Chris Carter – Electronic Ambient Remixes Vol.1 & Vol.3 (2021)

One of the great pleasures of recent times has been the rediscovery of the post-Throbbing Gristle catalogue of Chris Carter and Cosey Fanni Tutti, both in reissues of their older work and in their continuing creativity as Carter Tutti and Carter Tutti Void.

Weekend Streaming: “The Neon Bible,” a Coming-of-Age Tale Set Amid Music and Horror

The British director Terence Davies, whose films connect style to emotion both exquisitely and inventively, is also one of the great cinematic autobiographers. His third feature, “The Neon Bible,” from 1995 (now streaming free on Tubi and Pluto), is a deflected autobiography—it’s an adaptation of a novel written by the teen-age John Kennedy Toole, and it tells the story of the birth of a lonely, troubled boy’s aesthetic sensibility. It’s the first of Davies’s mighty run of expressly literary features. These include “The House of Mirth,” simply one of the best American literary adaptations ever filmed (and it’s not available to stream—hold on to your DVDs), “A Quiet Passion,” and his new film, “Benediction,” a bio-pic of the poet Siegfried Sassoon, which premièred this week, at the Toronto Film Festival, and is scheduled for a U.S. release next year. “The Neon Bible” is also—like all of Davies’s features—a musical, of a personal and original sort. Davies has said that the art that movies most resemble is music. (I agree.) He has spoken of (and, for that matter, autobiographically filmed) the awakening of his own sensibility through the singing—women’s domestic, casual singing—that filled daily life during his childhood, in Liverpool, as well as through the Hollywood musicals that have been his inspirations ever since then. “The Neon Bible” tells the story of a professional singer who bursts into the narrow life of a boy in a small town in the South. The singer is portrayed by one of the greatest of all actors, Gena Rowlands, who takes over the film with passion and style, just as her character does the boy’s life.

The too-scary-for-Hollywood tale of Coil’s Hellraiser soundtrack

A horror movie is only as good as its soundtrack. From the truly terrifying use of dissonant pieces by Lygeti and Penderecki in The Shining to The Haxan Cloak’s eerie themes for the horrific summer-festival grotesqueries in Midsommar, a horror film just isn’t complete without the sonic element to make the terror really come alive. Even Philip Glass’ score for the first iteration of Candyman—a film that the composer admitted to not even really liking all that much—gives it a thoroughly eerie atmosphere. There are exceptions—like the generally playful musical accompaniment to the original Wicker Man, which is a horror film only insomuch as the final scene is one that makes its impact in shock and surprise. But the scarier the soundtrack, the scarier the film.
