This Week in Soundtracks – May 29 includes ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’

Three new releases this week, though the material is not very new and unique.

Snow White and the Huntsman (Osc) by James Newton Howard

James Newton Howard returns with his second film score of 2012 (The Hunger Games was the first). Jnh’s signature style is definitely felt here, almost to the point where some tracks could be mistaken for other films. That being said, the sound does fit well with Snow White and the Huntsman. This is the darker, more action-packed of the two Snow White films released in 2012. Where Mirror, Mirror’s score is whimsical and fluffy, this one is more serious and plays to darker themes. Much of the score is calmly dramatic, but there are good action cues like “Escape from the Tower” and “Warriors on the Beach” that increases the pace. There are 19 tracks in total, all but two composed by Jnh. The others are songs

'Dark Shadows' soundtrack to feature '70s hits from Iggy Pop, Alice Cooper, T. Rex and more
Whereas the original "Dark Shadows" aired in the 1960s, Tim Burton's upcoming big screen "revamp" (hee hee) is set in the '70s -- and has the soundtrack to prove it. Skewing toward the hipper side of the Me Decade, "Dark Shadows" includes tunes from Iggy Pop, T-Rex, Alice Cooper, Donovan and Barry White. It also features Top 40 staples such as The Moody Blues, The Carpenters and The Steve Miller Band (sort of). In the case of the latter's "The Joker," we'll get to hear star Johnny Depp recite the infectious tune in character as Barnabas Collins, the Victorian Age vampire trapped...

'Dark Shadows' Soundtrack Features Iggy Pop, Alice Cooper, The Carpenters, T-Rex & More

Composer Danny Elfman has written the score to Tim Burton's "Dark Shadows," starring Johnny Depp, natch. It probably sounds a little like the music featured here (though you can actually hear it here). However, what's likely a bit more interesting than the original score, is the soundtrack to Burton's comedic '70s-set vampire tale based off a 1960s ABC soap opera about a family tormented by strange supernatural occurrences.

Due May 8th via WaterTower Music, the 11-track various artists soundtrack features Iggy Pop, The Moody Blues, The Carpenters, T-Rex, Alice Cooper and even Johnny Depp doing a spoken-word version of the Steve Miller Band's "The Joker." You can hear samples of the soundtrack over at the Water Town Music site and or just listen to the clips below. You're likely well-versed in most of these '70s songs, but might we recommend sitting through the lovely fromage that

See What Danny Elfman has in Store for Us with the Soundtrack for ‘Dark Shadows’

How has Danny Elfman never won a damn Oscar?! Not only that . . . he’s only been nominated four times. Let that thought linger in your brain for a little bit while you hum in your head the theme to Batman (1989), The Nightmare Before Christmas, Mission: Impossible, and Men in Black. Those are just a few memorable scores he has given us over the years. A frequent collaborator with Tim Burton, Dark Shadows marks the 13th time the composer has teamed up with the popular director. Who’s to say that his new score for the film won’t mark another memorable partnership between the two. To get a taste of how he approached the score to the adaptation of the cult TV show, read what he has to say below courtesy of Dark Shadows News.

“Tim [Burton] had some specific ideas about the music,” he explains in a press release for the forthcoming soundtrack album.
