Howard Shore and Metric, Metropolis

Composer Howard Shore has consistently produced movie soundtracks that have inherent musical interest well beyond their eminently effective function in the films they were made for.

His latest finds him uniting with the alt-rock-electronic band Metric for Cronenberg's Delillo-inspired Cosmopolis (Howe 1008).

This one has beat and ambiance, youthful vocals and soundscaped terrains both icy and shimmering. It's a good listen on its own, for sure.
