Pedro Bromfman's Narcos
21-Aug-2015 - Lakeshore Records will release the soundtrack for the Netflix original series Narcos digitally on August 21st and on CD later this year. The album features the film’s original score by Pedro Bromfman and the main title theme song “Tuyo” by Brazilian artist Rodrigo Amarante. “Conceptually speaking, I had this idea that the music for NARCOS could be somewhat inspired by Sergio Leone’s westerns,” said Bromfman. “Colombia in the late 80’s and early 90’s reminded me of those towns you see in Westerns, dominated by a gang of outlaws. In those films, someone from out of town will usually come and help the locals defeat the bad guys. As people watch Narcos they’ll be able to see the parallels I drew, however in Colombia they had a much bigger and more complicated situation.”

Stephen Warbeck’s Je Te Survivrai
19-Aug-2015 - The latest release of MovieScore Media arrives from France and is provided by Academy Award winning composer Stephen Warbeck. Je Te Survivrai (I’ll Bury You) is about forty-something property broker Joe who is at the top of his game when it comes to his job, but is a failure in all other aspects of life. Still, the most despicable thing he does is his plan to expropriate and old lady, an idea which leads him down a pit where he could stop his victim’s water supply – the only problem is he can’t get back on the surface. Stephen Warbeck’s score is an eclectic mixture of Western-flavored twang, laid back jazz and contemporary Euro-thriller scoring for moments of great suspense. One of the strongest characters of the score is the desolate landscape represented by the guitar-based themes introduced in “The Angry Neighbour” and further shown in “In the Well”, showing us Joe’s hopeless situation of finding any help.

Daniel Pemberton's The Man From U.N.C.L.E.
9-Aug-2015 - WaterTower Music has released the soundtrack to director Guy Ritchie’s action adventure The Man From U.N.C.L.E. It features original music composed by BAFTA-nominated composer Daniel Pemberton (LittleBigPlanet, The Movies, The Counselor), who took inspiration from Richie’s unique and inimitable style. With the film being set during the Cold War, Pemberton was allowed to musically explore the period while adding contemporary elements from around the world. The composer describes the score as a “kaleidoscope of international color,” with the sounds of cimbaloms, flutes, guitars, bongos, and more incorporated into the music. “Writing a score set in the 1960s was a dream come true for me. There is a boldness to the way music was written and recorded in this era that allowed me to go all in in a way that you can’t get away with in most contemporary films,” explains Pemberton.
Available from Amazon.com, Amazon UK, Amazon France and Amazon Germany.

Guy Farley's Maria di Nazaret
22-Jul-2015 - Caldera Records will present the original score for the television movie Maria Di Nazaret from 2012. The two part movie was a huge success in Italy as it recounts the story of Jesus’ mother Maria and accompanies her throughout the life of the son of God until his death on the cross. The music was written by British composer and conductor Guy Farley who delivers probably his most diverse score to date, featuring lush orchestral melodies for orchestra and choir as well as female vocals and solos for ethnic instruments, played by Tony Hinnigan. Additionally, included is another score by Farley: L’Uomo Che Sognava Con L’Aquile was written for an extensive Italian television production with Terence Hill. And finally a bonus cue with the much beloved track Reunited from the Jean Claude van Damme movie Wake Of Death which receives its premiere release here. For more info, visit Caldera Records.
Lalo Schifrin's Serial
21-Jul-2015 - Quartet Records and Paramount Pictures present a 2-CD set with the world premiere release of Serial, an infectious catchy score composed and conducted by legendary composer Lalo Schifrin, including the also catchy unused score composed by Kenny Ascher. Lalo Schifrin provided a stunning melodic score, dominated by the song “A Changing World,” with lyrics by Norman Gimbel and performed by Michael Johnson. This tune is the key theme of a score in which you can find disco seventies music, hippie sitar sounds, jazz waltzes, frantic orchestral chases or a beautiful love theme. A hidden gem in the filmography of the composer! Curiously, the Schifrin score was not the first choice for the film. Kenny Ascher composed and recorded first a score that was rejected. Ascher's music is charming and melodic. It is written in essentially the same style as Schifrin’s—in fact, both scores are perfectly interchangeable.

Richard Band's The House On Sorority Row
13-Jul-2015 - La-La Land Records presents acclaimed composer Richard Band’s original motion picture score to the beloved 1982 horror/thriller The House On Sorority Row. Considered by fans as one of the most beautiful indie horror music of its era, Mr. Band’s orchestral score is thematically rich and absolutely teaming with drama and suspense. Like Rosman’s film itself, the score sets its sights higher than most of the 80’s slashers the movie has often grouped with, and the result is a rewarding and sumptuous listen. Produced by Richard Band, this re-issue has been remastered by James Nelson and expanded with previously unreleased bonus tracks (this bonus material is sourced from mono elements). All-new and exclusive liner notes from Daniel Schweiger (featuring new comments from the composer and director), and classy-creepy art direction from David C. Fein compliment this exciting release.

John Morris' Blazing Saddles
7-Jul-2015 - Silva Screen Records presents Blazing Saddles. A physical release of composer John Morris’ pitch-perfect score to Mel Brooks’ great Hollywood comedy, this 40th anniversary edition is the most complete version yet with 28 tracks that also incorporates some of the most hilarious dialogue from the film. This was Morris’ fourth film score and his third one for Brooks' movies (after The Producers and The Twelve Chairs). In collaboration with John Morris, Brooks skilfully also created a magnificent score that refined every possible musical cliche connected to westerns from swirling strings to choral refrains. Drawing upon Yiddish theatre and early vaudeville skits influences, Brooks produced a glorious, gag-packed parody of the western genre.
