Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross – Empire of Light (Original Score) [The Null Corporation]
Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross have once again created an impressive soundtrack. This time the duo have created a sixteen-track collection of elegant and alluring piano soundscapes backed with subtle orchestration for Sam Mendes’ romantic drama Empire of Light. Culled from four days worth of music, the soundtrack is a testament to what can happen when two musicians take on a monumnetal task for a film only two hours long.
Standout Songs: The Sea, The Sea, New Year’s Eve, To The Wild Sky, A Touch, High Windows
Emotional Oranges – The Juice Vol.III
L.A.-based duo Emotional Oranges have returned with their third installment in the “Juice” trilogy. Dripping with 90’s R&B vibes, the 8-track project is short but sweet. One thing is clear — the duo have tapped into something special, and we’re excited to hear where they go next.
Standout Songs: Bounce, Petty, Make Me Wanna
