Hey all - big one this week! We're super excited to release two all-new horror scores - the soundtrack to the 1999 Survival Horror classic game, SILENT HILL, and 2017's criminally under-seen, THE GIRL WITH ALL THE GIFTS.
Also, we're excited to launch a Free Domestic Shipping / $10 Flat-Rate International Shipping promo today through Sunday (4/16) for all vinyl and CDs. Just in time, too, as we have a bunch of really fun re-stocks including copies of CASTLEVANIA, Joe LoDuca's EVIL DEAD: A NIGHTMARE REIMAGINED 7-Inch, and an all new colorway of TURBO KID (Chronicles of the Wasteland) 2XLP.
All the titles below go on sale Wednesday at NOON (CST).
Silent Hill - Original Video Game Soundtrack 2XLP. Music by Konami Digital Entertainment. Artwork by Sam Wolfe Connelly. Pressed on 180 Snowfall Colored Vinyl. $30
Mondo is proud present the premiere vinyl release of the soundtrack to the haunting 1999 original Playstation title, SILENT HILL.
Set in the eponymous town of SILENT HILL, you play as Harry Mason after a car crash leaves you stranded and searching for his missing adopted daughter, Cheryl. But this town is not what it seems, and Harry quickly discovers that his daughter's disappearance may be a connected to the town's mysterious cult activity.
Don't let the tone of the plucky mandolin driven opening track fool you; this is one of the most haunting soundtracks we've ever released. Full of hair-raising, pulse-pounding, industrial cues, the soundtrack to SILENT HILL is the stuff of nightmares. Which is important, since SILENT HILL (and its subsequent sequels) has its feet planted firmly in the legacy of survival horror gaming.
Pressed on 2X 180 Gram "Snow Fall" Colored Vinyl (Clear with Heavy White splatter) and featuring original artwork by Sam Wolfe Connelly.
The Girl With All The Gifts - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack 2XLP. Music by Cristobal Tapia de Veer. Artwork by Jay Shaw. Disc 1: 180 Gram Green and Brown Swirl Vinyl. Disc 2: 180 Gram Red and Orange Swirl Vinyl. $35
We are absolutely thrilled to finally work with composer Cristobal Tapia de Veer. His work on the UK TV show UTOPIA is one of our most played records of the last few years, and he is surely one of the most original and unique voices in the world of soundtracks of the last decade. The fact that we get to work with him on one of the best zombie films in years is the icing on the cake.
Breathing new life into a stale genre is so hard to do, but THE GIRL WITH ALL THE GIFTS turns the genre on its head, managing to be intelligent, thrilling, scary and funny without sacrificing the gore or characterization. De Veer’s score is nothing short of astounding; it's haunting, beautiful and so multi-layered that we still haven’t tired of it after six months of constant listening. Here he delivers one of the standout scores for 2017 with all the hallmarks of a future classic. De Veer is one of the most exciting composers working today, creating eerie atmospheric pieces of music underscored with manipulated human voices that add a real sense of unease and tension to the film, but also create a truly unique listen as a multi-layered standalone record.
Available digitally now on our Bandcamp page.
BACK IN STOCK
Evil Dead: A Nightmare Reimagined 7-Inch Single. Music by Joe LoDuca. Artwork by Jason Edmiston. Pressed on Black Vinyl. $10
Joe LoDuca's score to EVIL DEAD is one of soundtrack collectors' most sought after horror scores. Legend has it that the original masters have long been lost.
Twenty-five years later, Joe has crafted an all-new reimagined score for his 1981 Horror classic titled A NIGHTMARE REIMAGINED. This single, featuring the "Overture" from the new score, is from the forthcoming full length LP.
Turbo Kid - Chronicles of the Wasteland. Original Motion Picture Soundtrack 2XLP. Music by Le Matos. Available on limited edition Yellow, Green & Red Turbo void vinyl. $35
Propelling this insanity is an incredible score that cherry picks its influences from the best of electronic film music from the past thirty five years, running the gamut from the inevitable John Carpenter bleedthrough – with some beautifully malevolent atmospheric pieces – to riffing off of the classics of Van Halen all the way through to Modern French electronic music from the like of Daft Punk & Ed Banger Records.
TURBO KID is diverse but not disparate; it plays fast and loose but not at the expense of cohesion, so there are moments where you can just lie back and relax to the mesmerising ambience and dream of authentic alien landscapes, or freak out to the best of the 80’s hedonistic synthpop, or let yourself be inhabited by an eerie chill from the evocative electro-goth vocals. TURBO KID – A place beyond your dreams, a record beyond your imagination.
DEATH WALTZ ORIGINALS
Le Matos - Join Us 2XLP. Pressed on 180 Gram Red & Grey Swirl vinyl. Limited to 500 copies. $35
Long overdue repress of the first (self-released) Le Matos on Death Waltz Originals. Absolutely essential 80s influenced dance floor electro, as indebted to John Carpenter as it is to the first Daft Punk record. What Le Matos have in spades (apart from synths) is an ear for a killer melody (just check out ‘Molly,’ which manages to have the most hummable chorus ever despite having no lyrics). We love Le Matos and we are super stoked to be working with them on a new record for 2017!
Castlevania - Original Video Game Soundtrack 10". Music by Konami Kukeiha Club. Artwork by Becky Cloonan. Pressed on Black Vinyl $20

Nicolas Winding Refn Presents: Wicked Die Young 2XLP. Released on Milan Records. Pressed on 2X 180 Gram Colored Vinyl. $30
In 2016, Milan Records had the pleasure of releasing the soundtrack to Nicolas Winding Refn’s THE NEON DEMON composed by Cliff Martinez. The synth-heavy electronic score went on to be one of the most critically-lauded soundtrack releases of the year, making numerous “Best of 2016” critic lists along the way. Refn now returns with his latest creation: THE WICKED DIE YOUNG.
THE WICKED DIE YOUNG is the latest release in Milan’s “Nicolas Winding Refn Presents” series - a sublabel of releases curated by director Nicolas Winding Refn. Conceptualized as a companion album to THE NEON DEMON and curated by Refn, THE WICKED DIE YOUNG compiles the music that he was listening to while writing and shooting the film. This album is a unique opportunity to enter the musical mind of one of the most visionary contemporary directors. This eclectic selection confirms his love of music from the disco of Giorgio Moroder and Tommy Seebach to the punk and rock of Suicide and 999! The album also features exclusive tracks by Cliff Martinez, Electric Youth and Julian Winding. Available on vinyl, THE WICKED DIE YOUNG comes pressed on a pair of colored 180 gram vinyl discs housed in a beautiful gatefold jacket featuring liner notes by Nicolas Winding Refn.
