The Roots & The Force Awakens cast sing Star Wars a-cappella.

Is this the song you’ve been looking for? The Roots & The Force Awakens cast sing a Star Wars a-cappella. Very tuneful guys and gals, but don’t embrace the dark side and do a rock version of this, okay?

Psy rocks it Daddy-style (because Gangnam wasn’t enough).

That mighty son of K-pop, Psy, is now rocking it Daddy-style, because Gangnam-style wasn’t enough. Catchy? Check. Silly? Check. Kind of rock-y? Check. K-pop stars, start your motors, because it’s time for some Psy-Fi! Now, how long before some South Korean-types do a version of this taking the &^*( out of the North Korean regime, I […]

John Williams’s Film Music by Emilio Audissino (book review).

Italian author Emilio Audissino makes a very potent remark in his introduction that there are few books about modern day film composers. As famous as John Williams is, there are only three books about him and they aren’t even in English. As such, Audissino wrote a degree thesis on him, before the next stage of […]

Torchwood: The Conspiracy by David Llewellyn (CD review).

There are changes afoot at Big Finish because…drum roll it looks like it might be canon! Since the sad demise of AudioGo a couple of years ago, there have been an empty space there the ‘New Who’ audios used to be. There is an established customer base, youngsters who might not buy old ‘Doctor Who’ […]

Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. (Original Soundtrack Album) by Bear McCreary (CD review).

Under consideration here is the ‘Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ soundtrack composed by Bear McCreary. Now the thing with movie and TV programme soundtracks in general (I’m not talking about musicals here), is that they were written as supporting material. They were not conceived as something separate from the film/TV program, to standalone by themselves. That […]

Spectre’s Writing’s On The Wall (new Sam Smith Bond theme).

I don’t know much about Sam Smith’s music, but he’s cranked out a right stonking Bond theme for the new SPECTRE movie. Loved the last trailer, too. Let’s hope the film lives up to the early promise.

The Fantastic Four (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) By Marco Beltrami and Philip Glass (CD theme review).

The fact that Phillip Glass co-scored this Marvel movie alongside Marco Beltrami is something of a surprise. Whilst the renowned US minimalist composer has flirted with genre before with films such as ‘Candyman’, this is the first time that he’s worked on a bona fide Hollywood blockbuster in ‘The Fantastic Four’. Alongside Beltrami, who has […]
