Music Weekly: Celebrating Italian Cinema

Ciao everyone! Hope you had wonderful weekend.

This week we're celebrating the music of Italian cinema, counting down to the premiere of the Netflix Original Series MASTER OF NONE - Season Two. Fans of the show know that Season One had incredible music, and we have it on good authority that the music of Season Two, which spends a portion of its time in Italy, has some killer music as well. Check it out when it drops this Friday, May 12th on Netflix.

We are also thrilled to be helping our friends at Beat Records in Italy celebrate 50 years in the soundtrack business!  Over the years they have worked with every Italian composer you could mention and are seriously responsible for our love of Italian Soundtracks. We are honored that they have chosen us to be the exclusive distributor of their anniversary titles which are all limited to just 300 copies worldwide!

Check out the first release below by Roberto Pregadio - IL MEDICO...LA STUDENTESSA - available this Wednesday at 12PM CST, plus a selection of our favorite Italian releases the last 12 months that are currently available on our site.

DISTRIBUTED TITLES
Il Medico...La Studentessa Original Soundtrack LP. Released on Beat Records. Pressed on Black vinyl complete with an obi strip. Limited to 300 copies worldwide. $25

Il Medico...La Studentessa is composed by Maestro Roberto Pregadio, an absolutely sublime slice of Italian easy listening goodness. Mixing lounge Bossa Nova rhythms, Hammond organs, and odd vocals (courtesy of Alessandroni’s Cantori Moderni), he manages to make incredible earworms that will stay with you for days (Bi-Di-Bi-Da is a prime example). Pregadio is vastly underrated and practically unknown outside of Italy, which is why this record is the perfect first release to celebrate Beat Records rich and diverse history in film music.

AVAILABLE NOW

DEATH WALTZ
The Poliziotteschi Files 2XLP (Rome Armed To The Teeth / The Cynic, The Rat and The Fist) 2XLP. Pressed on 180 Gram Black Vinyl. Art by Jay Shaw. One-off limited pressing of 500 copies. $35

ROMA A MANO ARMATA (aka ROME ARMED TO THE TEETH) & IL CINICO, L’INFAME, IL VIOLENTO (aka THE CYNIC, THE RAT AND THE FIST) are presented for the first time ever on vinyl. Micalizzi soundtracks these violent cop thrillers with an incredible one-two punch that filters David Shire's THE TAKING OF PELHAM ONE TWO THREE score through the crazed Italian house style that is rightly obsessed over by soundtrack fans worldwide.

Micalizzi's scores both feature a gripping main theme, which is the magnificent musical backbone that binds the pieces together, sounding both like a classic seventies slice of crime drama and the beginning of a thousand hip-hop samples. Effortlessly cool, Micalizzi dominates with a fat trumpet line that branches off into fragments with some incredibly funky breaks, Herrmannesque tense strings, and the most infectious basslines since DAZED AND CONFUSED. It's just absolutely badass – up there with the best of Cipriani, Umiliani, and yes, Morricone. Essential.

DEATH WALTZ
Contraband - Original Motion Picture Score LP. Original Score by Fabio Frizzi. Artwork by Graham Humphreys Layout by Jay Shaw. Pressed on 180 Gram Brown vinyl with three different red splatters (Limited to 500 Copies). $25

Fabio Frizzi’s score to the 1980 Lucio Fulci thriller CONTRABAND is surely one on the Maestro’s funkiest excursions record for Lucio Fulco. The main theme is a wonderful melody that is reprised throughout the score with a suitable touch of melodrama. Frizzi’s talent for catchy tunes is always apparent, whether it includes the stereotypical wah-wah pedal effects or some grooving slap bass.

Kept modern by mixing traditional orchestral elements with electric guitar and a wailing sax, there’s always a degree of underlying tension, mainly coming from the brass section, and there’s some amazing moments featuring a big organ and a sleazy keyboard riff. This is even before the uber-catchy ‘You Are Not The Same’, one of Frizzi’s many contributions to the songs of moviedom. Another excellent Frizzi/Fulci-fest!

DEATH WALTZ
The Case of the Scorpion's Tail (aka La Coda Dello Scorpione). Music by Bruno Nicolai. Sleeve Design and Layout by Eric Adrian Lee. Mondo Exclusive pressed on 1x Black / Yellow Split Vinyl & 1x Red / Black Split Vinyl, housed inside a 435gsm gatefold sleeve. $30

Death Waltz Recording Co. is ecstatic to shock and thrill you with another classic slice of senseless violence and beautiful melodies from the Giallo playbook with Bruno Nicolai's score to the 1971 Sergio Martino mystery, THE CASE OF THE SCORPION'S TAIL (aka La Coda Dello Scorpione).

SCORPION'S TAIL opens with the main theme, a haunting melody on guitar that repeats while a thick bass lurks in the background to underline the hard edge that comes with the genre tropes. A beautiful jazzy waltzing piece on strings and piano brings some real class, while electronics and brass provide nail-biting tension, which Nicolai capitalizes on with avant-garde jazz techniques, the omnipresent bass grounding the more surreal and dissonant elements. A soundtrack enthusiast's wet dream, The Case of the Scorpion's Tail is one of the greatest Giallo scores ever recorded.

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY: Poster + Enamel Pins!

This week marks the triumphant theatrical return of our favorite galactic saviors in GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2. We could not be more excited about a new MCU entry and to see what James Gunn has up his sleeve this time around. In celebration, tomorrow we will have a gorgeous new poster for the first film, GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY, by the stellar Paolo Rivera, plus a selection of enamel pins inspired by the characters.

The poster and pins will be available at a random time tomorrow (5/5) via mondotees.com.

Guardians of the Galaxy by Paolo Rivera 
24"x36" Screen Print, Edition of 375
Printed by D&L Screenprinting
$55

For his poster, Paolo wanted to focus on the fantasy influences on the film, choosing to render the art in the style of an old pulp magazine cover as the Guardians go to battle with a giant tentacled beast. Paolo's line work and detail is simply stunning and we couldn't be more impressed with the final result. 

Here's what he had to say about the poster:
"Way back in 2013, my Marvel editor, Steve Wacker, asked me to do a series of three covers for a team I had only heard about in passing. He sold me on the idea by letting me do a tribute (of sorts) to Wallace Wood, one of my favorite artists. I designed the faux logo, penciled and colored the covers, and my dad, Joe Rivera, inked them. But it wasn't until we saw the movie together that we became fans. When Mondo offered us the opportunity to continue the series with the movie versions, we jumped at the chance."

The Thing: Infection at Outpost 31 Board Game

THE THING: INFECTION AT OUTPOST 31 Board Game

We're thrilled to announce THE THING ™ INFECTION AT OUTPOST 31, our very first board game in collaboration with USAopoly’s designer games division, Project Raygun. The regular version of the game will be in stores and online nationwide this October, and a limited edition Mondo exclusive version will be available at MondoTees.com.

Sign up for our INFECTION AT OUTPOST 31 newsletter here to stay up-to-date with release info.

An alien lifeform has infiltrated a bleak and desolate Antarctic research station assimilating other organisms and then imitating them. In the hidden identity game THE THING ™ INFECTION AT OUTPOST 31, you will relive John Carpenter’s sci-fi cult classic in a race to discover who among the team has been infected by this heinous lifeform.
 
The game has been designed to be as authentically cinematic as possible, ensuring that the players will experience the paranoia and tension that makes the film so great.
 
"Mondo brought more than their storied design acumen to the table," said Joe Van Wetering, Creative Design and Game Development at Project Raygun. "Thanks to their deep understanding and reverence for THE THING, they helped define the tone and shape the game play itself. INFECTION AT OUTPOST 31 reflects a true collaboration between our two brands resulting in a game that will excite table top and film aficionados alike."

The regular version of the game features artwork and designs by Justin Erickson of Phantom City Creative. The Mondo exclusive version, sold exclusively through MondoTees.com, is limited to 1,982 copies, and features different packaging artwork by Jock. The limited edition game will also come with a Mondo print, enamel pin and two additional sculpted movers: the Norwegian character and the Palmer Thing.
 
Commenting on the design, artist Justin Erickson said, "with THE THING box art, I wanted to focus on the isolation of Outpost 31 and hint at the hidden alien dangers that lurk around every corner. The title of the game cut out of the ice/snow is a call back to the Thing originally being cut out of the ice by the Norwegians."

The Thing™ Infection at Outpost 31 Gameplay
It is the start of the bleak, desolate Antarctic winter when a group of NSF researchers manning the claustrophobic, isolated U.S. Outpost 31 comes into contact with a hostile extraterrestrial lifeform. Bent on assimilating Earth’s native species, this being infiltrates the facility—creating a perfect imitation of one of the Outpost 31 crew. The staff frantically begin a sweep of the base, desperate to purge this alien infection before escaping to warn McMurdo Station that somewhere, out there in the frigid darkness, something horrible is waiting.
              
In THE THING™ INFECTION AT OUTPOST 31, relive John Carpenter’s sci-fi cult classic as a hidden identity game designed to push you to the edge. Play as one of a dozen characters like helicopter pilot MacReady, mechanic Childs, or station manager Garry. Face sabotage and infection as you investigate the facility—gather gear, battle The Thing, expose any imitations among you, and escape Outpost 31!
              
Tension mounts and paranoia ensues as you question who you can trust in the ultimate race to save humanity.

Music Weekly: Wojciech Golczewski's THE SIGNAL

Hey all - this week we have the stunning new LP for you by Wojciech Golczewski on Death Waltz Originals. THE SIGNAL is Wojciech's second release with us and it's an absolutely beautiful synth record.
 
All new releases go on sale Wednesdays at NOON (CST).

DEATH WALTZ ORIGNALS
The Signal – Wojciech Golczeski LP. Art by Ron Guyatt. Pressed on 180g Black, Purple & Red Space Void vinyl. Includes Download Card. $20

Wojciech Golczewski’s second LP on Death Waltz Originals is actually a prequel to his 2015 debut, REALITY CHECK, and the second part of a proposed trilogy to be finished in 2018. This time the emphasis is on super minimal widescreen sci-fi ambience. The record is absolutely epic in scope and features lush synth arrangements with melody lines that bubble just under the surface, creating a multi-layered listen perfect for late nights and dark rooms.

We’re thrilled to continue working with Wojciech, and later in the year we'll be releasing his score to the great '80s throwback BEYOND THE GATES, too!
