Last night, I was clicking through YouTube, minding my own business when I came across this video for “Branches” by Chrome Canyon on Stones Throw’s channel. It was everything I love about 1970s and 1980s movie scores packed into one song. Turns out that Chrome Canyon’s Morgan Z is into movie soundtracks, enough so that he made a mix of some choice tunes that was made available on SoundCloud yesterday.
This mix features choice tracks from films like Suspiria, A Clockwork Orange and more. It also features my all-time favorite movie theme that does not involve Star Wars. That would be “Chase” by the great Giorgio Moroder from Midnight Express. More here.
Chrome Canyon’s debut album, Elemental Themes, is out on Stones Throw on October 9. I, for one, can’t wait to get myself a copy. In the meantime, check out previews on the label’s website.
