Listening to a lot more soundtracks these days. Anyone have suggestions? Like stuff on the post-rock, noise, dissonant side. Obviously, I've heard SYs contributions but I'm looking for new stuff.

So far I'm liking:
Les Revenants - Mogwai
Under the Skin - Mica Levi
There Will Be Blood - Johnny Greenwood
Hannibal - Brian Reitzell

I like the soundtrack to Cabaret (the movie).

Until the End of the World is still quite good. Not very noisy. Unless you play it really loud.

Zabrieskie Point is quite interesting. Pink Floyd More is of course classic! Also Roger Waters/Ron Geesin the Body is interesting. And John Parish has made really great film music that is collected into his Screenplay album.

I really like the scores Hans Zimmer has written for Christopher Nolan's films. The guy's done so much, but the ones that have really stuck out to me are Inception, Interstellar, and the Dark Knight films. Other scores of his are... Meh.


I also really liked his score for Man of Steel, but I was apparently the only person who thought that movie kicked all kinds of ass in every possible way.

Jonny Greenwood - There Will be Blood, most definitely. Incredible.

All of Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross's collaborations have been really incredible. I think Gone Girl was really snubbed at the Oscars.

Agreed with both of these for sure. Ex Machina is pretty nice in that Reznor/Ross vein. When I saw the movie, I actually found myself wondering if they scored it. Even stuck around for the credits to see. Found out though via some post-watching research it is a guy from Portishead and some other TV music guy collabing for it.

Speaking of Reznor and soundtracks, I have always really loved Natural Born Killers soundtrack since I was a teen. Reznor produced the soundtrack, and it's more "soundtrack" than original score.

Snatch also has a fucking great soundtrack, imo. Not score, but soundtrack. I always love putting that one on.

I usually hate soundtracks because I hate that filmmakers have co-opted pop music to use as a convenient and cheap emotional ploy in their bullshit boring movies. Period movies with great soundgtracks help set the time and place (Big Chill, Apocalypse Now, etc.) but movies set in modern times? fuck their soundtracks.

Soundtracks are from a by-gone era where similar to the radio, access to exposure to new music was limited. The digital/streaming era has decimated the significance of movies as "mass cultural experiences" just as streaming and downloads have reduced the radio to something people begrudgingly listen to in their cars (if then even)..

Soundtracks then are an artifact of history, reflect unique circumstances, and served a distinct purpose. Movies in general have lost their appeal, so its not surprise that soundtracks have declined.

Can we say the Spawn soundtrack was the last pea of the soundtrack era?

I was gonna say this too, one of my faves, most avant thing Neil has done except for maybe the ARC ep. A huge influence on my attempts to make imaginary western soundtrack music.

HBJ posted a link to this lost Coil/Lee Ranaldo soundtrack in the Sonic Sharing thread:
http://www.sonicyouth.com/gossip/sho...p?t=25&page=79

Thurston's contributions to the Heavy soundtrack were slim in terms of track length but pretty big for me when I found them.

Lee has a soundtrack/score compilation disc spanning several obscure projects I haven't heard yet called Music For Stage And Screen, looking forward to getting that one of these days.

SYR9 was one of the best in the series, I hope they release more SYRs from the sonic tape archives.

Nick Cave & Warren Ellis have done some pretty great scores together.

I've been getting into Ennio Morricone western scores, my favorites (besides the obvious classics) are Death Rides A Horse and Two Mules For Sister Sara.

As long as Zabriskie Point has been mentioned, here is a link to the unused John Fahey sessions for the score, for better or worse:
http://delta-slider.blogspot.com/201...int-tapes.html
Pink Floyd's unused Zabriskie Point sessions circulate as well and are good too, if you like early spaced out pre-Dark Side Floyd, though I'll leave it to you to search them out.

I was looking into movie soundtrack scores to possibly buy earlier today, and I was considering getting the Fight Club soundtrack from The Dust Brothers, but I noticed the great opening credits music isn't on the album. Anyone know why the opening credits music isn't included on the film's score soundtrack?

I'm not sure, but I think there is a "full" version of the soundtrack and a, I guess, not-so-full one. I know the soundtrack was reissued on vinyl not too terribly long ago. What's on it might depend on the version. But no, I have no idea why they wouldn't include that track, though I've run into that kind of thing before with soundtracks.

There Will be Blood is great.

I also really love The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford (Nick Cave and Warren Ellis). Just real fucking good guitar music.

Also all of the Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross scores. The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo is probably my favorite, but The Social Network and Gone Girl are both excellent as well. Also big Hans Zimmer fan. Dark Knight, Inception, Interstellar, Man of Steel, etc.

Bah... I'm getting scores confused with soundtracks again.

I'm not as big on soundtracks as I am on scores.

Wait, are we talking about scores or soundtracks?

Soundtracks, to me, are like.. y'know.. the Suicide Squad soundtrack. Bunch of songs made for or released with a movie. Tarantino's movies tend to use soundtracks as scores. Blah.

Anyway. If we're talking about soundtracks proper, then Drive is excellent ifbyouve seen the movie. If not, it probably won't do much for anyone.

I think we can use both. Basically music set to a movie, whether its a song list like the Guardians of the Galaxy soundtrack or a musical score. Hell even musical soundtracks. Earlier this year I bought the Rocky Horror Picture Show soundtrack, from the original film of course, not that television one they put out.
