“14 tracks in the shadow of film noir”

From the classic "Harry Lime" theme for 'The Third Man' to the smoky Jazz interludes of Angelo Badalamenti's work for David Lynch, we're absolutely obsessed with Film Noir and the sophisticated yet disturbing soundscapes it brings to mind. For our selection this week we've included long and sumptuous pieces from the likes of Set Fire to Flames, Blacksand and Svarte Greiner, alongside original material from Ray Heindorf for Alfred Hitchcock's "Spellbound" and The Chico Hamilton Quintet soundtracking the classic "Sweet Smell of Success". Biosphere treads into the murky, glamorous world of Twin Peaks style strangeness , while renowned musicologist David Toop strings out dark landscapes from his masterful obscurity "Black Chamber". it's a mysterious, compelling journey through almost 90 minutes of immersive sounds transmitted from the pitch-black underbelly of the psyche, with only a flickering neon light guiding you away from the abyss...

Take part! Leave a comment!

“You forgot...”

Bohren & Der Club Of Gore! I was very much expecting to see them on this list. It is a wonderful colection, one of my favorites so far, but I just want to give a heads up to everyone who likes this collection to check out Bohren. Start with Sunset Mission.

“Worthy of a part 2, no doubt”

Hey guys - nice selection, brilliant theme. Methinks you could make a part 2 for this easily. And in the second you might want to consider adding some Badalamenti, just for perspective. I like the above reviewer's suggestion re: Bohren. Cheers!

“More please”

My favourite 14-tracks yet. Could almost have been defined by my tastes in this musical sphere. Bravo.

Excellent selection. I love the idea of grouping music together by the atmosphere it creates. Thank you so much for introducing me to this music. My suggestion for part 2 (and I hope there is a part 2) is July by Denzel & Huhn.
