Whimsical Wax Discs Summoned Forth for Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands Soundtrack. Pre-orders open for deluxe double vinyl.
Laced Records (true neutral at best) continues its fantastical journey with fellow party members Gearbox Entertainment (chaotic good, naturally) to give the epiiiiiiiiiic music of Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands the wondrous wax treatment.
Pre-orders are open for the Limited Edition double LP set (exclusive to www.lacedrecords.com) featuring ‘dragon blood’ and ‘Tiny Teal-a’ galaxy-effect discs. The Standard Edition features traditional black discs and will be available from some third-party retailers. Forged by Butt Stallion’s finest sonic smithy, these 23 tracks are sprinkled with aural pixie dust and carefully pressed onto heavyweight vinyl. The deluxe double gatefold sleeve with metallic pink foil features artwork by the masterful artists at Gearbox.
In-house Gearbox composer Joshua Carro brought his globe-trotting, experimental creative background to bear on the chaotic realms of the Wonderlands. The score briefly threatens more traditional fantasy fare, coaxing the listener in with big, bright celebrational themes; before twisting and turning, stealing listeners away to unexpected places. Unusual, unsettling rhythms and textures are woven together to create a dense and sophisticated sound world, where one can hear strands of Minimalism, Folk, Rock, Generative, IDM, Drone, World, Romanticism, Aleatoric, Modern, and Noise Music. Strange uses of percussion, piano, synths, strings, and more intrude like grimdark messengers, as Carro charts a new course both for soundtracks in the Borderlands universe and for fantasy video games.
