This year in Prague’s gloriously tacky and low-brow Shockproof Film Festival, catch an eclectic mix of old and new, and trash and treasure. From John Carpenter and The Blob to brutal manga horror and Lords of Chaos, missing this festival is the most stupid thing you could do this year.
It certainly wasn’t the most exciting year ever in the soundtrack world, but 2018 was at least the year that musicians-turned-composers really got to shine. From Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood and Arcade Fire’s Colin Stetson, to Jóhann Jóhannsson’s… Jóhann Jóhannsson and… Radiohead’s Thom Yorke, here are my personal picks for soundtracks of the year. Keep in mind, this list only includes original film scores released in the year 2018. Scroll down for the Spotify playlist. Enjoy!
