What you can’t see can hurt you…..
We are thrilled to be bringing you two absolutely killer releases this week! First up we have Benjamin Wallfisch's score to Leigh Whannell’s THE INVISIBLE MAN this week in partnership with our friends at Backlot Music. The film smashed the box office this past weekend and is one of the finest horror movies in a long time. The score by Ben Wallfisch is an absolute tour de force and highly recommended. We are super stoked to be working with both of these guys again.
Next, we are also excited to bring you Brooke & Will Blairs score to BLOOD ON HER NAME a Southern gothic-neo noir that drips with tension and dread. The film is one of my favourite films I saw on the festival circuit last year, and we couldn't be prouder to be releasing both digitally and on vinyl. To see if the film is playing near you check here.
As usual, new releases go on sale on Wednesdays at NOON (CT) via mondoshop.com.

Ben Wallfisch has delivered an incredible muscular score for The Invisible Man, Mixing classical strings, synths & Industrial noise it is both organic and synthetic, pummelling you one minute and barley there the next. Honestly, this hasn’t left my headphones since we were sent it. Wallfisch expands on the sonics of his IT scores and while there are inspiration and nods to Bernard Herrman in the urgency of the string section it feels contemporary and timeless. An astounding achievement.

What would you do if you accidentally killed someone? Death Waltz Recording Company invites you to ponder this with the haunting score to Matthew Pope & Don Thompson's film BLOOD ON HER NAME, composed by Brooke and Will Blair (GREEN ROOM, I DON'T FEEL AT HOME IN THIS WORLD ANYMORE). A unique Gothic-noir meditation on classic themes of honesty and tragedy, the film asks the audience how they would react after a fatal incident, and how far their conscience would allow them to go. Underlining this is a score that reaches into the dark pit of your stomach, where your feelings lie.
"BLOOD ON HER NAME is a score that is built around atmosphere and tension. In an almost Poe-like narrative, it pulsates and undulates; it's both incredibly unsettling and serene in its beauty, delving into the murkier sounds that you'd expect while also taking on strangely ethereal tones. But when you think you might be comfortable, it transforms into something jarring, capturing that biting doubt reaching up from inside you. The tension rackets up and something launches itself at you, forcing you to react on instinct without giving any mind to the consequences. And you will, there's no doubt about that."
