Lots of great new albums are dropping today to get us rockin’ through the weekend! All of these albums and more are now streaming on Apple Music and Spotify.
Static EP – The Wrecks
Per Hollywood Life:
Static plays out like an act in four parts. The title track is a distortion-filled bop about regret and disappointment at letting a loved one down. It segues into “I Hope It’s Cold In New York,” a chilly reflection on when your loved one gets engaged to someone who isn’t you. As if on cue, “Good For Nothing” brings in the anger and rage — “When you’re gone / you’re gone for good / and good for nothing” – that comes when you’re grieving a loss. The EP closes out with “Try To Remember,” a final acceptance that it’s all over, and the struggle to remember the good moments as they fade over time into faded images and static.
When it comes to the score by Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross, it sounds unlike anything you’ve heard in a Pixar movie before. It has a real ethereal and otherworldly quality to it that jibes well with all the wild imagery that comes from The Great Before and The Great Beyond, the worlds that deal with souls before life and after life.
Wonder Woman 1984 Soundtrack
Per Zanobard Reviews:
Hans Zimmer’s Wonder Woman 1984 is a spectacular return to superhero form, featuring several brilliant themes (both exquisite new and iconic old) as well as an abundance of standout action and romantic setpieces, all bound together by a love theme that’s quite simply out of this world.
Cyberpunk 2077 Radio Vol. 2
Per HipsterZOMBIEJoint Experience:
The second entry into the Cyberpunk 2077 Radio is filled with synth heavy, pulsating techno and indie rock flair. The soundtrack is headlined by the single “Delicate Weapon” by Grimes. Grimes floats airy vocals over a synth melody in the song. It’s easy to imagine the track playing while you cruise through a neon drenched city. The track has been featured heavily throughout the ad campaign for the game and has been teased by the game developers for awhile. In the game the artists featured in it go by different stage names. Grimes’ name of example is Lizzy Wizzy.
