John Carpenter, Cody Carpenter, and Daniel Davies // Halloween: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack



When the new Halloween movie hits theaters in October 2018, it will have the distinction of being the first film in the canon with creator John Carpenter’s direct involvement since 1982’s Halloween III: Season of the Witch. Carpenter serves on the new David Gordon Green-directed installment as an executive producer, a creative consultant, and, thrillingly, as a soundtrack composer, alongside his collaborators from his three recent solo albums, Cody Carpenter and Daniel Davies.

The new soundtrack pays homage to the classic Halloween score that Carpenter composed and recorded in 1978, when he forever changed the course of horror cinema and synthesizer music with his low-budget masterpiece. Several new versions of the iconic main theme serve as the pulse of Green’s film, its familiar 5/4 refrain stabbing through the soundtrack like the Shape’s knife. 
The rest of the soundtrack is just as enthralling, incorporating everything from atmospheric synth whooshes to eerie piano-driven pieces to skittering electronic percussion. While the new score was made with a few more resources than Carpenter’s famously shoestring original, its musical spirit was preserved.

“NOTHING PERSONAL” // ESCAPE-ISM




Visionary rock ’n’ roll provocateur IAN SVENONIUS aka ESCAPE-ISM presents “Nothing Personal”, a super-8 film directed by ALEXANDRA CABRAL, featuring ZUMI of The Black Lips and the artist ARIANA PAPADEMETROPOULOS



According to ESCAPE-ISM, “Nothing Personal” explores the moral system underpinning capitalism, and visually contextualizes it as another aberrant and sinister cult ideology. The single is part of ESCAPE-ISM’s second album ‘The Lost Record’ to be released on Merge on September 7. Recorded in four different studios, the record is the culmination of humanity’s attempt at something poignant, perverse, and poetically imperfect.

lyrics

Hold out your hand stranger 
here's something for later 


Light it up to watch it burn 

a future we're creating 
I watched it turn into a long lost dream 



Respected and vaunted 

cause I knew what I wanted 


Light it up to watch it burn 

a future we're creating 
I watched it turn into a long lost dream

Death Valley Girls // "Disaster (Is What We're After)"



Who'd have thought watching Iggy Pop eat a cheeseburger could be so enjoyable? Well, Death Valley Girls sure prove it's more than just enjoyable it's downright Rockin'!




At the core of Death Valley Girls, vocalist/multi-instrumentalist Bonnie Bloomgarden and guitarist Larry Schemel channel a modern spin on Fun House’s sonic exorcisms, ZZ Top’s desert-blasted riffage, and Sabbath’s occult menace. On their third album Darkness Rains, Death Valley Girls churn out the hypercharged scuzzy rock every generation yearns for, but there is a more subversive force percolating beneath the surface that imbues the band with an exhilarating cosmic energy. 

Album opener “More Dead” is a rousing wake up call, with a hypnotic guitar riff and an intoxicating blown-out solo underscoring Bloomgarden’s proclamation that you’re “more dead than alive.” The pace builds with “(One Less Thing) Before I Die”, a distillate of Detroit’s proto-punk sound. At track three, Death Valley Girls hit their stride with “Disaster (Is What We’re After)”, a rager that takes the most boisterous moments off Exile On Main Street and injects it with Zeppelin’s devil’s-note blues. Darkness Rains retains its intoxicating convocations across ten tracks, climaxing with the hypnotic guitar drones and cult-like chants of “TV In Jail On Mars”.
