Vinyl Record News & Music Notes

from our friends at NewOnVinyl


The soundtrack is composed by Golden Globe and Grammy Award winning French composer Alexandre Desplat, who burst onto the Hollywood scene in 2003 with his evocative score to Girl With The Pearl Earring. From this point on he contributed the soundtracks to a rich collection of highly successful movies such as Syriana, Golden Compass, The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button, Twilight Saga: New Moon, Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows (Part 1&2) and The King’s Speech as well as Monuments Men.

Starring Keira Knightley, Benedict Cumberbatch and Matthew Goode, The Imitation Game portrays the race against time by Alan Turing and his team of top-secret British code-breakers during the darkest days of World War II. The film spans the key periods of Turing’s life: his unhappy teenage years at boarding school; the triumph of his secret wartime work on the revolutionary electro-mechanical bombe that was capable of breaking 3,000 Enigma-generated naval codes a day; and the tragedy of his post-war decline following his conviction for gross indecency, a now-outdated criminal offence stemming from his admission of maintaining a homosexual relationship.

Proud Like A God is the debut album of German Alternative Rock band Guano Apes. The album was released in 1997 and it includes the hit singles “Open Your Eyes”, “Rain” and “Lords Of The Boards”.

The album was certified Platinum in Germany and Switzerland. Sandra Nasić’s vocal range and calling the album a “well-blended mix of sweet Pop and bruising Rock, with a little bit of electronica- informed loops and ambience thrown in for good measure.

The album made them a popular European concert draw with its punk- and alternative-flavored Hard Rock, establishing them enough for RCA to issue the album in the U.S. in 1999.

The first pressing of this Nineties Euro alternative classic will come in transparent green/black vinyl, with every copy numbered.

ENNIO MORRICONE’s legendary score for THE BIG GUNDOWN (Italian LA RESA DEI CONTI) is so densely packed with pathos and drama that run so deep into the listener’s mind. Using almost the same great talents shown on SERGIO LEONE’s “The DOLLAR’s Trilogy” with the orchestra conducted by fellow BRUNO NICOLAI and the mighty twangin’ guitar of ALESSANDRO ALESSANDRONI, the MAESTRO Morricone deliver similarly outstanding results!

BoySetsFire's 'The Misery Index: Notes from the Plague Years' Vinyl Reissue  

Back in 2006, after releasing a record on the same label that invaded early 2000's modern rock radio with Creed and Evanescence, post-hardcore veterans BoySetsFire returned to Equal Vision Records for the North American release of their lauded fourth studio album, The Misery Index: Notes from the Plague Years, with Epitaph imprint Burning Heart handling worldwide release. The record appeared on Billboard's Top Heatseekers and Top Independent Albums charts and expanded the band's sonic palette (piano, string instruments, horn sections) beyond their already adventurous, aggressive and melodic sound. "It is pertinent, it is intelligent, it deals with issues that should be dealt with, and it does so in a listener-friendly manner," said in a 4.5/5 review upon release. "It's the album that BSF needed to make, and they came through with resounding success.”

The Misery Index: Notes from the Plague Years was never made available on vinyl in the U.S. when originally released, and now Bridge Nine is proud to release the album for vinyl collectors stateside. For the first time ever, this landmark BSF release will get the deluxe B9 vinyl treatment it deserves; colored vinyl, bonus download code, poster insert, and more.

Look for this to be available in stores and online as of January 13th, 2015.
