Broadcast's soundtrack to Peter Strickland's horror film Berberian Sound Studio, finally in on import Warp wax! This original soundtrack had been in the works since before singer Trish Keenan's sad and untimely passing in 2011. The band ultimately completed the work using recordings made with Keenan, and the result is absolutely stunning. As a dense collection of short soundscapes and fractured interludes, this incredible, yet haunting piece picks up where their collaboration with The Focus Group (2009's Investigate Witch Cults of the Radio Age) left of. Gone are the quirky synth pop vibes from earlier works, fully replaced by eerie strings, creeping organs, and general sounds of terror and fear. Fans of Italian horror soundtrack masters Goblin, Popol Vuh, or even Portishead will have plenty to wrap their head around here. As you might expect, this soundtrack ended up being the perfect accompaniment to an incredible film. 39 tracks in all with free MP3 download, recommended.
