TRENT REZNOR AND ATTICUS ROSS’ ORIGINAL SCORE FOR THE NETFLIX FILM BIRD BOX IS OUT NOW

TRENT REZNOR AND ATTICUS ROSS’ ORIGINAL SCORE FOR THE NETFLIX FILM BIRD BOX
IS OUT NOW

“The soundtrack institution of Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross return to their well of ominousness…[Bird Box] does exactly what good soundtracks are capable of doing, and what they expressly intend for it to do:
Emerge as a rewarding experience in its own right.” – Pitchfork

2019 Projects Include Score For Fox 2000 Film The Woman In The Window And Original Music For HBO’s “Watchmen”
Rolling Stone praised the “haunting, hypnotic, palm-sweating score” composed by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross for the Netflix film Bird Box. Now fans can purchase the score as a high-resolution digital download HERE and listen to it on streaming services HEREBird Box, which was directed by Academy Award®, Golden Globe Award and Emmy Award winner Susanne Bier and stars Academy Award® winner Sandra Bullock, has been viewed by more than 80 million Netflix accounts to date.
 
Bird Box…employs an array of techniques to convey anxiety, impending danger, and the sense that safety and happiness are never guaranteed,” said Pitchfork. “…nearly a decade deep into a sideline in the soundtrack business that’s become a second full-time gigand nearly three decades into Nine Inch Nails as a going concernReznor and Ross are finding new ways to draw their listeners in, then make them uncomfortable once they get there.”
 
In a note posted on NIN.COM, Trent Reznor said, “Like all soundtrack records we release, we aim for these to play like albums that take you on a journey and can exist as companion pieces to the films and as their own separate works. We created a significant amount of music and conceptual sound for Bird Box, a lot of which never made it to your ears in the final version of the film. We’ve decided to present you with this version of the soundtrack that represents what Bird Box is to us. We hope you enjoy. For those interested, we will be releasing a more expansive (read: more self-indulgent) physical-only offering this spring that will contain an additional hour of music and artwork that colors further outside the lines…Enter at your own risk!”
 
See below for the track listing for Bird Box (Abridged). Check out the lead-off track, “Outside,” HERE.
 
Reznor and Ross are scoring the Fox 2000 thriller The Woman in the Window. The film, helmed by Joe Wright, is based on the best-selling novel by A.J. Finn and will star Amy Adams, Gary Oldman and Julianne Moore. The pair has also been tapped to compose original music for “Watchmen,” Damon Lindelof’s episodic series for HBO, which is based on the original Watchmen graphic novel and film.
 
The two began working together as film composers on David Fincher’s The Social Network, earning an Oscar® and a Golden Globe® for the score. They have since worked on scores for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (winning a GRAMMY® for Best Score Soundtrack for Visual Media), Gone GirlPatriots Day, among other projects.
 
Reznor has also won two GRAMMY® awards for his work with Nine Inch Nails, which wrapped up the massively successful COLD AND BLACK AND INFINITE NORTH AMERICA 2018 tour in December. NME praised the band’s 2018 album Bad Witch as “Nine Inch Nails’ best release in a decade.”

The track is available now for streaming and download HERE.

At just 10 tracks, its brevity is both refreshing and consistently piercing, with frontman Ben Gibbard’s storytelling abilities remaining just as steadfast as they were when the group formed 20 years ago in Bellingham, Washington.” THANK YOU FOR TODAY is “the most immersive alt-rock album you’ll hear all year,” wrote the UK’sIndependent. In a four-starred rave “THANK YOU FOR TODAY feels like the natural beginning of the next chapter of Death Cab for Cutie,” enthused Dork, “doing so with one of their most ‘Death Cab’ sounding albums in years… It feels like a pivotal moment – a band with an undeniable legacy opening up and becoming something invigoratingly new.”

Death Cab for Cutie has spent much of the past year on the road celebrating THANK YOU FOR TODAY, their epic schedule highlighted by intimate theatre performances, sold out headline shows, benefit concerts, and top billed sets at festivals across both North and South America. The band also made a series of high profile TV appearances, including performances of “Gold Rush” on CBS’s The Late Show with Stephen ColbertThe Late Late Show with James Corden, ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!, and the nationally syndicated Ellen DeGeneres Show.

Watch the videos for “WhetherWords I Heard” and “I Shall Love 2” all directed by Dicky Bahto

A sampling of praise for Aviary by Julia Holter out now on Domino:

“On her fifth album, Aviary, the composer and singer Julia Holter creates songs that swirl together centuries of classical and modern approaches: electronics, Minimalism, orchestral arrangements, medieval troubadour songs, piano ballads, chamber-pop, lullabies, collages, diaristic fragments, philosophical musings, open questions, encoded messages and surreal dream logic. It’s a compendium of mysteries”  The New York Times

"The Los Angeles musician’s fifth studio album is the most joyous, daring realization of her experimental tendencies yet: a sprawling, 90-minute search for meaning in a dehumanizing age."  Pitchfork

“Julia Holter’s fifth studio album, Aviary, bursts forth like a flock of terns, their razor-sharp wings and scarlet beaks tangled among their sheer numbers. Like Kate Bush’s The Dreaming, the album throws Holter’s precise experimental-pop formula into a blender, producing a cohesive record of nonrepresentational but disarmingly honest work.”  The A.V. Club

“Throughout Julia Holter’s discography, allusions to centuries-old musical traditions, literature, and mysticism give rise to moments of palpable warmth and emotional authenticity. Her fifth and newest album Aviary, an ambitious 90-minute epic, is no exception—in fact, its rich intertexuality surpasses anything she has previously attempted.”  SPIN

"Holter is one of the most acclaimed and exciting composers of her generation. How she got here wasn’t promised. But on her new album, she’s soaring." The Ringer

“its 15 tracks form an intimidating but coherent whole that serves as Holter’s most sophisticated and engaging release to date. For a composer of Holter’s rapidly increasing stature, that is high praise indeed.”  Tiny Mix Tapes

“The poetry, ancient languages, and literary references may be heady but never are foreboding. No syllabus is required to feel the swooning rush of her melodies or the cathartic cacophony that envelop you. Aviary demands attention, and as a captivating journey that overwhelms the senses, it fully deserves it.”  Consequence Of Sound

HEARD IT IN A PAST LIFE, MAGGIE ROGERS’ CAPITOL RECORDS DEBUT ALBUM, IS OUT TODAY

HEARD IT IN A PAST LIFE, MAGGIE ROGERS’ CAPITOL RECORDS DEBUT ALBUM, IS OUT TODAY

WATCH HER PERFORM ON “THE LATE SHOW WITH STEPHEN COLBERT” TUESDAY, JANUARY 22
 
“LIGHT ON” TOPS BILLBOARD’S ADULT ALTERNATIVE SONGS CHART FOR SECOND WEEK

2019 HEADLINE DATES ARE SOLD OUT

 “Heard It In A Past Life is a collection of self -searching moments: miniature mental flashbulbs of realization from a young adult striving to adjust to the swiftly shifting world around her… **** – Rolling Stone 
Heard It In A Past Life Album Art

January 18th, 2019 — (Hollywood, CA) — Acclaimed producer/songwriter/performer Maggie Rogers’ Capitol Records debut album, Heard It In A Past Life, is now available everywhereAfter launching the album with a sold-out release show at the Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles last night, Rogers heads back to New York City, where she’ll perform on “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert” next Tuesday, January 22.

Her current single, “Light On,” has now claimed the No. 1 spot on Billboard’s Adult Alternative Songs chart for two consecutive weeks. She performed the song on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” earlier this week – watch here. Cumulative global streams of “Light On” and the four other tracks that were unveiled in the lead-up to today’s release of Heard It In A Past Life – “Give A Little,” “Alaska,” “On + Off” and “Fallingwater” – already exceed 230 million. Watch her perform “Light On” with 50 fans and guitarist Elle Puckett in this new single-shot video. Lensed in Paris, the clip was produced by La Blogothèque (Justin Timberlake, Chris Stapleton) and directed by Elie Girad.

Rogers will kick off a global headline tour on February 14th in Dublin, Ireland. Tickets for most dates on the North American leg sold out at on sale including a March 29 show at New York City’s Hammerstein Ballroom, which sold out in minutes. She will also perform at Coachella in April. Visit https://www.maggierogers.com/live/ for itinerary.

In this feature, The New York Times said, “‘Heard It in a Past Life’ is a collection of buoyant electronic pop songs, but the lyrics are unmistakably the work of an introvert struggling to recalibrate.” Rolling Stone awarded the album four stars and hailed it as “a laser focused statement with nary a wasted lyric or synth line.” Declaring it “astonishingly good,” the Associated Pressobserved, “Over 12 tracks, Rogers explores the curiously fertile melding of folk and dance, with her distinctive and warm voice floating amid harmonies or a relentless industrial beat. So much pressure has been placed on this young Maryland artist but she’s delivered on that early promise - an exciting album, true to her vision.” Consequence of Sound noted, “If anything this record is a formal announcement: new queen of indie pop, Maggie Rogers is here to stay.” She was recently named as the first YouTube Artist On The Rise (AOTR) of 2019 and a Twitter Music #ArtistToFollow. Listen to Rogers’ NPR Morning Editioninterview here.

Maggie Rogers grew up in Easton, Maryland. After graduating from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, she released her critically acclaimed debut EP, Now That The Light Is Fading. The BBC, Tidal, Google Play, Vevo, Pandora and numerous publications – including Rolling StoneNYLON, SPINBillboard and more – have tipped her as an artist to watch. NPR named her one of its Favorite Musicians and The New Yorker declares, “Maggie Rogers is an artist of her time.” Rogers’ television performances include “Saturday Night Live,” “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” “Late Night with Seth Meyers” and “The Late Late Show with James Corden.”
