180 Gram Vinyl Record
Featuring songs by Johnny Cash, The Jim Carroll Band, The Decemberists, Pixies and more!
Mondo, in conjunction with Troll Court / WaterTower Music, is proud to present the premiere vinyl pressing of the latest mix-tape masterpiece curated by writer/director James Gunn ... the soundtrack for his superhero action-adventure film The Suicide Squad.
"A movie to me is two things," Gunn says, "Picture and sound. It's how you put those two things together that help tell a story and hopefully move an audience. So, music is incredibly important!"
The Suicide Squad (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack), which Gunn calls his ‘curated mix tape' matches the energy of a story about a collection of the most degenerate delinquents in the DC lineup, featuring everything from 1950's swing (Louis Prima's ‘Just A Gigolo / I Ain't Got Nobody (And Nobody Cares For Me) — Medley') to '80's punk rock (Jim Carroll Band's ‘People Who Died') to modern Samba Pop and Brazillian Hip-Hop (Ceú's ‘Samba Na Sola' and Drik Barbosa's ‘Quem Tem Joga' respectively), alongside classics by Kansas, Pixies and Johnny Cash, alongside a handful of today's rising stars like grandson and Jessie Reyez; in addition to their own songs, the latter two even perform the duet "Rain" which was written specifically for the film. Combined, you have the next best thing to a curated playlist from the master of mix-tapes.
