John Carpenter - "Night" Official Video
Hello all, if you have been a long time visitor of this blog you should be very aware that I am a big movie soundtrack fan. I'm especially fond of the 70s and 80s stuff and a big artist from that era was John Carpenter. He has some truly classic score's he's done for his films. Probably not a week goes by were I don't listen to some of his audio delights. If you are soundtrack fan of that same era then chances are you heard about John releasing a new album called "Lost Themes" that at first I thought was cues from past films that he never used and ending up on the "cutting room" floor, but it appears this is not the case. It's some new stuff he's been working on, but the vibe has that vintage Carpenter feel no doubt. Of course news of the album isn't necessarily new, but the the release of an official music video to the track "Night" from the album is new. The visuals in this video and the track bring back that great feeling many fans had watching the his films. The score was always every bit as important as what you were seeing. I highly recommend checking it out and pick up the album too if you dig it.
