Free Basin’ Fridays – Listening to movies with CINEWAX!

Friday, February 17th, 2012

We’re all huge movie fans…and obviously huge music fans so it was a no brainer that we’d start our own film imprint, CINEWAX! Launched with the haunting Winter’s Bone soundtrack (featuring Marideth Sisco & Blackberry Winter, John Hawkes, Bo Brown, Van Colbert and more) and score (composed by Dickon Hinchliffe) in 2010, we’ve since released on DVD the Wheedle’s Groove documentary by Jennifer Maas and late last year Dickon Hinchliffe’s soundtrack to the film Project NIM. So for this week’s Free Basin’ Fridays, we’re giving away a copy of each of the above releases. That’s right, you’ll get the Winter’s Bone soundtrack (on CD) and the score (digital download), plus the Wheedle’s Groove DVD and the Project NIM soundtrack (CD)! For your chance to win, leave a comment below (tell us your favorite soundtrack or what soundtrack you think we should release/reissue) with your name and email address. Winner will be announced next Friday 2/24!

    My favorite soundtrack I can here over and over is Superfly ! Shaft is the second . I’m not sure on the reissue I will have to go with STREETFIGHT . The Ralph Bakshi flim .

  2. Rob says:

    Rushmore has one of the greatest soundtracks ever made. A nice blend of original music and older album cuts. A proper vinyl remaster would be swell if you are so inclined.

    shaft in africa — are you man enough?

  4. Henry Bob says:

    These releases look fantastic. I would greatly appreciate it if I were to receive them.

  5. lg says:

    For me, Alain Goraguère – La planète sauvage is way up there with Cul de Sac from Komeda.

  6. john larson says:

    Man o man, its too tough to come up with one favorite soundtrack. Here are few of mine: Superfly, Black Dynamite, any Bond music by John Barry, and Pink Floyd Live At Pompeii.

    Your next release should be a soul/funk project with the great Adrian Younge. Perhaps a soundtrack to a flick that doesn’t exist.

  7. Eric Falardeau says:

    A great soundtrack would be The Opening of Misty Beethoven directed by Radley Metzger, That would go well with Deep Throat and Lahlieh.

  8. Crispy says:

    My favorite soundtrack would be Prince’s music to Batman. Wouldn’t it be cool if you put out the music from the films of John Cassavetes (Woman Under The Influence, Killing of A Chinese Bookie, Shadows)?

  9. Griffin says:

    Lately my favorite soundtrack has been Lalo Schifrin’s “Enter the Dragon”, although I’ve been listening to a lot of Stelvio Cipriani’s soundtracks recently too.

  10. Grant says:

    Goraguer’s La Planete Sauvage – one of my fave soundtracks – was rereleased about 10 years ago, but it could always do with another remaster in conjunction with a proper remastering of the original film (which has been released several times but always in poor prints).
    How about Skolimowski’s Deep End, scored by none other than CAN? The movie itself is obscure but amazing, and I don’t think the entire soundtrack has ever been released. A series of soundtracks from Skolimowski films? How about some more Komeda? Just some thoughts…..

  11. Henry Mancini’s score for “A Touch of Evil” has always been a favorite. Also, Bernard Herrmann’s scores for Hitchcock and for “Taxi Driver.” And the Tindersticks/Stuart Staples work for Claire Denis is always good.

  12. Max says:

    Favorite soundtrack = Omega Man with Charlton Heston. Ron Grainer composed it; he primarily used french horns for the brass sections….buttery smooth!

  13. thomas says:

    Favourite soundtrack Satyajit Rays “Jalsaghar”, reissue I’d like to see, a comp of Akira Ifukube scores.

  14. Jim Bruzzese says:

    My favorite soundtracks are for Local Hero and Hannah and Her Sisters.

  15. John Short says:

    “The Wild Angels” soundtrack. The movie is the beach bongo biker gang type, very typical of 60′s biker flicks.

  16. Apu Alam says:

    Morricone has composed many brilliant and varied soundtracks – a favourite is Metti una sera a cena. Other noteworthy Italian soundtrack composers to listen to are Piero Piccioni – Colpo Rovente and Camille 2000 are great ones – and Piero Umiliani. Have lately been listening to the expanded version of Cleopatra Jones by Joe Simon and J J Johnson and that is also a recommended blaxploitation soundtrack.

  17. Simon Franklin says:

    Maurice Jarres ‘Lawrence of Arabia’ – a good soundtrack should be able to convey the film’s atmosphere without the pictures. This does it and comes from a time when the music was just as important as the film, they won’t hand in hand.

  18. Shannon Mulvaney says:

    A proper stateside reissue of “Suspiria” by Goblin would be bloody great. Or Quincy Jones’ “In Cold Blood” or “The Shining”. Thanks for all you do at LITA.

  19. James says:

    Until a couple years ago, I would have said my favorite was the 80s-era vinyl for Plan 9 From Outer Space, the one with the Drew Friedman artwork. But it’s since been supplanted by the soundtrack to Muqaddar Ka Sinkandar, a Bollywood film for which I’ve only seen clips. The vinyl has some killer jams and is my most-played soundtrack these days. I’m also really partial to Duke Ellington’s music for Anatomy Of A Murder and Angelo Badalamenti’s work for The Straight Story (now there’s a CD that deserves a deluxe vinyl release).

  20. Matt says:

    Purple Rain! C’mon people, no contest. A deluxe reissue of the Nashville soundtrack would be pretty cool, too.

  21. Donovan Friesen says:

    Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence’s soundtrack was pretty amazing. Ryûichi Sakamoto’s score is really otherworldly and hard to describe. Just very full of emotion while sounding like no other score I’ve heard before or since!

  22. Chris says:

    My Dad hooked me on soundtracks as a kid. I love them … the magnificent, the dreamy, the timeless for being so perfectly a part of their time … the spaghetti westerns and Morricone’s operatic Once Upon a Time in the West, the screaming engines of Gran Prix.

    The one soundtrack I’ve always wished existed was Jean-Claude Lauzon’s last film, Leolo. “Bzzzzrrrt, thanks for playing,” I know. But it’s a beautifully haunting film and has a truly eclectic montage of music. =)

  23. Great items from you, man. I’ve bear in mind your stuff prior to and you are simply extremely magnificent.
