‘Justice League’: Danny Elfman To Compose Score

Danny Elfman

Now that Joss Whedon has taken on the responsibility of completing production on Justice League in time for its release this fall following Zack Snyder‘s departure from the movie due to a death in his family, he has brought on the always amazing Danny Elfman to compose the score for the much-anticipated DC Films blockbuster.

The hiring of Elfman comes just as Whedon is about to commence with the filming of additional scenes in London. Obviously this isn’t Elfman’s first time creating original music for a big-budget superhero movie; his score for Tim Burton’s first Batman in 1989 captured the film’s madness, melancholy, adventure, and Gothic atmosphere perfectly and continues to influence composers to this day. He also created the themes for the first TV series of The Flash, which aired for one season from 1990-1991, and Batman: The Animated Series.

If you’re a fan of New York Hardcore, then you have probably heard the music of The Last Stand before now, perhaps without even realizing. Each of the members has been around the hardcore scene making headbanging music for well over 20 years. Lead singer Michael Scondotto was vocalist for Inhuman, and bassist Dion De Nardo, guitarist Stephen Della Croce and drummer Jimmy McCormack were all members of Shutdown. The Last Stand got together in 2010 and released their self titled record in 2011. This past Friday, June 9th, they released their latest record, This Is Real on Irish Voodoo Records on vinyl and CD.

Here’s The Tracklist For Edgar Wright’s ‘Baby Driver’ Soundtrack

Baby Driver starring Ansel Elgort

Golden Earring‘s “Radar Love”; The Button Down Brass‘ “Tequila”; Martha and the Vandellas‘ “Nowhere To Run”; and Incredible Bongo Band‘s “Bongolia”: these are just a few of the songs that can be heard in the trailers for Edgar Wright‘s Baby Driver. Since the film made its festival debut earlier this year at SXSW, critics have been feeding the hype machine, going as far as saying it is one of the best movies of the year.

Judging by the looks of the trailers and featurettes, it’s easy to see why. The action in Baby Driver practically syncs up to the music. And I say practically because I haven’t seen it yet. But if you are a fan of amazing soundtracks, then the newly released tracklist for the film’s soundtrack should have your attention. Check out which songs made the cut, below.

It Was 50 Years Ago Today: The Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band

The Beatles Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band

Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, the seminal and legendary album by The Beatles, which not only seemed to crystallize the band, but also the entire sensibilities of the youth of the globe during the mid to late 1960s, celebrates its 50th anniversary today.

Released in America on June 2nd, 1967, and a week or so earlier in the band’s native UK, Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band has become such a recognizable force in pop cultural history, it’s almost like a brand, a headquarters where so many musical and cultural influences spawned. From its rich and vibrantly complex yet totally welcoming cover to the same adjectives applied to the wide range and scope of music, which almost acts as a primer for every single style of music up to that point in musical history (pop, cabaret, vaudeville, psychedelia, straightforward rock) and even acting as a blueprint to just the around the corner genres that followed (like progressive and even acid rock), Sgt. Pepper is a true artifact of a time long gone and yet still acts as a straight arrow pulse right in contemporary society, whether it’s for novelty’s sake or reality’s sake.

Lip Sync Battle Stranger Things

Lip Sync Battle has become a television staple on Spike TV drawing celebrities into outrageous battles where they mouth the lyrics to hit songs while living out real life music videos. Based off the hilarious sketch on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, LSB has hosted top celebrities from Dwayne The Rock Johnson, to Channing Tatum, to Oscar winner Anne Hathaway doing a legendary turn on the wrecking ball for a Miley Cyrus cover. On May 25th, hosts LL Cool J and Chrissy Teigen welcomed the cast of one of 2016’s biggest breakout hits, Netflix’s Stranger Things. Instead of a one on one showdown where each performer “sings” twice, this time it was a fatal 4-way featuring Finn Wolfhard (Mike Wheeler), Noah Schnapp (Will Byers), Gaten Matarazzo (Dustin Henderson) and Caleb McLaughlin (Lucas Sinclair) each performing one lip sync hit. For fans of Stranger Things and Lip Sync Battle, this was as entertaining an episode of TV you can get.

Check out some of the performances below.

Spider-Man: Homecoming

Michael Giacchino is, without a doubt in my mind, one of the best composers for film and television working today. Last year alone saw him apply his inventive musical chops to the popular blockbuster hits Doctor Strange and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

Well the man is back in the Marvel Cinematic Universe this summer as he is providing the score for the much-anticipated Spider-Man: Homecoming. As a little treat to close out this unadulterated whirlwind of a week on the planet Earth, Giacchino has released a brief snippet from his Homecoming soundtrack, which he recently completed. Longtime fans of Marvel Comics’ friendly neighborhood superhero will very likely recognize this upbeat number.

Chris Cornell of Soundgarden

Chris Cornell, who is best known as the frontman of Seattle grunge legends Soundgarden, died Wednesday night while on tour in Detroit, according to the AP. He was 52.

No cause of death is known at this time, but Cornell’s representative told the AP that the musician’s death was “sudden and unexpected.” AP News is reporting that police are investigating his death as a possible suicide, stating there were “basic things observed at the scene” to warrant this. Cornell had performed with Soundgarden in Detroit, MI, that night, and was later found dead on the bathroom floor at the MGM Grand Detroit hotel.
