Music Monday: 2020 Wrap Up

From the Mondo blog:

For our final newsletter of 2020, we thought we’d highlight some of this year’s releases which may have flown a bit under your radar. We’ve been fortunate this year to release some huge soundtracks, such as Tron: LegacyA Nightmare Before ChristmasThe Last Of Us Part 2The Mandalorian Season OneDeath StrandingAvengers: Infinity War and Endgame. All of these scores are fantastic and essential, but we want to highlight some records that we feel deserve some love from you and your ears over the holidays.

As always, we can’t thank you enough for your support this year. It means the world to us here at Mondo, and we hope our releases have brought some joy to you throughout 2020. Wherever you are, we wish you a happy holiday, and we’re raising a glass to you and yours.

Kajillionaire / Homecoming: Season 2

by Emile Mosseri

Our composer of the year. The brilliant Emile Mosseri made his debut in 2019 with his unforgettable score to The Last Black Man in San Francisco, followed by an indelible mark on the world of film and television scoring with two 2020 masterpieces — three if you count his forthcoming score to the film Minari. If you have some downtime this holiday season, please check out the film Kajillionaire, and the second season of Homecoming (no, you don’t need to see the first to dive in). They’re both special in their own right, and made by amazingly talented people: Miranda July and Kyle Alvarez, respectively.

Tales From The Loop

by Philip Glass and Paul Leonard-Morgan

Tales From The Loop is heartfelt, breathtaking and stunning. The accompanying soundtrack is all of these things, with added melancholy and heartbreak laced with a small amount of hope. Philip Glass and Paul Leonard-Morgan’s music here is top tier work, worthy of any Top 10 list of 2020. The piano refrain which floats throughout the score is enchanting, underpinning the melodies and delivering real emotional depth. The musicianship on display is phenomenal. The perfect record for these long winter nights; it’s cozy but never twee, it’s familiar without being hackneyed, and most of all, it is magnificent.
