couple in a hole (original soundtrack)
including previously released & new material by the bristol trio, this is a Soundtrack compiled by Geoff Barrow, Billy Fuller & Matt Williams to the Tom Geens directorial debut & psychological drama: 'Couple In A Hole'.
Geoff Barrow (portishead) has history of brilliantly scoring films ('Ex-Machina', 'Exit Through The Giftshop' etc) & here he reuses 6 previous beak> recordings to make up nearly half of the soundtrack, alongside a series of news exercises in sombre, unsettling drone & ambience. this band are awesome - we just wish there had been more new material on here, coz that's what we're really craving! "the old and new songs mesh well, like branches in the canopy of the forest" - drowned in sound.
Ian recommends: "Geoff Barrow and co unashamedly ripping off Can basslines and Neu’s motorik grooves to maximum effect. If you are going to channel legends, you may as well start with the best"
