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.

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.

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.
