kyle dixon & michael stein Stranger Things Season 1 (a Netflix Original Series Soundtrack) (180g coloured vinyl 4 LP boxed set, £72.95)label: Invada
The long awaited special edition box set to Kyle Dixon & Michael Stein’s Grammy nominated, spellbinding synth score to 1980s-set smash hit ‘Stranger Things: Season 1’. With its pillowy synth-pads and rich textures, the soundtrack seamlessly wanders through the 80s world of ‘Stranger Things’, breeding an unthreatening serenity with a gentle shift toward a darker mood. The score then plunges into a nightmare before the audience even have time to blink; a change pulled off with uncanny grace. This soundtrack is instantly reminiscent of works by John Carpenter (‘Halloween’, ‘The Thing’), Tangerine Dream and Vangelis (‘Blade Runner’), whilst also delving into the ambience of Aphex Twin and more modern composers such as Cliff Martinez (‘Drive’, ‘Solaris’). The box features brand new ‘Boys On Bikes’ front cover artwork, printed inserts with liner notes written by the show's creators (The Duffer Brothers) and by soundtrack composers Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein, two 11” × 22” fold out posters (‘Retro Montage’ Vol. 1 and ‘Boys On Bikes’ Vol. 2), ten 4” × 6” character cards (five ‘Kids’ Vol. 1 and five ‘Adults’ Vol. 2), four hand pressed ‘Flashlight’ coloured LPs in 425g extra-thick heavyweight gatefold sleeves housed in a deluxe heavyweight box with foil embossed ‘Stranger Things’ logo.
