky James), and “Everybody Have Fun Tonight” (by Wang Chung).

Elizabeth Banks stars as May in Daltry Calhoun, a heartwarming story about a struggling golf club owner who meets his 14-year old daughter and learns to be a father for the first time.  Definitely, Maybe stars Ryan Reynolds (as politician Will Hayes), Elizabeth Banks and Abigail Breslin (“Perfect Sisters“). Banks plays Emily, one of Will Hayes’ college sweethearts in this tale about a politician who tries to explain his past to his daughter.

In People Like Us, Chris Pine is “Sam,” a salesman trying to settle his recently-deceased father’s estate, only to discover he has a long-lost sister, played by Elizabeth Banks.  The Uninvited is a gripping horror story about a girl (played by Emily Browning), who returns home to be greeted by her father’s new girlfriend, Rachel (played by Elizabeth Banks), and some ghosts in her home who appear to provide clues to suggest something sinister about her dad’s new love interest.
