New Music Wednesday: Michael Giacchino TRAVELOGUE VOLUME 1, Now on CD and LP

Hello from the children of Planet Earth!

This past Friday, the interstellar new album my Academy Award-winning composer Michael Giacchino touched down; TRAVELOGUE VOLUME 1 is now available on all streaming platforms. If you pre-ordered the vinyl, it will be shipping within the next two weeks.

That’s not all! If Vinyl or digital are not your preferred format, we’ve also made the album available on CD. It’s now on sale and shipping this month.

Buy on Bandcamp here. Listen on Spotify, Apple Music, Tidal, or wherever you prefer here. Or pick up the LP or CD here

The record follows a space traveller seeking solace on a planet that isn’t as broken and lost as her own distant world. Upon discovering earth, the story unfolds throughout 11 captivating tracks. To say more would be to spoil the journey and the listener’s interpretation.

The songs have a beautiful, timeless, hazy feeling that transports the listener to their own imagination. Musically, it’s indebted to the easy listening wonders of such legendary musicians as Martin Denny and Lex Baxter (both of whom pioneered the lounge music of the ’50s and ’60s). While Michael continues the tradition of using driving jazz-infused rhythms, he updates this timeless sound with synths, samples and a full string orchestra bringing it into 2020 and making it his own. His melodies are incredible as always, weaving in and out of tracks with a boundless fluidity, and the record’s so much fun you’ll find yourself listening to it again the minute the needle hits the run-out groove of side 4.

The cover artwork by Henry Abrams complements the music perfectly; its effortless beauty is something to get lost in as you listen. Truly wondrous.

Sit back and let Michael Giacchino and his Nouvelle Modernica Orchestra transport you to a place both familiar and strange as you let the sounds of yesteryear take you into the future.

You can check out the premiere single from the album, titled SIDEREAL DAY 2on Mondo’s Youtube page, and watch the animated teaser video for the whole album here.

The album is available for streaming now at through all digital retailers. If you pre-ordered the vinyl or CD it will begin shipping by mid-November. Keep an eye out for tracking!
