Repeated Viewing - Three Sisters Main Titles (2015)

Giallo fans, you are in for a treat!  My label Wil-Ru Records just released a new three track single by Repeated Viewing (Alan Sinclair) featuring the main titles from his upcoming full length soundtrack for Dáire McNab's modern day neo-giallo murder mystery film The Three Sisters.  The title track is a dark moody theme reminiscent of the classic late 70s Italian soundtracks by Goblin, Libra and Fabio Frizzi (to name a few) utilizing gritty electric guitars, piano, analog synthesizer, driving drums and pulsating bass lines and even some female choirs.  Also featured on this single are two exclusive bonus tracks; the Carpenter-esque "Wanderer" and my personal favorite "The Horror Of Bexteth Hill", which sounds like a lost theme from some forgotten Jess Franco gothic vampire flick with it's heavy breakbeat and staccato harpsichord shredding (think Alessandro Alessandroni's theme for Devil's Nightmare).  The single features cover art by yours truly and also includes desktop wallpaper graphics for those who like to play creepy dress up with their computer backgrounds... 

The full score should be out within a month from now (fingers crossed) on CD and Digtial formats.

The single is free and can be downloaded here.  Enjoy!

Autumn Moon - Compiled & Mixed by The Cowboys From Sweden (2015)

Okay, here's a new Cowboys from Sweden mix I finished today called Autumn Moon. It was intended to be a Fall/Winter mix, so naturally with my luck it lands ironically on the first day of Spring! Anyway, it's a mix of trippy psychedelic folk/pop and library songs from the late 60s and early 70s. Also I believe this is the first Cowboys mix that is entirely in English (and includes only 3 instrumentals). I thought a lot about my time living in Prague (featured on the cover) when I made this, so the mood is pretty old, overcast, grey and dreamy. To quote the film The Science of Sleep, this mix is roughly based on the themes of "Love, friendships, relationships... and all those 'ships' "... I hope you enjoy, it's a moody one!

Ripped at 320 kbps, includes front and back covers.

Get it here.

Prince Da Baroda - Que C'est Triste Un Monde Sans Amour/Indira 7" (1970)

Okay, it's been a while since I've posted anything new here.  So here's an obscure little treat for fans of bizarre seven inches.  Here we have a two track single by Prince De Baroda.  I assume he's a real prince, but haven't had much luck finding out anything about him (feel free to fill me in).  Anyway, oddly enough these songs are sung in French and are quite beautiful actually.  On the A side we have "Que C'est Triste Un Monde Sans Amour", an nice melodic ballad actually written by Patricia Carli and on the B side we have "Indira" written by E. Marnay and J.P. Calvet, another pretty love ballad.  The most important thing to point out here is that these tracks were produced by Jean Bouchety who happened to compose one of my favorite KPM lps (The Magic of Bouchety) and a million other things.  So on both tracks we hear that signature Bouchety sound with an obvious eastern flair (sitars, tablas etc.).  But overall this is similar to the typical French pop sound, nice break beats, strings, groovy bass lines.. The works.  I'm not sure what else to say about this one.  I guess if you are aware of it already, I think we'd get along quite well.  This records doesn't exactly appear out of thin air, it took a bit of work to track it down.  So hopefully some of you will enjoy it as well.  320 rip from vinyl.  Include cover scans. Enjoy.

The Cardamom Diaries - Compiled & mixed by The Cowboys from Sweden (2014)

It is with great pleasure that I present to you the latest mix by the The Cowboys from Sweden titled "The Cardamom Diaries". An 80 minute non-stop schizophrenic mix of moody widescreen gems, ranging from cerebral jazz funk, to heavy soundtrack and library psychedelia, bombastic vocals, classical overtures, tender themes for romance and other cosmic fantasies... I have spent a lot of time digging and ripping for this one and I feel it one of my favorites so far.  I hope you feel the same.  That's all I will say.  The music will speak volumes on it's own behalf.  Comments are always appreciated.  Thanks for listening and enjoy the new sounds!

Ripped at 320 for your discerning ears.

And for those of you who still see the value in owning tangible objects, I've included a printable album cover with the download. So all you will need is a printer, some paper, a blank CD-R, scissors, glue and a sharpie. After completing the craft, you will have a nice little CD! It's up to you to get creative with the disc face.

Due to size, the mix is available here in two parts:
