PARANORMAN, CORALINE & RECORD STORE DAY

This month Mondo is celebrating the works of LAIKA Animation Studios with the premiere release of the soundtracks to both CORALINE & PARANORMAN on deluxe limited edition vinyl. LAIKA has created two of the greatest animated films of the last decade, and we are honored to be paying tribute to both. The scores to CORALINE & PARANORMAN couldn’t be any more different. But they are both equally as incredible. Both records will be available for sale on our website on April 22nd. A special edition of PARANORMAN will be available at select Independent retailers as part of Record Store Day on April 19th.

CORALINE
Original Motion Picture Soundtrack
Music by Bruno Coulais
Original Song by They Might Be Giants
Artwork by Michael DePippo
2XLP Pressed on 180 Gram Black vinyl with randomly-inserted Black & White Swirl Vinyl
First time ever available on vinyl
$32

The soundtrack to CORALINE is haunting, and beautiful. With the help Budapest Orchestra and Choir behind him, Coulais captures the dark child-like imagination of the titular protagonist with a menace and aplomb. Without seeing the film you can follow the musical journey of the story from Coraline’s angsty reality, to her dreamy uneasiness, to the ultimate unravelling.

Check out the artwork and sample a track from the score below:

For those familiar with the works of Jon Brion (Magnolia, Punch Drunk Love) you’ll immediately recognize the melancholy, ear-worm melodies in his score to ParaNorman. Mixed with 80′s slasher throwback motifs and a whimsical family sensibility it is a terrific score front-to-back.

We are very excited to have artists Martin Ansin and Kevin Tong in attendance for their duo show opening this Friday, March 14th. Many of you have been asking if they will be signing posters at the show, so we wanted to post a small FAQ to cover everything. Please see below.

Q: Will the prints at the show be signed?
A: Yes. Martin and Kevin will be signing all of the prints that are available to purchase at the gallery before the show opens. There is no need to worry about getting those signed.

Q: What about other prints? Can I bring other posters for Martin or Kevin to sign?
A: We will not be able to accommodate any additional signings during the opening reception on Friday night. However, Martin and Kevin have graciously agreed to host a signing on Saturday, March 15th starting at 12PM at the gallery.

Q: How many posters can I get signed on Saturday?
A: There will be a strictly enforced limit of 3 posters per person per artist. So, it’s totally cool if you want to bring 3 posters for Martin to sign and 3 posters for Kevin to sign. Please be considerate of your fellow collectors and Martin and Kevin’s time and do not bring more than 3 posters to have signed.

Q: Can I bring non-Mondo posters for Martin or Kevin to sign?
A: Yep!

Q: Will Martin/Kevin be able to do any sketches or doodles?
A: Unfortunately, no. Due to time restrictions, we will not be able to accommodate any requests for sketches. Apologies for any inconvenience.

Mondo Vinyl: THE OMEN On Sale Info!

TheOmen1

As Bloody Disgusting premiered yesterday, we will be releasing THE OMEN Original Motion Picture Soundtrack by Jerry Goldsmith on vinyl on March 4th, 2014 and it will feature amazing new artwork by Phantom City Creative.

Not too much else to report on the subject, but we did want to address an issue that will effect this edition in the long term.

TheOmen2

The image above is of a third variation of THE OMEN soundtrack that we unfortunately won’t be able to sell on March 4th. Limited to 800 copies, the “Striped” record quite simply has some audio issues that the others don’t, and we are currently getting it repressed to correct this. We don’t know when the repress will arrive, since most plants are bottlenecking due to Record Store Day. It could be a month or two at this point.

We just want to be as transparent as possible, so that when these variants do eventually go on sale you are aware that these aren’t from a second edition pressing. As with all of our records, these are one-time, limited edition pressings.

More info to come. Thank you, as always for supporting our soundtrack label. We have so many more exciting titles coming in the next few weeks / months. We can’t wait to share them with you.

 

HERE COMES THE DEVIL and BLUE SUNSHINE On Sale Info!

UPDATE: Just a reminder that due to the differing shipping methods, we are not able to combine shipping of Blue Sunshine VHS orders with any vinyl or poster orders. VHS orders will ship separately. That said, we also cannot combine any vinyl orders with poster orders. You are allowed to purchase as many records as you’d like, but we can only ship 2 records per shipment.

___________________________________________________________________________________________________

This Friday, 2/21, we will be making the regular edition of BLUE SUNSHINE available on our website, as well as releasing our vinyl edition of HERE COMES THE DEVIL.

A special thanks to everyone who came out to the screening of BLUE SUNSHINE last night. It was a blast to see it on the big screen, and a reminder of why we were so excited for this release in the first place.

Thank you for supporting our soundtrack label. This is going to be a big year for us and I can’t wait to share what titles we have in store. We’ve already teased some, but we’re just getting started. Stay tuned for an announcement in the next few days about our next soundtrack release.

We’re Releasing BLUE SUNSHINE on Vinyl and VHS!

We are very excited to announce that we are issuing the soundtrack to BLUE SUNSHINE on vinyl for the very first time. We will also be reissuing the film on limited edition VHS!

Featuring artwork by Jay Shaw and remastered for vinyl by James Plotkin, this deluxe first time pressing on vinyl is limited to 1,000 copies. Pressed on 180 gram heavy weight black vinyl with a randomly-inserted translucent blue variant.

The clamshell packaged VHS, limited to 400 copies, is available in BLACK and randomly-inserted BLUE cassettes.

In celebration of both releases, this coming Monday 2/17, Mondo & Music Monday are pleased to present a 35mm screening of the cult classic film at the Alamo Drafthouse Ritz in Austin with writer/director, Jeff Lieberman, in attendance. We will be premiering the Blue VHS and a special Blue Iris colored vinyl (limited to 200 copies) at the screening event.

More about the film below:
Jerry Zipkin is a nice guy. He graduated top of his class. He’s respectful of women. He’s in love. It seems like Zipkin’s got it made, until the night one of his friends loses his hair to spontaneous alopecia totalus, freaks out and throws three innocent women into a fireplace. Now Zipkin’s on the run from the law, wrongfully accused, trying to prove his innocence. It turns out others are going bald and going on murderous rampages. It’s up to Zipkin to find the missing link. It turns out they all have one thing in common, and that one thing is called BLUE SUNSHINE.

Writer/director Jeff Lieberman will be in attendance to talk about the film, as well as sign copies of the soundtrack and VHS.
