Two Mothra original motion picture soundtracks are on the way, and they offer a combination of fantastic cover art and gorgeous vinyl. First, we’ll look at a collaboration between the Big Bad Toy Store and Waxwork Records. Due out this July, the soundtrack for Mothra’s first film is coming to two-disc vinyl. Featuring cover art by Yuko Shimizu, the 180-gram Mothra records come pressed in crystal blue, matching the protective creature’s eyes. The film’s score was composed by Yuji Koseki.
This release is limited to only 500 copies. It can be pre-ordered now for $44.99.
The score by Yūjui Koseki features booming orchestral pieces that accompany Mothra in her mission to protect her people countered by waves of clairvoyant and electronically performed compositions including sci-fi sound effects. Sprinkled throughout the score, The Peanuts sing ballads to their beloved winged Kaiju, recognized by their iconic vocal doubling.
While Waxwork Records has the better cover art, Mondo steals the show regarding how the vinyl record looks. Rebirth of Mothra: Original Motion Picture Score LP is pressed with coloring that recreates the look of the Queen’s wings. It’s pretty beautiful. As someone who collects vinyl and displays them, this is a must-buy. The best part? The record is only $30!
This OST is limited to 2,000 copies and is available now. The 1996 film was composed by Toshiyuki Watanabe.
Mondo exclusive edition of 2000 units pressed on 140gram Mothra’s Wings vinyl (orange with white and black splatter). Housed inside a silver laminate reflective board gatefold jacket and obi strip.
Rebirth of Mothra‘s soundtrack can be listened to over on Spotify.
