Hi everyone! This week we are paying tribute to another of our favorite animation studios, Portland-based LAIKA, responsible for some of the best animated features of the last 10 years (Coraline, ParaNorman, The BoxTrolls, and now Kubo and the Two Strings)
We have two pre-orders going up: a new release of Kubo and the Two Strings soundtrack and a re-pressing of our Coraline soundtrack with new packaging and disc color. As always all new releases go on sale Wednesdays at Noon (CST).
Kubo And The Two Strings - Original Soundtrack 2XLP (PRE-ORDER). Composed by Dario Marianelli. Featuring song performed by Regina Spektor. Artwork by César Moreno. Pressed on 2X 180 Gram Colored Vinyl (Disc One: Sun Colored, Disc Two: Moon Colored). $30
Mondo is proud to present the soundtrack to Laika's fourth animated feature: Kubo and the Two Strings. Composed by Dario Marianelli (The Boxtrolls), and featuring an incredible cover of George Harrison's classic "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" by the inimitable Regina Spektor.
Kubo continues the masterful legacy of Laika Animation Studio's filmography: incredible visuals and craft, and equally powerful soundtracks. The film is Dario's second time composing for the studio, this time dabbling in Japanese instrumentation to bring our titular hero's journey to life.
Coraline - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack 2XLP. Music by Bruno Coulais. Featuring song performed by They Might Be Giants. Artwork by Michael DePippo. Pressed on 2x180 Gram Purple & Blue Swirl Colored Vinyl. $30
Mondo is proud to reissue the soundtrack to Laika’s 2009 feature length debut, the stop-motion animated masterpiece Coraline.
The soundtrack to Coraline is as haunting as it is whimsical. With the help Budapest Orchestra and Choir behind him, composer Bruno Coulais captures the dark child-like imagination of the titular protagonist with menace and aplomb.
