It's a good day to be Ben Wheatley. The director, who's become one of the most talked-about new directors around thanks to "Down Terrace" and "Kill List," is making his Cannes debut today with his dark, Edgar Wright-exec-produced comedy "Sightseers" -- a press screening is underway as we speak, and we'll have our verdict for you later this evening.

*full disclosure: an online copy of this CD was provided by Menton3 or their associates.
If the comic book "Monocyte" ever received an animated theatrical treatment, and the producers are stuck as to who should create the soundtrack, not many musicians will be up to the challenge. DJ Shadow and Portishead’s style is appropriate, and that's where this music gets its inspiration from, but others may not live up to conjuring forth the same surrealistic imagery created by artist Menton3.
Appropriately enough, he also has a band, Saltillo; the music they create invokes feelings of trooping down the carnal remains of the beast whilst guarded by an angelic maestro.
The album is simply called "Monocyte." The project is described as trip-hop electronic meets violin and cello. Easy listeners may think more of it as symphonic meets industrial electronica. The acoustics certainly conjures forth imagery of strolling through techno-organic matter. »
