Tekkonkinkreet... Dead-end street
Plaid’s Tekkonkinkreet OST now available digitally
Published on November 19th, 2011 | Jonny Abrams
Plaid’s original score for Tekkonkinkreet, a 2006 Japanese anime about a couple of young street urchins named Black and White battling old-world Yakuza and alien assassins, is now available for digital download.
If you haven’t seen the film or heard any of the score and you’re into a spot of ‘try before you buy’, have yourself an earful of these…
And don’t forget, Scintilli, Plaid’s first studio album proper in eight years (and, according to us, “a typically virtuoso display of synaesthetic eclecticism, veering from Mike Paradinas-esque baroque twinkles to fuzzed-out bass massages, from glacial, Whac-A-Mole synth stabs to ambient menace in which refracted images of Salvador Dali clocks rain down from red skies and nothing is quite as it seems”) is also available now.
