I’ve been streaming Hell and High Water a lot lately. It’s from Nick Cave and Warren Ellis.

Hard to say, but my favorite within the last couple years is the Ex Machina soundtrack: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BgKhOv1xTmA

Don’t care if people turn their noses up at this, but they’re masters of production across so many genres, classical included. It’s my favorite soundtrack among many others.

Not so long ago I bought “Flimscores two” from Orla Wren… it’s kinda a soundtrack, worth checking out.

Tv OK?

The soundtrack to Luke Cage is amazing.

Some great music here!

One of my favourite synth soundtracks is from Andromeda Strain (1971) - music by Gil Melle

Also there is an absolutely fantastic BBC documentary series about film music, presented by composer Niel Brand. The 3rd (and last) episode is about synths in film music, going all the way back to the use of trautonium on The Birds soundtrack. The other 2 episodes are great too.
