    Lost Themes

    John Carpenter has been responsible for much of the horror genre's most striking soundtrack work in the fifteen movies he's both directed and scored. The themes can instantly flood his fans' musical memory with imagery of a menacing shape stalking a babysitter, a relentless wall of ghost-filled fog, lightning-fisted kung fu fighters, or a mirror holding the gateway to hell. The all-new music on Lost Themes asks Carpenter's acolytes to visualize their own nightmares.


    "Lost Themes was all about having fun," Carpenter says. "It can be both great and bad to score over images, which is what I'm used to. Here there were no pressures. No actors asking me what they're supposed to do. No crew waiting. No cutting room to go to. No release pending. It's just fun. And I couldn't have a better set-up at my house, where I depended on (collaborators) Cody (Carpenter, of the band Ludrium) and Daniel (davies, who wrote the songs for I, Frankenstein) to bring me ideas as we began improvising. The plan was to make my music more complete and fuller, because we had unlimited tracks. I wasn't dealing with just analogue anymore. It's a brand new world. And there was nothing in any of our heads when we started other than to make it moody."


    As is Carpenter's style, repetition is the key to the thundering power of these tracks, their energy swirling with shredding chords, soaring organs, unnerving pianos and captivating percussion. Horror fans will be reminded of Carpenter's past works, as well as ancestors like Mike Oldfield's Tubular Bells and Goblin's Suspiria.


    "They're little moments of score from movies made in our imaginations," Carpenter says. "Now I hope it inspires people to create films that could be scored with this music."

    The Recognitions

    While many couples can trace the real-time rise and fall of their
    relationship back to social media feeds and harried phone calls,
    Aleksa Palladino and Devon Church have channeled the highs
    and lows of their storybook courtship into something else
    entirely: the explosive, discomforting confessionals of
    Exitmusic. The mercurial project started the year they got
    married (2004) and all-but-imploded during their recent divorce,
    but not before the duo wrapped its most fully realized collection
    of beautifully damaged music yet titled The Recognitions.


    It wasn't easy, though, for the band has always had to balance
    its writing and recording sessions with Palladino's career as an
    actress in such acclaimed television shows as Halt and Catch
    Fire, The Sopranos, Boardwalk Empire, Storytelling and Before
    the Devil Knows You're Dead.


    Our relationship finally cracked when Aleksa took a break from
    recording to work on a film in Iowa, explains Church. It takes
    place on a lake so deep, indigenous people believed it had no
    bottom, and was a portal to the spirit world. When Aleksa
    returned from shooting, I could tell immediately something
    major had shifted. She described an experience of standing up
    in a boat on the lake and seeing her reflection in the water, and
    having the realization that we had only been living on the
    surface of life-that there were fathomless depths to be
    explored if we were able to set each other free.


    That feeling makes itself known right from the very beginning of
    The Recognitions, as Crawl abruptly shifts from a sinister-butsubdued
    intro-think: Beach House re-scoring Suspiria-to a
    full-on exorcism, a fearless, fang-baring fight for one's life that
    leaves a trail of blood, sweat, and tears behind. Things slow
    down slightly amid the quivering strings, bold shuffleboard
    beats, and minor-key melodies of Iowa, but there's no
    denying what a wildly expressive diary entry this album is by its
    end. That goes for everything from the bittersweet piano
    balladry of The Distance to the queasy rhythms and delirious
    hooks of Criminal.
