This is totally my favorite thing right now. I've always been a fan of John Carpenter's films and scores. I remember watching The Thing with my dad when I was kid. It scared the hell out of me and I loved it! The horror! The thrills! The music!
Welcome back Mr. Carpenter.
You can listen to the entire album on NPR: First Listen.
Local Love: Thanks to the rad guys at Sound Exchange colored vinyl and poster hookup!
