If you haven’t seen Netflix’s Stranger Things, then I strongly advise you to do so. Part supernatural-horror-thriller and part homage to 1980s genre films (E.T., Stand By Me) the eight-part series is a fantastic watch and the mood and atmosphere is perfectly framed by the title credits and the accompanying music.
The synth heavy soundtrack is was composed by Michael Stein and Kyle Dixon of the electronic band Survive and echoes works by John Carpenter, Tangerine Dream and Vangelis.
Invada Records are releasing volume one of the music on 2LP red/blue vinyl with the two records packaged in an extra thick 425g heavyweight gatefold sleeve. A printed insert is included which features additional artwork and credits.
There will be a ‘volume two’ though and a box set containing both LPs will be announced at “a later date” but perhaps that won’t arrive until the second series is completed next year.
This 2LP set will be issued on 28 October 2016.
