'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 - $32
"The soundtrack to 'Coraline' is haunting, and beautiful. With the help of the 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 unraveling."
'ParaNorman' - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack
Music by Jon Brion
Artwork by DKNG
2XLP Pressed on 180 Gram Black vinyl with randomly-inserted “Aggie Fights” Highlighter Yellow Vinyl, with Bone Haze - $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."
'ParaNorman' - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack RSD Exlcusive
"The Record Store Day version of 'ParaNorman' features variant Glow-in-the-Dark artwork, as well as mystery colored Glow-in-the-Dark vinyl. This edition is Limited to 500 copies, and each copy comes with a randomly inserted clear splatter disc that glows one of three colors (RED, BLUE or GREEN)."
