This week is the official release of Mondo and Death Waltz's first book - aptly titled THE ART OF SOUNDTRACKS. In collaboration with our friends at Insight Editions, we have curated a selection of our favorite albums from the last 10 years (can you believe our labels are almost 10 years old!?) and put them together into a beautiful hardbound book, with an intro by Michael Giacchino, and an oral history by Todd Gilchrist.
We want to thank everyone that has purchased the book so far, and everyone that has made the last ten years so unforgettable. We are humbled and amazed that you have taken us to your hearts and record collections, and we're excited to enter our second decade as a record label.
We really hope you enjoy it and, if your favorite album is missing, please let us know what you'd like to see in Volume 2!
To celebrate the book's release, we'll be welcoming Matt Kessler of TOO MANY RECORDS fame to hang out on our Instagram page this Wednesday. At 5:30PM CST, he'll be hosting a live chat on Instagram Live, with both Spencer and Mo (and we may even give a couple of books away), so prime up the good questions for us, please. (Yes, THAT THING YOU DO is still coming soon, and Spencer is still not entirely convinced about releasing THE ROCK).
We've been fans of the TOO MANY RECORDS for a minute now, and we are excited to be working with Matt, who is super passionate about all things vinyl. We hope this is the start of a great working relationship with Matt and his channel.
We'll see you on Instagram this Wednesday.
Spencer, Mo and Shannon

A visually stunning and deliciously “pop” collection of art inspired by the soundtracks of films, video games, and more.
Mondo: The Art of Soundtracks highlights the all-original art created exclusively for Mondo’s vinyl releases by world-renowned artists for film, television, and video game soundtracks. Featuring stunning new takes on classic and modern material, this collection reinvigorates the bygone era of unique and collectible vinyl record artwork.
From vintage re-creations to new interpretations, from digital and painterly to photographic and abstract, the record art compiled in this volume captures the spirit of the record label that reinvigorated the soundtrack industry, in a beautiful mash-up fit for a book—or record shelf.
