Mondo releases new vinyl special editions every single Wednesday. They are the ultimate edition of whatever they put out, featuring extensive liner notes, brand-new commissioned artwork, and always have a limited-edition size. The vinyl itself is usually colored or a photo disc, as well. Basically, it's like the Criterion Collection of movie and gaming soundtracks. This week sees the release of the soundtrack to the 2019 film Lucy in the Sky. It is a very sad film, with a great soundtrack, debuting on vinyl for the first time here.
Mondo Lucy in the Sky Vinyl Release
"Mondo Music, in partnership with Lakeshore Music, is proud to present the premiere vinyl pressing of Jeff Russo's score to the 2019 film LUCY IN THE SKY. LUCY is a sad but beautiful fable about failure, double standards, and achievement. But the music for the film is never bleak because the film itself is always hopeful and curious. Anchored by swelling synths and echoing choruses the score is tranquil and sublime. An underrated and underheard collection of film music we are super proud to share.
Featuring a brand new, beautiful illustration by Jasmin Darnell, and pressed on 2x 180 gram Star Field vinyl – which was produced with all new process that allows you to press glitter vinyl without any risk of damage to your needle – and is strictly limited to 300 copies worldwide. Also available on 2x 180 gram Black vinyl."
Buy It, For Charity
Mondo will be donating portions of all money made from this week's release to the Austin Parks Foundation. It is Earth Day, after all, and this is something they do every year. It is pretty cool of them to do that. Outdoor spaces are more important than ever, and their upkeep is expensive. So, if you were planning on buying this? Now you know that some of your money is going to a great cause. As with all Mondo music releases, this one will go on sale Wednesday at Noon CST on the Mondo webstore.
