Stranger Things / soundtrack on 2LP

strangerthings

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.

    This is good news – I was frustrated to see it was immediately sold out on the Relapse records website after this post the other day: http://boingboing.net/2016/09/13/stranger-things-soundtrack-on.html

    http://store.relapse.com/item/42316

    Any ideas on where (other than flippers on Ebay) to get the “mud spattered” variant shown on the first link?

  2. Chris Merritt says:

    Thanks Paul!

    The first season of this whow was absolutely amazing !
    But it also included several 80’s tracks…
    I’m not usually keen on these kind of soundtracks, but at least we can say that they make a real effort on this !

  4. baward says:

    I saw the first episode today and I must say I thought it was alright. Nothing special IMO but I may give it another chance. I don’t know anything about Survive; I wonder what Savage Garden and their 80’s Fairlight would have produced?!

  5. Colin says:

    Wonderful series with brilliant acting from all involved.

    Great soundtrack too but would really like to have seen some of the songs on this.

    When I heard Joy Division’s Atmosphere and New Order’s Elegia during the programme, it instantly went from brilliant to an instant classic.

    I also notice on Juno records they are giving details of a 4 LP box set

    “425g heavyweight gatefold sleeve”

    So now the vinyl weight fetishism has expanded to the sleeve, eh? Does it also come in three layers of extra-thick audiophile shrink-wrap?

    I think it’s worth noting that S U R V I V E have a new release due out September 30th named “RR7349″. I’ve been a fan for about three years now and it’s great to see them get this kind of press. I loved the series, soundtrack, and all of the great 80’s tracks perfectly placed into the episodes. Felt like the producers steamed one of my playlists: Joy Division, The Clash…not to shabby!

  9. Paul Mac says:

    Tangerine Dream have done released their cover version of the Stranger Things soundtrack, which can be heard via Soundcloud. Well worth checking out….

  10. Paul Mac says:

    “done released”…..good grief, I really need to proofread before I post in future!

  11. vinyllistener says:

    a quick misread had me thinking it was pressed on 425g vinyl.

    hahahahaha

    Where can I find the red and black swirl to purchase?!
