Soundtracks

La Planete Sauvage (aka Fantastic Planet) remains one of the most fascinating animated films ever produced. Its soundtrack, composed by Serge Gainsbourg associate Alain Goraguer, is a classic in its own right, expressing confusion and wonder through dreary yet groovy jazz-funk. The album's been sampled by numerous hip-hop and electronic producers, and it's easily available on vinyl thanks to Superior Viaduct.

Soft Rock

Led by the distinctive piano pop of "Avenging Annie," Andy Pratt's self-titled second LP introduced the American singer/songwriter's idiosyncratic style to a wider audience and paving the way for pop grandeur of his 1976 follow-up Resolution.
