2x12" Vinyl UK
Daniel Lopatin’s (aka Oneohtrix Point Never) soundtrack for the movie “Uncut Gems” by Josh and Benny Safdie. The double vinyl is housed in a gatefold sleeve with download code included.
Daniel Lopatin returns as composer for Josh and Benny Safdie’s latest film Uncut Gems, whose soundtrack will be out internationally December 13 from Warp Records the same day the film is released in U.S. theaters by A24. The film stars Adam Sandler, NBA player Kevin Garnett, Lakeith Stanfield, Idina Menzel, Abel “The Weeknd” Tesfaye, and Julia Fox, and has screened to rapturous response from critics and audiences at the Telluride, Toronto and New York film festivals. The hypnotic crime thriller follows Sandler’s Howard Ratner, a charismatic hustler always on the lookout for the next big score, on a twisted odyssey in pursuit of the windfall of a lifetime (watch trailer). Daniel Lopatin (Oneohtrix Point Never) and the Safdie brothers have developed a close partnership over the years through their shared love of cult genre movies and music. As Josh Safdie recently said in an interview with Variety, "I was a fan of his music… his albums are very conceptual, and he was making basically scores for movies that didn’t exist. So when we met on Good Time, after he saw the way we were using a lot of Debussy on our film prior to that, he was like, ‘Oh let’s get deep together,’ and we’ve become very close friends."
