The scratchy, unnerving, moody and totally beautiful score gets the praise it deserves.
Mica Levi’s soundtrack for Jonathan Glazer’s wonderfully unsettling Under The Skin, in which Scarlett Johansson plays a mysterious outsider preying on men in the Scottish town and countryside, has been nominated for a BAFTA. Glazer also picked up a nomination in the Outstanding British Film category.
We placed the vinyl edition of the soundtrack number 2 in our top 100 vinyl releases of 2014.
Jóhann Jóhannsson, who recently gave us a rundown of his top 10 drone records of all time, has also been nominated for his The Theory Of Everything score.
