Soundtrack zu Only Lovers Left Alive in Neuauflage bei Sacred Bones

Sacred Bones Records, ohnehin Stammlabel vom Jozef van Wissem und Jim Jarmush, bringen Anfang Mai eine Neuauflage des Only Lovers Left Alive-Scores in verschiedenen Editionen neu heraus. Der Hauptteil der Musik zum nachdenklichen Liebesvampirdrama wird von den barocken Klängen des niederländischen Lautenspielers und von SQÜRL, der Avant-Noise-Americana-Psychedelic-Band von Jim Jarmusch, Carter Logan und Shane Stoneback bestritten. Ebenfalls zu hören sind Zola Jesus und Madeline Follin (Cults), ein besonderes Gastspiel gibt die libanesische Sängerin Yasmine Hamdan (ex-Soap Kills), die mit ihrer Band den Song “Hal” live in einer Bar in Tanger darbietet. Der Soundtrack wurde 2014 von ATP Recordings veröffentlicht und war lange vergriffen. Die Neuauflage erscheint in verschiedenen 2xLP/CD-Editionen mit verschiedenem Bonusmaterial.

“Avant-Baroque lute weaves through twenty-first century guitar grit, heavy back beats, Moroccan percussion, synth bass, field recordings, and numerous sonic effects to create a cinematic tapestry. The physical formats of the soundtrack have gone out of print and in the years that have followed it has remained a favorite of critics and fans alike, who have continued to hunt down the limited vinyl copies in existence.  Sacred Bones is thrilled to bring this incredible soundtrack back into circulation. Only Lovers Left Alive which is set against the romantic desolation of Detroit and Tangier, features an underground musician (Adam, played by Tom Hiddleston), who is deeply depressed by the direction of human activities. He reunites with his resilient and enigmatic lover (Eve, played by Tilda Swinton). Their love story has already endured several centuries at least, but their debauched idyll is soon disrupted by her wild and uncontrollable younger sister (Ava, performed by Mia Wasikowska). Can these wise but fragile outsiders continue to survive as the modern world collapses around them?” (Sacred Bones)
