The lovely Sylvia from Porchlight Films has given me two CDs of the soundtrack from The Rover to give away.  So in conjunction with our sister site, Robert Pattinson Australia, Michôd’s Kingdom is giving one lucky follower the chance to win a copy of the soundtrack.  (If you want a second chance to win you can also enter at RPAustralia).  I’ve scanned the images from the CD below:

Ten years after the collapse of society, the rule of the law has disintegrated and life is cheap. Eric (Guy Pearce) travels the desolate towns and roads of the outback.

“6. “The Rover”
You gotta hand it to Aussie David Michôd. After “Animal Kingdom” the world was his oyster and he spent months in Hollywood looking at scripts and potential projects. But for a second act Michôd decided to take a bold left turn with “The Rover,” a dissonant, minimalist two-hander that feels literally scorched by the sun. For his post-economic-collapse picture, Michôd decided to only employ post-apocalyptic modes through mood, atmosphere, and music. While there’s some score by Antony Partos utilized, the bulk of the movie’s simmering, sinister musical tendencies are discordant and cacophonous source music by experimental and ambient composers the director chose (all of it listed here). There’s seminal avant-garde musician William Basinski (who might be experiencing a minor renaissance since he was used in “The Comedy” in 2013), Chicago post-rockers Tortoise, and Montreal-based saxophonist and multireedist Colin Stetson—a touring member of Arcade Fire, Bell Orchestre, and Bon Iver (he also wrote the underrated score for “Blue Caprice” along with Sarah Neufeld from Arcade Fire). “The Rover” is not the most inviting or forgiving movie, but that’s the point (and of course a chipper Keri Hilson song briefly breaks the mood in a moment that’s both comical and yet heartbreaking). It’s a bleak, nihilistic look at the strange and unlikely partnership between a deceptively complex simpleton (Robert Pattinson) and callous, nearly inhuman man (Guy Pearce) who will stop at nothing to retrieve all that he has lost. And Michôd’s soundtrack is equally cruel, heartless, and unrelenting—in the best way.”

We all know how important music is to David to help set the mood.  So why wouldn’t you want to own this if you already don’t! For your chance to win, just comment on the site or retweet on Twitter and ensure you hashtag with #RPAU&MKgiveaway. We will then select our lucky winner.

This giveaway is open until 6.00 pm (AEST) Sunday 28 December 2014. The lucky winners will be announced on 30 December 2014 (AEST).

  1. Scoot on over SundayM649. I need to get on this bandwagon too. I loved hearing David talking talking about the iTunes rabbit hole journey he went on for The Rover. Days spent like that are bliss. Unfortunately, when I do it, it doesn’t translate into an awesome soundtrack for the best Aussie movie of 2014.
