SOUNDTRACK - Atomic Blonde: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack (Vinyl) (2LP)

Where do we start?

A cool film needs a cool soundtrack, right? And none come cooler than ATOMIC BLONDE. A double LP filled to the brim with needledrops of some of the '80s best known cuts, as well as some under the radar gems, and a smattering of brand new tracks recorded especially for the movie.

David Bowie, George Michael, The Clash, Nena, Siouxsie and the Banshees, and A Flock Of Seagulls of course need no introduction, and they all contribute absolutely killer songs here. Rubbing shoulders with these A-listers are lesser known acts such as Re-Flex, whose track 'The Politics of Dancing' was a minor hit in the UK and is a pure '80s synth-pop banger from start to finish. After The Fire went from playing uninspired prog rock to recording the should-have-been classic 'Der Kommissar,' full of funky guitar licks and a chorus so hook-laden it should be illegal. 'Voices Carry' by American new wave band 'Til Tuesday features Aimee Mann on vocals and is an all-timer everyone needs on vinyl.

The record is rounded out by a series of covers of classic '80s tracks. Industrial noise pop band HEALTH offering a fresh take on New Order's 'Blue Monday' which turns the cold original into a sublime slice of melodic mayhem that breaks down into into electro shoegaze before going full dance floor to finish. LEX recording artists Kaleida supply a moody ethereal version of Nena's '99 Luftballons'. And finally composer Tyler Bates teams up with Marilyn Manson for a cover of Ministry's 'Stigmata,' which sounds like Manson going back to his Spooky Kids roots, and is urgent as all hell.

Four sides of killer music wrapped in a beautiful package for one of the best action films this year. It's a no brainer, really. Buy this, or be prepared to meet Charlize in stairwell and explain why you aren't adding it to you collection....

Featuring original hand painted artwork by classic pulp novel artist Ron Lesser, and pressed on 180 Gram vinyl.
