    Dispatches From Elsewhere (2020)

    I'm surprised I didn't see a thread on this, but Atticus, Leopold, & Claudia did the music for the AMC show, "Dispatches From Elsewhere".
    https://www.imdb.com/title/tt8965666/?ref_=ttfc_fc_tt



    It's actually quite a good show, starring Jason Segal, Sally Field, Andre3000, Eve Lindley and the one & only Richard E. Grant. The season finale is Monday the 27th. Curious if anyone else is watching.

    The score is some of the strongest work I've seen from Atticus tbh. Really enhances the show and is quite moving. Disappointing that I have been unable to find anything from it online.

    Two albums?! This Friday?? Awesome news, thank you for sharing.

    Also, this is a good kick in the pants to finally check out Dispatches From Elsewhere – has always looked like a super cool show, even before I knew of The Family Ross' involvement.

    Whoa! Great track. Dare I say some of The Ross fam's best work.

    Also, according to that article, the first album is out today(!!) which is apparently the more electronic-oriented of the 2 whereas the second album (out tomorrow) is more guitar-based. Cool!

    Things Lakeshore Records have done today: updated their Twitter and Facebook banner with a promo image for these soundtracks, noting that you can stream both via Spotify and Apple Music.

    Things they haven't done: released these soundtracks via Bandcamp (which today is donating all its fees to the artists). I want to buy these albums!

    I messaged them on Instagram asking if they were going to release these soundtracks on Bandcamp because I wanted the artists involved to get 100% of the profits, and they deleted my message..

    Then I re-messaged them the same thing, and also asked them if they had figured out how to release the Patriot’s Day score on vinyl yet, and they deleted that one as well. They’re not a very considerate record label, in my humble opinion..

    It’s whatever. I had a gift card for the iTunes store someone gave me back at Christmas, and just used it to buy this score collection that way. Glad I did, because it’s pretty great..

    This music is so good. I would buy this on vinyl in a heartbeat. "Memory To Media" was the one that killed me every time it came on the show.

    I'm halfway through it and it's utterly beautiful television. They also gave a lead role to an trans actor and so far have not pulled the typical hollywood "look we have a trans character now" shit. It's really wonderful, dude.

    The soundtrack gives the Watchmen soundtrack a good run for its money too.

    This is my 2nd favorite soundtrack after The Social Network. Bravo Atticus

    The Elsewhere Society volume is definitely one of my favorite things he's done, I'm enjoying this more than the recent Ghosts releases.

    I'm so glad they were able to create a double album release for this soundtrack. Listening to the track Elsewhere feels like getting a warm hug. I just want to stay in the embrace of the soundscapes and melodies.

    Not really related to the music, but I finally got to the finale of this show tonight and it was a really beautiful way to end the show. Everything about this show, especially the soundtrack, really knocked it out of the park.

    Ive sent them a few DMs asking about the Patriots Day vinyl over the last couple of years -- at first they would respond with "We don't have any updates but we hope to release it soon"

    They finally sent me a response the last time I asked saying "Ha!" that was it.

    lol sounds like Lakeshore..

    Any time they release something I want, I go out of my way to buy it second-hand so that way they aren't getting the money. Can't respect myself supporting a vanity label that can't get its shit together..
