Music is in the air in the Netflix corner of the MCU. As noted in this MCU Exchange article, a month ago Mondo announced their release of the soundtrack for Luke Cage pressed on 180 gram yellow vinyl. To aid in insuring that you have all your music lined up for when The Defenders finally drops, the company is now releasing similar packaging of the Daredevil: Season One and Jessica Jones: Season One soundtracks press in red and purple (respectively) high-quality vinyl.
These albums mark the first time either of these soundtracks have been made available in any physical format.
Daredevil: Season One – Original Soundtrack LP features music by John Paesano and artwork by Matthew Woodson. The score for season one of Daredevil set the bar for quality very high for the series and all MCU shows that have followed. As the release from Mondo states: “Right from the opening credits Paesano creates a powerful sense of urgency and an undercurrent of darkness, crafting some of the most kinetic musical sequences in the Marvel Universe…” This special red vinyl pressing of the soundtrack is limited to just 3000 copies and will sell for $25.
Jessica Jones: Season One – Original Soundtrack is a double record set with music by Sean Callery and artwork by Matthew Woodson. The title theme for the show included here won the 2016 Emmy® for Outstanding Original Main Title Theme Music and carries on the sharp quality level as its predecessor. This special purple vinyl pressing of the soundtrack is also limited to just 3000 copies and has a retail price of $35.
The special soundtrack albums will also be available at the House of Wax bar in the Alamo Drafthouse Brooklyn, the first Alamo Drafthouse location to include a record rack in the theater’s bar where these special albums will be available the same day they’re released online.
To mark this occasion, on November 9 the Alamo Drafthouse Brooklyn and Mondo will host a special sale event featuring a live DJ set by Adrian Younge, one of the composers of the Luke Cage score. Admission is free and the public is welcome.
What do you think of these items? Sound off below in the comments and let us know if it’s the kind of item you would purchase. Music was certainly an important aspect within the world of Luke Cage, but does that hold up in the other Netflix series as well? We’d like to hear your thoughts!
Both albums will be available for ordering on November 9 at noon CST.
