    This Just In: Who You Gonna Call?

    posted by Emile

    I’m a huge Ghostbusters fan. Like, so huge I’m in the midst of having a GB uniform tee-shirt tailored into a dress – it’s Spengler, of course. On par with my other childhood love, Gremlins, GB has been a constant in my life. And now, as this summer is the 30th anniversary of the original film’s release, all sorts of celebratory items have popped up. I wish I had space for a Stay Puft LEGO figure, but in lieu of that, an LP of the OST will do nicely. Yes, it’s cheesy as hell, but who cares? It’s Ghostbusters! Pick up a copy, hunt down a sixer of ecto-cooler and jam out!

    This Just In: The Congress

    posted by Emile

    Last year, one of my favorite contemporary composers, Max Richter, released the soundtrack to Ari Folman’s film The Congress. At the time it was only available as CD/digital, but this week a limited vinyl version was released by the soundtrack masters at Milan Records. The Congress isn’t the first time Richter’s done film work and it’s the second time he’s worked with Folman, having also done the soundtrack for Waltz With Bashir. Aside from his soundtrack work, Richter’s solo efforts are some of my most listened to albums of the past decade. If you’re into what you hear with The Congress, I highly recommend checking out the solo works (Infra is my personal favorite).

    Max Richter – The Congress OST LP (180g white vinyl, ltd. to 500):
    Watch: The Congress Trailer
    Listen: Max Richter – “Ending And Beginning”
    The Congress is the sophomore feature film by acclaimed director Ari Folman. Mixing live action with gorgeous, psychedelic animation, The Congress is a sci-fi tale about an aging, out of-work actress (Robin Wright playing an alternate reality version of herself) who accepts her final job: preserving her digital image for a future Hollywood. Ari Folman reunites with composer Max Richter (Waltz With Bashir, Disconnect, Sarah’s Keys…). Highly musical, the film features a beautiful and harmonious score ranging from epic, sweeping tracks to electronica renditions of classical partitions by Frederic Chopin and Franz Schubert. The album also includes new versions of the famous ‘Forever Young’ and ‘If It Be Your Will’ produced by Max Richter and performed by Robin Wright.-Milan Records
