    Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World Soundtrack

    On Red Vinyl!


    The soundtracks to movies adapted from comic books are often marketing free-for-alls; promoting bands takes precedence over choosing songs that make sense for the film. However, nothing could be further from the truth for Scott Pilgrim vs. the World's music. Since so much of the comic revolves around the bands that the characters play in, the film was already somewhat protected from having a bunch of random songs crammed into its soundtrack, but the film's creative team ensured that the music was done right. Director Edgar Wright's other films (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, etc.) boast soundtracks that brim with personality onscreen and play more like mixtapes than albums in their own right; that feeling continues here with picks like Beachwood Sparks' By Your Side, T. Rex's Teenage Dream, and Frank Black's I Heard Ramona Sing.


    The musicians who bring the comic's bands to life are just as cleverly chosen. Beck revisited his slacker-punk roots with the songs he wrote for Scott's band Sex Bob-Omb; though they're performed by Michael Cera and the other actors in the film, Threshold, Summertime, and Garbage Truck still have Beck's gloriously messy early-`90s vibe to them. Later, he contributes Ramona, a dreamy ballad that sounds more like his 2000s work. Meanwhile, Broken Social Scene are Crash and the Boys, the rival band whose I'm So Sad, So Very Very Sad lasts a whopping five seconds. Every part of the soundtrack shows how much care went into it, from choosing artists like Broken Social Scene and Metric to nod to the story's Canadian setting, to the 8-bit version of Threshold that reflects Pilgrim's immersion in video games. The sweetest detail may be the song that started it all: Scott Pilgrim, by the Canadian all-female band Plumtree from their 1997 album Predicts the Future, holds within it all the breathless true love and crunchy guitar goodness that sparked the comic.


    Somehow, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World's music remains true not just to the comic, but to the work of everyone involved in the story at every stage, with plenty of fun and heart to boot. ~ Heather PharesEntertainment Weekly (p.75) - 'Garbage Truck' is the keeper, with a fuzz-punk groove that's no laughing matter.

    Scorpion Child

    Black Double-LP in Gatefold

    Includes Bonus Track and Poster. Side D: Etched!


    Hooks: a musical idea or short riff, passage, or phrase that catches the ear of the listener. Some bands have 'em, most don't. Austin-based five-piece SCORPION CHILD have 'em in spades. Whether it's an extended blues jam or a short slice of bombastic heavy rock "The Child" lay a hook so tasty everyone bites. SCORPION CHILD come from lots of different places, not only logistically but musically. Their sound heralds back to early 70's kraut and psych-rock with a modern twist and lists PENTAGRAM, HAIRY CHAPTER and LUCIFER'S FRIEND as influences. They originally formed in 2006 and have spent the last few years perfecting both their songwriting and stage presence. Aryn Jonathan Black fronts the outfit with a siren-like voice reminiscent of a young Robert Plant. Guitarists Christopher Jay Cowart and Tom Frank layer high-energy twin-guitars over the band's driving rhythm section fueled by Shaun Avants (bass) and Shawn Alvear (drums). "Our influences are diversified as classic 80's thrash metal to the old school southern blues of Blind Willie Johnson, Lemon Jefferson and Willie McTell," says Black. "We came to Austin to form a band with a single vision and though we've played in different bands with a range of styles, after jamming together, we found our footing in what we do best." Balancing full-time jobs at coffee shops and bars around town forced the group to be very disciplined. "Austin's a great city to develop and hone your skills musically," admits Black. "Every genre can be found here from blues and jazz to punk and hardcore." In 2010, after years of slogging it out in the Austin scene, SCORPION CHILD gained peer recognition with critical praise from local and regional press while selling out high profile gigs at SXSW. The stage was set for the band's recording debut. After songwriting sessions in Nashville, the band spent last year recording their self-titled album with Grammy-nominated producer Chris "Frenchie" Smith known for his work with THE ANSWER, JET, AND YOU WILL KNOW US BY THE TRAIL OF DEAD, DAX RIGGS, and many others). The result is a hybrid of nine, hook-filled heavy-psych classics that breathe new life into a stale hard rock market. Their music erupts with big drums, thunderous guitar riffs and dangerous soul ridden bass lines. Black's powerful rock vocals convey a sexiness and swagger not heard since the days of FREE and HUMBLE PIE. A surge of electricity bursts from the first notes of "Kings Highway" to the pummeling drive of "The Secret Spot" and the highly addictive open-chord "Liquor". Built for the big stage is "Salvation Slave" which hearkens back to a time when guitar rock ruled the airwaves and made going to a concert the ultimate main event. Building on dynamic tension comes the acid-infused "Antioch", a progressive number with hypnotic beats and subtle shades of light that build into a blinding guitar duet. A galloping pulse distinguishes "In The Arms of Ecstasy" as a celebration of groove that is followed by the raw unchained riffage of "Paradigm". The album concludes with the slow building "Red Blood (The River Flows)" which continues to attract comparisons to LED ZEPPELIN. "We do have this whole acoustic side that sounds very ZEPPELIN III with a lot of gospel", says Black. "ZEPPELIN were very innovative and not afraid to go outside the usual confines of electric blues. I guess that's where the comparison comes from." Recently signed to legendary metal label Nuclear Blast the band has pulled "Polygon of Eyes" as their lead single. A nod to DIO-era RAINBOW, the song is four minutes of power-heavy rock plowing through an ancient storyline of swords and mystics. Says Black, "I've always wanted to hear new musical ingredients within a classic heavy sound. We want to maintain spontaneity while putting special emphasis into integral hooks." As vinyl continues to gain momentum, SCORPION CHILD with Nuclear Blast have plans to release their debut in June 2013 as a glorious gatefold edition with different colored vinyl in each pressing. Building up to the debut release was a large-scale tour with CLUTCH and UK's ORANGE GOBLIN the perfect event to introduce SCORPION CHILD to the masses. Several summer festivals are to follow including Rock The Range and Rocklahoma. The band join an elite few including THE SWORD, GRAVEYARD, WOLFMOTHER and RIVAL SONS who celebrate a warm Marshall and liquid feedback while still pushing boundarie

    Shaun Of The Dead Soundtrack (Out Of Stock)


    180 Gram Clear Red Vinyl Re-Press


    While aware that they were working on a comedy, composers Daniel Mudford & Pete Woodhead wanted to make a score that was deadly serious and let the comedy do its own thing. "We wanted to "play a straight bat," as the English say, and treat the film as though it was a sincere and genuinely terrifying scenario." says Mudford. In doing so, they crafted a score that fits in perfectly along side the great horror scores that inspired it.


    Pete & Dan's band, 'The Sons Of Silence,' was previously featured in Edgar Wright's television show Spaced before it became part of the behind the scenes soundtrack to the writing, and casting portions of production of the film. "Indeed, many of the doomier, dubbier tracks of from The Sons of Silence would blend in perfectly with my playlist, made up of John Carpenter scores, Goblin rock outs and library tracks from Dawn of The Dead. So even before Dan and Pete were definitely scoring the movie, they were already scoring the movie." Says Edgar.
