Curtis Mayfield - Short Eyes OST (1977)
'"Short eyes", his 1977 soundtrack to the flick of the same name, was released at a time when fellow heavyweights such as James Brown and Isaac Hayes had fallen victim to over-polished disco kitschness and, thus, surely must stand as one of the last great 70s soul/funk albums as it's drenched in everything that makes those first 4 Mayfield albums so damn good : that sweet falsetto almost as a ringmaster to the rest of the proceedings; commanding the dirty funked up wah-wah guitar, lush arrangements, heartstopping strings, wailing double-tracked backing vocals and trippy backwards fx to do backflips and weave their way in and out of macked-out horns and throbbing bass grooves (no homo!) while crisp snares and reverberating bongos underline the whole experience.

ÓLAFUR ARNALDS - Dyad 1909
This latest release from Icelandic modern classical luminary Ólafur Arnalds is a score penned for the award-winning British choreographer Wayne McGregor. This thirty-minute soundtrack follows on from the acclaimed Found Songs project (through which Arnalds produced and distributed one new song per day for a week over Twitter) and continues to chart the young composer's rise to the very top of his field. Consuming soundtrack releases as standalone entities can be a hit-and-miss affair; sometimes these projects simply don't have the same impact as an independently realised work, yet Dyad 1909 suffers no such problems. Right down to the track sequencing this makes for a sublime continuous listening experience. While piano and strings are at the heart of the music, Arnalds is always keen to employ technology, resulting in some Johann Johannsson-style computer vocals on 'Við vorum smá', brilliant field recording-based dark ambience on 'Frá upphafi' and '...og lengra' and outbursts of fearsome, volcanic sounds not unlike those heard across Bjork's magnum opus, Homogenic. Another outstanding release from Arnalds that's downright essential for all followers of melodic and melancholic modern classical music.

This is a solo release from 1/2 of Pansonic. As Boomkat says:
"Strange, deeply cinematic ambience pieces with the odd track supported by deep bass and padded 808 thuds."
