Our Next Soundtrack Announcement on KMFA

Our friend Brian Satterwhite, the online authority of all things soundtracks, is dedicating a whole episode of his radio show to Mondo records. He will be playing a few tracks from various Mondo titles, including our newest releases CORALINE & PARANORMAN (on sale now)

But the real exciting part is that we have also given Brian a few tracks from our next, as of yet unannounced, soundtrack release. Tune in to get a taste of whats to come in May.

Brian’s show airs tonight at 9PM on 89.5 KMFA or streamed live via the radio web site at www.kmfa.org The I Heart Radio app also carries KMFA for those folks that use that. KMFA also has its own mobile app. Anybody with an internet connection can hear it via the web site or mobile apps.

If you can’t listen tonight, it also re-airs on Saturday at 5PM CST. We are super excited about this one. We hope you tune in.

Prometheus Sale Update

The PROMETHEUS poster for sale today is canceled. After we revealed the image yesterday, we were made aware that parts of that design resembled those of another image. We did not know that this was the case and now that we do, we’re pulling the poster.

We’re not down with this type of thing and truly apologize to everyone out there and thank you for letting us know that this happened. You guys are awesome and we really appreciate the heads up and support.

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:

First time ever available on vinyl
$30

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.

Mondo Gallery: Martin Ansin and Kevin Tong Gallery Signing this Saturday, March 15th!

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.

Please feel free to direct any other questions to us using the CONTACT section of the website right HERE.

Thanks and we’ll see you all this weekend!
