NEW RELEASE:
THE QUEEN’S GAMBIT - Music From The Netflix Limited Series 2XLP
In proud partnership with Netflix, Mondo is pleased to present Carlos Rafael Rivera’s Emmy award®-winning score to Netflix’s breakout 2020 show, THE QUEEN’S GAMBIT, written and directed by Scott Frank.

For the show, Carlos Rafael Rivera delivered one of 
the stand-out scores of the last few years. Unusually, this is an entirely classical score: rich, sumptuous and utterly beguiling. The music is certainly a character in the show, reflecting Beth’s life ... from meditative solo piano pieces, representing her early years growing up in an orphanage, with instruments and themes added throughout, as the years progress.

Rivera was quoted as saying, “Having such a complex protagonist as Beth Harmon, I wanted to avoid writing a ‘Beth Theme’, but rather themes for different aspects of her character: addiction, genius, mischief, growth, and more. By resorting to these, I could apply and develop them throughout the seven episodes, as Beth herself developed, helping create a more holistic representation of her character.”

THE QUEEN’S GAMBIT - Music from the Netflix Limited Series 2XLP. Music by Carlos Rafael Rivera. Artwork by Alan Hynes. Liner notes by Charlie Bridgen. Mastered for vinyl by Darren Page. Pressed on 2x 140 Gram Color Vinyl. Housed inside a 3D optical illusion die-cut jacket, with two bespoke die-cut inner sleeves. $35

DISTRIBUTED TITLES:

BRITT - KHAMAI LION (Burning Witches Records), Mondo exclusive

BRITT (aka Brittany Allen) is a multi-disciplinary artist. On the heels of a successful career as an actor, she is now emerging as one of the most exciting young female composers to watch. Her first score was for the critically acclaimed indie What Keeps You Alive (SXSW’ 18), a New York Times Critic’s Pick. She then followed that up with her “soul-tugging score” for Z, one of AMC Shudder’s most-watched films of 2020. Most recently, Allen scored the fan favorite “Feral” episode of American Horror Stories. 


Allen crafts moving, dark, melodic themes and fresh, edgy sounds, leaning deeply into a character’s emotional journey. As a songwriter, her propensity to dark material meets her pop sensibility, and she is a true solo act, having written, produced and mixed all of the tracks on Khami Lion.

As an actor, Allen is an Emmy award® winner, and was most recently celebrated for her iconic turn as Popclaw in Amazon’s The Boys. 


BRITT - KHAMAI LION. Mondo exclusive pressed on Red / Yellow vinyl, featuring a free 7-inch single non-album cut, "The Impossible." Download card and insert with liner notes. $33

IAN ALEX MAC - DEAD OF NIGHT (Burning Witches Records)


Dead of Night is a haze of retro-sounding synths, with modern driving drums and nods to the horror films and grunge bands that inspired it. Full of cinematic moves and the neon glow of the ’80s, there is a strong emphasis on the melody from the outset that won’t fail to draw you into its night-stalking universe.

"I wanted to combine my love for faster, driving drums, with the synth hooks of old films and TV shows. Sounds inspired me more than anything and low, dark, grumbling synth reminded me of cheap old zombie films." – Ian Alex MacIan


Ian Alex Mac - Dead of Night LP. Pressed on transparent blue vinyl. Limited to 300. Includes download code. $30

STILL AVAILABLE:
