The newest episode of The Modern Vinyl Podcast features our conversation with Andy Hull and Robert McDowell, members of Manchester Orchestra. More recently, though, and our focus, is their work as part of the film, Swiss Army Man. The composers talk how they met the film’s directors, how they built the ambitious, almost-all-no-instruments score and much more. Very excited for you all to hear this one.
Vinyl Note: The score is being released on vinyl through iam8bit and can be purchased, here. It sports some pretty incredible packaging.
