John Carpenter's Lost Themes III: Alive After Death
Save $ -27.00
Much has changed in the musical life of renowned composer and director John Carpenter since 2016’s Lost Themes II. Following the release of that album, he went on his first-ever concert tour, performing material from the Lost Themes albums, as well as music from his classic film scores. He re-recorded many of those classic movie themes for 2017’s Anthology album, working alongside son Cody Carpenter and godson Daniel Davies. The following year, he was asked to executive produce and compose the music for the new Halloween movie directed by David Gordon Green, which promptly became the highest-grossing installment in the series. Now, he returns with his first album of non-soundtrack music in nearly five years, Lost Themes III: Alive After Death.
Underpinning Carpenter’s renaissance as a musician has been his collaboration with Cody Carpenter and Daniel Davies. They’ve composed and performed as a trio throughout this entire run, on studio albums, on soundtracks, and onstage. Here, the trio reaches a new level of creative mind meld. Richly rendered worlds are built in the interplay between Davies’s guitar and the dueling synthesizers played by the Carpenters.
“We begin with a theme, a bass line, a pad, something that sounds good and will lead us to the next layer,” John says of the trio’s process. “We then just keep adding on from there. We understand each other's strengths and weaknesses, how to communicate without words, and the process is easier now than it was in the beginning. We’ve matured.”
John called the first Lost Themes album “a soundtrack for the movies in your mind.” On Alive After Death, those movies are even more vivid. The song titles here are among his most evocative, too. Lead single “Weeping Ghost” thrillingly conjures its title figure in a wash of synthesizer, making the listener’s neck hairs stand on end as the aural specter stalks the halls of a dilapidated mansion. The pulsing “The Dead Walk” makes the zombie apocalypse feel like a rave. The gloomy, atmospheric closing track “Carpathian Darkness” casts shadow on the album with its strikingly effective minimal piano and splashes of twinkling synth. Each of the ten songs is a universe unto itself.
Whereas the original Lost Themes album came as a pleasant surprise after years of relative silence from Carpenter, the third installment sees him in the midst of a resurgent moment as a cultural force. The 2018 Halloween score gave his music its biggest audience in decades, and the world he releases his new album into is one that has, at long last, given him the credit he deserves as a founding father of modern electronic music.

Waxwork Records is excited to announce the release of GOOSEBUMPSOriginal Motion Picture Music by Danny Elfman. The 180 Gram Double LP has received the seal of approval by author R.L. Stine and features artwork by GOOSEBUMPS artist, Tim Jacobus! Jacobus’ artwork is synonymous with the GOOSEBUMPS legacy, as he has illustrated all 62 original books.
In Goosebumps, teenager Zach Cooper (Dylan Minnette), upset about moving from a big city to a small town, finds a silver lining when he meets the beautiful girl, Hannah (Odeya Rush), living right next door, and makes a quick friend in Champ (Ryan Lee). But every silver lining has a cloud, and Zach's comes when he learns that Hannah's mysterious dad is in fact R.L. Stine (Jack Black). As Zach starts learning about the strange family next door, he soon discovers that Stine holds a dangerous secret: the creatures that his stories made famous are real, and Stine protects his readers by keeping them locked up in their books. When Stine's creations are unintentionally released from their manuscripts, Zach's life takes a turn for the weird. In a crazy night of adventure, it's up to Zach, Hannah, Champ, and Stine to get all of these figments of Stine's imagination back in the books where they belong to save the town.
Over the last 30 years, four-time Oscar® nominee Danny Elfman has established himself as one of the most versatile and accomplished film composers in the industry. Beginning with his first score on Tim Burton'sPee-wee's Big Adventure, Elfman has scored a broad range of over 100 films.
The Waxwork Records crew grew up reading R.L. Stine's GOOSEBUMPS books feverishly, and we, like so many millions of GOOSEBUMPS fans across the world, became obsessed with the horrific, yet bright, colorful, and welcoming artwork by Tim Jacobus that graced each book cover. Having Tim Jacobus come on board and agree to create all new and original GOOSEBUMPS art for our vinyl soundtrack is a dream come true.
Tim has kept every transparency of his GOOSEBUMPS artwork in an archive over the years and keeping true to the spirit of those creepy books, every pantone color used to create our new vinyl LP artwork and layout are the same colors that Jacobus used to illustrate the original book covers! With the approval of SCHOLASTIC and R.L. Stine himself, Waxwork was allowed to faithfully design the GOOSEBUMPS vinyl soundtrack to meet every detail of the original books from the 1990's.
This title features a GOOSEBUMPS logo embossed gatefold jacket, 2xLP 180 gram colored vinyl, "TheHaunted Mask"(NeonGreen & Fire Orange) variant or "One Day at HorrorLand"(Teal Smoke and Pink Splatter) variant, artwork by Goosebumps artist Tim Jacobus, and artist liner notes.

Waxwork Records, in partnership with Back Lot Music and Focus Features, is proud to present Edgar Wright’s The Sparks Brothers Original Motion Picture Soundtrack. Pressed to 180 gram vinyl on “Black and White Marble” colored vinyl, this deluxe 4xLP includes 42 tracks that take us on a journey through five decades of music with Sparks brothers, Ron and Russell Mael.
The Sparks Brothers is a 2021 documentary directed by Edgar Wright, and produced by Edgar Wright and Nira Park. Wright often uses music as a fundamental part of his film making, drawing especially from popular music. He was inspired to create a film about the brothers after a life-long obsession with the band. Spending much of their personal lives out of the public eye, this riveting documentary finally sheds light on the Sparks brothers in an intimate way. With commentary by stars like Beck, Thurston Moore, Flea, Duran Duran, and Jack Antonoff, we discover how much of an influence the brothers had over the cinematic and musical world. “If you want to look at Ron and Russell, you have to look at them through one prism. And that prism is cinema.” – Alex Kapranos, Franz Ferdinand
Formed five decades ago, Sparks is a pop rock band comprised of two brothers, Ron and Russell Mael. The ever-evolving band has always stayed at the forefront of modern pop by changing their music styles and visual presentation. With 25 creative and bold albums under their belt, the pop duo has influenced and set the tone for many bands to follow. “Because Sparks went off and did completely different things, they planted the seed and others picked up on it and carried it on, as Sparks went off in another direction. They truly opened musical paths,” says producer George Hencken (Soul Boys of the Western World).
Waxwork is thrilled to present the vinyl release of The Sparks Brothers as a 4xLP deluxe album package featuring 180 gram “Pink” or “Black and White Marble” colored vinyl, exclusive liner notes by Edgar Wright, and The Sparks Brothers themselves, Ron and Russell Mael, an eight page booklet, and an 11”x17” poster, all housed in a deluxe heavyweight four pocket book-style gatefold jacket with matte satin finish with design and layout by Matt Needle. The soundtrack features classic hits by Sparks, including live recordings and a lyric reading by Neil Gaiman.

Waxwork Records, in partnership with Milan Records and Netflix, is proud to present ARMY OF THE DEAD Original Motion Picture Score! Directed by Zack Snyder (Dawn of the Dead (2004), Justice League) and with a fully electronic score by Tom Holkenborg aka Junkie XL (Godzilla Vs. Kong, Mad Max: Fury Road), ARMY OF THE DEAD is a 2021 American zombie heist film starring Dave Bautista, Ella Purnell, Tig Notaro, Omari Hardwick, and Hiroyuki Sanada. The story follows a group of mercenaries who plan a Las Vegas casino heist amid a zombie apocalypse. In this new zombie-film follow up to Snyder’s 2004 Dawn of the Dead, the zombies are smarter, faster, and organized.
Tom Holkenborg is a Dutch composer, multi-instrumentalist, DJ, producer, and audio engineer. He has worked with Hans Zimmer and his company Remote Control Productions on Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, as well as composing the scores for Zack Snyder's Justice League, Mad Max: Fury Road, Deadpool, Tomb Raider, Terminator: Dark Fate, Sonic the Hedgehog, and Godzilla vs. Kong.
Waxwork Records is thrilled to present the score music to ARMY OF THE DEAD as a deluxe double LP album featuring never before seen interactive packaging with new artwork and design by Oliver Barrett. Listeners must tear open the screaming visage of Zeus, the film’s zombie leader, to reveal a locked vault door. The packaging then expands into a neon pink and yellow soaked triple gatefold which unlocks the vault to reveal a horde of Las Vegas zombies inside. As the listener continues opening the album packaging, and all zombies are killed, you'll be greeted by Valentine, the film’s beloved (and first ever?) zombie tiger!
The score has been pressed to 180 gram neon pink and yellow vinyl and the album features exclusive liner notes by director Zack Snyder.
