I’m enough of a fan of Stranger Things, and the soundtrack by Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein of the band S U R V I V E, that I’ve already posted a 10 minute version of the theme song.

Tomorrow though, the real retro-synth horror-style soundtrack by Stein and Dixon comes out in Volume One with a second volume next Friday and a track from it ‘She’ll Kill You’. Both on Lakeshore Records.

The Duffer Brothers, the show’s directos were previously fans of the Austin band and used their music in the first pitch to Netflix. Once picked up, the band were brought on board. S U R V I V E meanwhile are releasing a second full length album on September 30 via Relapse.

I’ve also been recently enjoying this playlist of songs featured in the series.

If you’re like me, you’re currently obsessing over the Netflix TV show Stranger Things and its mix of ET, The Goonies, Pan’s Labyrinth, Close Encounters, Stand By Me, Silent Hill and Super 8. Stephen King meets Steven Spielberg meets Guillermo Del Toro.

While the four kids are the big stars of the show, the music makes a deep impression with its John Carpenter-esque pulses and throwback electronic horror style. The music was made by Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein of Shorthour also of Survive, a band from Austin, Texas.

For those of us who can’t get enough, someone put together a ten minute version of the theme (a mix of the intro and outro)
