Birds of Prey Soundtrack

Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) is hitting theaters next month, continuing the story of Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie). Once the Clown Princess of Crime, the Suicide Squad character has cut ties with the Joker, and it somehow may have made her even crazier. But it’s all good, because she has a new girl gang to keep her company and deal with Ewan McGregor as the latest dude to give her troubles. And based on the recently released Birds of Prey soundtrack trailer, they’ll have some real bangers to keep the hype train moving along. Read More »

bird box score

Last year, Bird Box became Netflix’s biggest hit movie, setting the streaming giant’s seven-day records and inspiring dangerous memes. The film, which stars Sandra Bullock, takes place in a post-apocalyptic world that has been overrun by monsters that cause people who look directly at them to kill themselves. For a movie that’s all about sight (or lack thereof), Bird Box would have to rely heavily on sound. But one of the key composers behind that sound, Trent Reznor, who composed the Bird Box score alongside his frequent collaborator Atticus Ross, was not very happy with his experience working on the Netflix film.

mr. robot season 4 soundtrack

Mr. Robot composer Mac Quayle won an Emmy for his work on the first season of Sam Esmail‘s acclaimed USA hacker series, and his work has not slowed down since. Quayle’s dark, dissonant, synth-heavy score lends to the oppressive environment of Esmail’s techno-opera about a hacker (Rami Malek) battling an evil corporation and his own personal demons in the form of the titular Mr. Robot (Christian Slater). And you can purchase the moody Mr. Robot season 4 soundtrack this week — not complete with a hoodie and identity crisis. Hear an exclusive track from the Mr. Robot season 4 soundtrack.

Heads up: you can listen to John Williams‘ Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker score right now. Williams’ final Star Wars soundtrack is currently streaming on the Disney awards site.

Life On Mars Cover

The latest, jaw-dropping episode of Watchmen concluded with a gorgeous, low-key cover of David Bowie‘s “Life on Mars”, courtesy of Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross. The song choice might be slightly on the nose considering the scene it accompanies, but hey – it works. The “Life on Mars” cover will be included on the Vol. 3 release of the Watchmen soundtrack, but if you can’t wait until then, you’re in luck – it’s now available to listen to online. Spoilers follow.

knives out trailer new

Composer Nathan Johnson’s work spans a wide variety of genres, from low-budget film noir to high-budget sci-fi. He’s played in many different types of media (and with many types of instruments, as when he invented new ones to write the innovative score for Brick), so I was excited to see him try something more conventional by tackling the score for Rian Johnson’s new murder mystery, Knives Out.

True to form, the score for Knives Out is a delight. As with Johnson’s other work, he manages to infuse the old and the new, blending classical orchestral string instrumentation with a jazzy sensibility. Today, we are pleased to be able to bring you an exclusive track from the film. Below, you can listen an exclusive track from the film’s score.

It’s called “Beautiful Ghosts,” and I don’t know if it’s just me, but is Taylor Swift putting on a bit of a British accent during parts of this song? Listen to the Taylor Swift Cats song below and see what you think. Read More »
