Label: Sacred Bones Records

The effortlessly cool John Carpenter, god of horror film scores and minimal synth punk, has a new collection of crowd favorite movie themes ranging from the timeless Halloween score to the highly underrated Starman, my personal favorite.  If you’re tired of flipping through your massive Carpenter vinyl collection, then this consolidated anthology will literally add seconds to your life.

For the Carpenter fanatics, there’s a Halloween orange vinyl variant, limited to 500, that includes an additional 7″ and 13 7″ x 7″ prints by Chris Bilheimer featuring new art of the 13 themes on the album.  That’s gonna run you a whopping $55, but I guarantee they won’t last through the week, maybe even the day.  If you don’t need the additional 7″ or the prints, there’s another ‘anti-God green’ vinyl variant, limited to 500, that you can grab for $30.  If you plan on seeing Carpenter on his upcoming tour, he’ll have another variant at his merch table, also limited to 500.
