The Golden Filter premières ‘Syndromes’

The Golden Filter have premièred their ‘Syndromes’ short film on the Future Shorts YouTube channel.

I won’t give away any spoilers ‘cos it’s embedded just below and only ten minutes long, so you should watch it. I don’t know of The Golden Filter or director Kristoffer Borgli would thank me for calling it a post-modern superhero movie, but I’m going to anyway.

The soundtrack is amazing!

The movie is officially released along with the New York avant-Disco duo’s soundtrack on the 10th.

Chromatics’ track from Drive

chromatics

So, buy now you know how awesome the Drive soundtrack is, featuring the likes of Kavinsky and College alongside Cliff Martinez’ electronic score.

It also features ‘Tack Of the Clock’ from Chromatics’ excellent album ‘Night Drive’. Edited down to fit the scene by Chromatics and Johnny Jewel the track wasn’t released independent of the album. So Johnny has uploaded it to SoundCloud saying this “A lot of people have been asking about the different version they are hearing in the film. The original “Night Drive” version is around 15 minutes long. Nat Walker (Chromatics / Desire) & i reconstructed it from the original tapes in order to make it heavier in the theatres & cut it to the picture. What we didn’t know was…the soundtrack people weren’t going to let people get it individually. They are trying to rope you into buying the whole album… But all the kids really want is Desire, Kavinsky, & College… So here it is for free. Pass it on. xo johnny jewel”.

Check out the atmospheric, tense, electronic throb of ‘Tick Of The Clock’:

The Golden Filter: Syndromes

We knew The Golden Filter were up to something!

It seems the have been colluding with Scandinavian filmmaker Kristoffer Borgli on a short movie called ‘Syndromes’. All involved would probably devastated to hear me call it a superhero flick, but to me that’s not an insult. It appears to be a move about a girl with an ‘ability’ and the people who exploit that ability. Check the trailer.

the Golden Filet have also soundtracks the short, here’s the Ladytron-esque title track, Mother’.

♫ The Golden Filter – Mother (Theme From Syndromes)

‘Syndromes’ premières 10th October.

Lazerhawk remakes Powerglove’s ‘Hunters’

the-plague

There’s a moment in the Grindhouse movie Hobo With A Shotgun that introduces the badassery of two armoured demons/cyborgs know as The Plague. This murderous slaughter scene is soundtracked by a Powerglove track called ‘Hunters’.

‘Hunters’ has never been released (although the whole track is on one of the DVD extras for the movie) so Powerglove’s peer Lazerhawk has released his own version of the track into the wild. Lazerhawk’s take on ‘Hunters’ is just as intense as the original. Total John Carpenter-esque 80’s synth movie music with a dancefloor twist. Driving and powerful with a hint of horror, the digital bass and icy lead lines will keep you captivated.

Pirate Radio Documentary

 PirateRadio

Something a little different now but I though some of you, especially readers from the UK might get a kick out of this.

No pun intended with the ‘kick’ remark, as this short documentary about the history of Pirate Radio in London was commissioned by Palladium Boots as part of their ‘Explorations’ series. Don’t let that put you off though, it’s actually a fascinating (albeit brief at 16mins) look at those DJs and radio techs who (like us music bloggers) can’t help but let their love of music vent somewhere.

Having grown up listening to pirate radio, just the atmosphere that this documentary provokes puts a nostalgic smile on my face.

You can watch the whole documentary, ‘Exploration #6 – London Pirate Radio’ online here: http://www.palladiumboots.com/exploration/london-pirate-radio

The Banksy movie is real!

Shrouded in mystery and left off the official programme to retain secrecy, street artists Banksy’s first movie ‘Exit Through The Gift Shop’ premieres at the Sundance Film Festival this year. The story of a French shop keeper with a mission to film the graffiti artist at work takes a turn when Banksy the camera on him. The trailer has just hit YouTube:

Exit Through The Gift Shop is due to open at cinemas in the UK 5th March.

Daft Punk to score Tron 2.0

DaftPunk2

Upcoming Film Scores have had it confirmed to them by Walt Disney Pictures that French Electro giants Daft Punk will be providing the score for Tron 2.0 (or TR2N), the sequel to 1982’s cyberspace blockbuster.

It seems to me that this could be absolutely perfect. Daft Punk have dabbled in film before but this will be their first full score for a major movie, if they can pull it off I really see this being something special!

I just hope they get David Warner back as the Master Control Program!

M.I.A. at The Oscars!

mia

So, the Oscar nominations are in.

Heath’s Joker for Best supporting Actor…”check”!

‘The Dark Knight’, ‘Iron Man’ and ‘Hellboy II’ getting nods in the special effects and make-up categories… a pleasantly surprising “check”!

No love for ‘The Dark Knight’ in best picture or best director categories…an disappointingly unsurprising “check”!

Best original song is an interesting one though:

WALL-E – ‘Down To Earth’ – Peter Gabriel & Thomas Newman

Slumdog Millionaire – ‘Jai Ho’ – A.R. Rahman

Slumdog Millionaire – ‘O Saya’ – A. R. Rahman & M.I.A.

That’s right, British/Sri-Lanken Electro MC M.I.A. being recognised by the Academy…nice!!! The Slumdog Millionaire soundtrack was also released on M.I.A.’s N.E.E.T. label.

The Oscars  roll around 22nd February.
