Last week, my favourite radio DJ Benji B’s had a Soundtrack Special where he indulged us in the records in his soundtrack crate including music from composers like Ennio Morricone (timely as he’s playing here this weekend), Cliff Martinez, John Barry, Bernard Herrmann, Vangelis, Giorgio Moroder, Chromatics, Angelo Badalamenti, Jon Brion and more. Films included Taxi Driver, Akira, Wildstyle, Paris, Texas, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Rocky, Drive, Bladerunner, The Taking of Pelham 123 and From Russia With Love. It was mega.
You can listen to the whole show here til Thursday but in case you don’t get to listen til after, you can listen to a Spotify playlist below of all his selections. One track I’d add in there is ‘Nique La Police’ from the La Haine soundtrack. What are your favourite unknown soundtrack tracks?

Part two will look at the present day club scene from promoters to bedroom producers, DJs, labels and more. If you want to get involved and participate in some way visit asantalamh.tumblr.com.
Taken from The Golden Filter’s Syndromes EP which is drawn from the Kristoffer Borgli-directed short film and soundtrack that the band provided recently (watch below), the motorik electro of ‘Mother’ gets the remix treatment from London/Toronto duo Au Palais on this cut. More from them via Bandcamp. (more…)

I’m sure you’ve all heard of the box office hit 500 Days of Summer starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Zooey Deschanel by now. This short clip, which doesn’t appear in the movie makes me want to see it for sure (that and the fact that the official Culch.ie crush Zooey Deschanel is in it).
The song is ‘Why Do You Let Me Stay Here?’ by Zooey’s band with M. Ward, She & Him.
