Marvel is so far shooting three-for-three with regards to its series endeavors on Netflix. Daredevil, Jessica Jones, and Luke Cage have all been loudly praised for their writing, directing, and acting. However, one aspect of the shows that have not been getting sufficient attention is their music. Of the three, the soundtrack to Luke Cage—with its “classic cinema meets classic hip-hop” vibe carefully woven together by Adrian Young and Ali Shaheed Muhammad—has gotten the closest to the correct amount of attention. That’s due in part to Mondo’s decision to release Marvel’s Luke Cage Original Soundtrack as a two-disk collector’s vinyl set.
Well, now the online art gallery and all-around geek-interest store is getting ready to do the same thing for the other two gritty superhero shows.
The pulsating and kinetic movements of John Paesano’s Daredevil score will come via 180g red vinyl, while the noir-ish jazzy wails of Sean Callery’s Jessica Jones will be delivered on two 180g violent (what else?) disks. Only 3,000 of each are being pressed.
“We are so proud to continue the series of Marvel soundtracks with Daredevil and Jessica Jones,” Mondo Record Label Manager Mo Shafeek said of the releases. “It’s extremely exciting to see each character come to life and with each new soundtrack it feels like we are building something bigger along the way, just like the characters in the shows are coming together for a larger purpose.”
The online release for both soundtracks is today at noon.
