alec cheer Night Kaleidoscope - Original Soundtrack (LP, £17.50)label: trunk
INCREDIBLE MODERN ELECTRONIC-BASED SCORE TO UNDERGROUND PSYCHEDELIC DETECTIVE VAMPIRE INDIE DRAMA. SO THERE. There is little history here as this is a new release – but this is simply an amazing modern score to a film you may never have heard about (one directed by Grant McPhee). What sets this score apart is it’s clinical post-modern feel – with influences including Mica, John Carpenter, Brian Eno, Goblin, Fabio Frizzi, even with whispers of the 1980s, as well as a musical feel a little like the classic Drive soundtrack. Yet with all these influences composer Alec Cheer somehow manages to create a new work that sounds unlike any other. It’s dark, bewitching, mesmerising, ear-catching and even “banging” in parts. Look, it must be good, otherwise Jonny Trunk would not be pressing it. And with a spelling mistake too.
