    Waves is now available on Spotify and Apple Music.

    I REALLY hope this OST will eventually get a physical release. To me this is by far the most obscure and unsettling soundtrack they've put out so far. I love the fact that it is so different from their previous works and every track is almost timeless, ephemeral and meticulously stretched. I've been listening to it since it came out and a few days ago I had to take a break because it's some really dark and emotionally dense stuff, to the point that it was starting to make me uncomfortable.

    Can't wait to see the film.

    The wide/streaming release took me by surprise! I still haven't listened because I wanna see the film first (which I *finally* am – tonight!!!!), so now my "dilemma" is should I still buy direct from nin.com? Asking because you guys said they embedded each track with individual artwork, right? If so, that rules.

    Yep, and the FLAC version is also higher quality. Good stuff.

    Saw the film last night. Really intense emotional experience that you should see in a theater if you can.

    As mentioned previously, it's a very music heavy movie, but the score definitely takes a backseat to the use of pre-existing music. I definitely wouldn't expect an 80 minute long score if I had seen the movie first.

    Just got out of the theater. Itís a pretty powerful film. I agree that the score is used sparingly, but that being said itís effective when it hits. The pre-existing music is used very well. Great movie.

    This really does deserve a physical release. It's fucking amazing.

    I do kind of wonder if it'll get one - it feels like a little bit more care was put into this release, what with the individual track art (haven't seen that in a long time) and the wider digital release so quickly after the initial release. The description for it is a lot more glowing than, say, mid90s, which got the same digital-only treatment, too, which makes me think that they liked it a lot and might have bigger plans for it.

    Also the fact that this and mid90s are the only Null releases that don't have either a physical release or a hint at one (Patriots Day).

    Wow. This movie floored me. Please see it.

    Such a beautiful expression of how we're all touched by tragedy, loss, recovery, joy, repeat.

    Just got back from this movie. It was incredible, and everyone should go see it in theaters if they can.

    Agreed. The theater sound mix pummels you in the best way – in a way that home-viewing probably won't recreate in most cases.

    I'm still so impressed by the way the Pop Songs were sewn into the Sound Design were sewn into the Score, etc.

    I can't help but think Waves is the full realization of what Harmony Korine was trying to do with Spring Breakers (and I say that as a huge fan of that film): seamless integration of all the above elements to create something that obviously transcends music video and simply pushes the motion picture medium forward. It's just bursting with feeling.

    There's a scene in the movie where one of the score drones slowly crackles into a different song (I think a Frank Ocean song, but I can't remember), but it only crackles to life in the right speaker. Then the next scene comes into focus, and the camera is pointing out the side window of a moving car. As it slowly rotates to look in the direction the car is moving in, the song pans around the theater until it's centered. It's wild, and definitely suited for theaters.

    Everything burns has a runtime of 1:06. When I changed the artist name tag in iTunes the sing bloats to 2:00+ minutes and, halfway through, it ends (at the 1:06 mark).

    huh. ios13 has been doing that with a ton of audio files lately so I figured it was just another bug in the system.

    side note: it's really pissing me off because I listen to podcasts and when I skip 15/30 seconds the system has no idea what to do because ios reports one time while the app reports another and it just goes black until the two times coincide again.

    VBR track time has been screwy from day 1, even on programs like foobar and jRiver. What is the bitrate of the nin.com files? I would assume they’re 320 CBR.
