The Top Five Uses of Depeche Mode Songs in Movies or TV

Depeche Mode is a band that you really have to be into to get and to enjoy. Formed in Essex back in 1980 they’ve stuck together for this long and have had their share of ups and downs. Like I already said you kind of really have to be into their music to understand and enjoy it, but many people have found it to be a different type of sound that they tend to like a little better than the typical mainstream that seems to be churned out on a regular basis for those that like to go with the

Exclusive Interview – Composer Siddhartha Khosla talks Marvel’s Runaways, the need to maintain an authentic sound, and more

Alex Moreland chats with Siddhartha Khosla about Marvel’s Runaways and more…

So, how did you first get involved with Marvel’s Runaways?

Well, Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage are the creators of the show so we, you know, set up a meeting with them to talk about doing their show and we had a kinda common vision for what the music of the show should sound like. The score, which is what I’m responsible for, we had a nice conversation about the show and I read the script and that was it, I started working on the show. We just had a common vision for what the score of the show should sound like.

There was this desire to do something that was slightly different compared to what we’re used to seeing. Historically for kind of the Marvel projects, we opted to go for something that was

Composers for Marvel’s TV Universe Strike a Different Chord

Composers for Marvel’s TV Universe Strike a Different Chord
Traditionally, when comic-book super-heroes are adapted for the screen, they are accompanied by big orchestras playing heroic themes. Think John Williams’ “Superman” theme or Danny Elfman’s “Spider-Man” music.

For its TV series, however, Marvel has thrown out the old rulebook. Like the Marvel Universe itself, not every hero is alike; some of them don’t even wear colorful costumes. No fewer than 13 series based on Marvel Comics are either on the air now or will be by this time next year, and their scores are as diverse as the characters themselves.

“I love what Marvel has done,” says Dawn Soler, senior vice-president for music for ABC Studios, which oversees most of the Marvel series. “They are not locking into a ‘Marvel sound.’ Super-heroes are becoming a different thing than they were way back when. They are worlds apart. Every score is different.”

The approaches vary widely, from the psychedelic colors of “Legion” to the noirish

Atomic Blonde review – lean, neon-lit thriller

Charlize Theron excels as an action lead in this cold war spy story, adapted from graphic novel The Coldest City

I can’t think of any actor more deserving of their own pulpy action franchise than Charlize Theron. Having stolen Mad Max: Fury Road from Tom Hardy one-handed (literally), she is relentlessly, murderously brilliant in this adaptation of Antony Johnston’s graphic novel The Coldest City. The setting is Berlin just before the fall of the Wall; the paranoid hangover of the cold war is giving way to a new era of hungry opportunism. A British agent has been murdered; a valuable list is missing. And MI5 asset Lorraine Broughton (Theron, looking like Debbie Harry dipped in venom) is flown in to clear up the mess. There she butts heads with fellow agent David Percival (James McAvoy, skeevy-sexy, accessorised with beer sweats and casual treachery) and has a fling with

Great Job, Internet!: A brief history of the far right trying and failing to co-opt pop culture

  • The AV Club
Nazi fop Richard Spencer can’t stop getting punched in the face, whether literally (by random humans on the street), journalistically (by investigators who uncovered he gets his money from an actual fucking cotton plantation), or even figuratively, by the very pop-culture artists he claims to love. First he confessed his life-long passion for Depeche Mode, to which the band replied with a curt, “Fuck off.” Then he attempted to claim Cabaret’s “Tomorrow Belongs To Me” for the “alt-right,” to which the song’s author’s nephew responded with another “fuck off.”

This same cycle has occurred with the greater “alt-right,” Spencer’s loose coalition of white supremacist trolls, who keep making polite overtures to pop-culture entities that want nothing to do with them. While the “alt-right” do have their own subset of bespoke, racist music, language, and media figures, they also are attempting to live in the world

Watch Depeche Mode Bring 'Where's the Revolution' Shout to 'Fallon'

Watch Depeche Mode Bring 'Where's the Revolution' Shout to 'Fallon'
Depeche Mode performed their rousing new song "Where's the Revolution" on The Tonight Show Wednesday. Over Martin Gore's smoldering guitar, Andrew Fletcher's mechanized synths, singer Dave Gahan delivered the song with ominous flare. "You've been pissed on for too long/ Your rights abuse/ Your views refused," he sang. 

"Where's the Revolution" will appear on Depeche Mode's upcoming album, Spirit, out March 17th. James Ford (Florence and the Machine, Arctic Monkeys) produced the record, which marks the band's first since 2013's Delta Machine.

Depeche Mode to Alt-Right: We Are Not Your Official Band
On Thursday, white nationalist Richard Spencer was asked at the Conservative Political Action Conference (Cpac) if he liked rock music, and to Olivia Nuzzi of New York magazine, Spencer responded by declaring that British electronic rock band Depeche Mode is the “official band of the alt-right.” The only problem? The feeling is most definitely not mutual. In a statement released to Gothamist and several other media outlets, a rep for Depeche Mode called Spencer’s comments, and stated that Depeche Mode “has no ties to Richard Spencer or the alt right and does not support the alt right movement.” Also Read: Newsweek Retracts.

Meet 'Oitnb''s Secret Metalhead: Inside Jessica Pimentel's Double Life
It's just after 6 p.m. on a Friday, and Duff's – a noisy heavy-metal bar adorned with autographed memorabilia and jagged-looking instruments in Williamsburg, Brooklyn – has just opened its doors to the sober, work-weary masses. In the center of the room, a woman clad in a black dress and high heels is headbanging atop a carpet adorned with Iron Maiden's corpse-mascot Eddie. The music is "Bleed," an angular, machine-gun–like aural assault that's little over seven minutes long, by Swedish extreme-metal growlers Meshuggah. Bargoers sip their beer in the back,

What Coachella 2017 Will Mean For Dance Music Moving Forward

Coachella 2017 is still a few months out, but anticipation for its next edition is already running high. With the passing of this year’s festival season follows suit a hunger for a new set of lineups to obsess over, and Coachella is certainly leading the pack in this regard. DJ Snake and DJ Khaled have both leaked their slots on the roster, while a number of alleged headliners like Radiohead, Kendrick Lamar, and Beyonce have also been hinted at.

If the trend of previous years follows suit, Goldenvoice won’t begin to reveal the official lineup until January, and aside from some fairly reliable predictions, we’ll have to wait until then to get a better idea of what to expect from the upcoming event.

As illustrated by a timeline put together by Billboard, the evolution of Coachella’s lineup over the years has seen great changes, but electronic dance

Rupert Sanders interview: adapting Ghost In The Shell

Ryan Lambie Nov 22, 2016

From his film’s Tokyo launch event, director Rupert Sanders talks about the process of adapting a live-action Ghost In The Shell...

Adapting a property as respected and acclaimed as Ghost In The Shell must be something of a double-edged sword. On one hand, you have all the startling imagery and rich ideas of the original cyberpunk manga and anime to fall back on; but then again, whatever you create is going to be compared closely to the original.

After a string of 10-second teasers a few months ago, the first full trailer for the highly-anticipated (but very controversial) adaptation of sci-fi classic Ghost in the Shell landed online yesterday [watch it here]. The film, starring Scarlett Johansson, has received a lot of negative press over its ‘white-washing’ cast, but how did the trailer fare with the Flickering Myth writing staff?

Oliver Davis: Nice Depeche Mode cover. Scarlett Johansson is going to get typecast as an alien/robot if she’s not careful.

Thomas O’Connor: There’s something subtly troubling to me about the idea that The Major is now an amnesiac in search of her past, beyond that the amnesiac hero angle in fiction is already played out.

6 Key Things We Learned In The First Ghost In The Shell Trailer

After several intriguing teasers, the first full trailer for the much anticipated – and highly controversial – live-action remake of Ghost in the Shell has finally arrived, and thankfully, it looks pretty awesome.

In case you don’t know, 1995’s Ghost in the Shell – based on the manga series from Masamune Shirow – is considered one of the best examples of the cyberpunk science fiction sub-genre and one of the greatest anime movies of all-time. Since it was announced that the Hollywood version (from Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders) would star Scarlett Johansson, it’s been met with widespread hostility amidst claims of whitewashing – and understandably so.

Now that we’re starting to see footage from the film though, it’s hoped that people will judge it on its own merits and not the media storm that’s grown around it. Certainly, the trailer
