Here are some music samples for potential inclusion in temps / rough cuts as needed; they are generally broadcast quality, and all could be looped / edited as needed. All are instrumental. If you want to try any of these in picture, contact me and I’ll send the files your way.
Playlist 1: Pseudo-classical, or at least atmospheric and restrained.
Alleytime: String bass and a lot of reverb conspire in this homage to the late-period work of the late Don Knotts. 9/24/15
Komodo Adoption Agency: Washy and ambient with a trudging middle section. A tribute to everyone’s favorite giant, murderous, poison-salivating lizard. 9/24/15
Coronation: Almost medieval feeling, like consort music; pensive, distant, elegant and otherworldly
Aguas De La Tristeza: Minor, atmospheric / futuristic, mysterious, a little mournful, slightly Latin
Marea Cambiante: Journey / progress, pretty guitar and harp, slightly pensive then transitioning into elegant and hopeful ending
Reed Party: Slightly kitschy reed organ piece, atmospheric, quietly propulsive, with echoey bells
Pick Nick: Upbeat, pseudo 70s avant-classical feel; positive and propulsive, feeling of completion and resolution
Gusher: Similar time period as “Pick Nick,” upbeat, propulsive piano-led chamber pop.
The Sad Rave: Echoey, mysterious and ambient piano track. Strong feeling of floating / disassociation.
Ghost in the Cab: It’s a rainy night and you decide to take a taxicab home, but it turns out you’re not alone. On the upside, all your ghostly companion wants is to smoke cigarettes and reminisce about ’80s independent films….
Playlist 2: Guitar-based, poppy and / or folky
The Goof: Sweet, kitschy 70’s pop-rock, whistling, propulsive but not heavy
Station Wagon: Cheerful, kitschy / loungey, nostalgic, on a journey / perseverance
Porch Swing: Simple, nostalgic, lighthearted guitar folk
Back Roads: Simple, nostalgic, trekking, lighthearted, guitar folk
Goat Roast: A “field recording” on a remote Greek isle; lots of handclaps and shaken percussion, tinny acoustic guitar
Bingo Champion: It’s a soul and funk basement dance party, circa 1972. Only you can’t afford 45s by popular bands, and the needle on your Fisher-Price turntable is completely crapped out.
Playlist 3: Heavier, louder and more propulsive garage / surf rock
Spies Like Us: High-energy surf / rock guitar trio, danger, mystery, segueing into placid, romantic and relaxing outro
The Stinger: Vintage surf rock, menacing, deliberate and pounding drums, vibey fuzztone guitar and shakers
Rattlesnake: Slightly menacing surf / garage rock, dusty desert vibe
Pinball: Vintage surf / rock, upbeat, cruising, industrious / busy energy
Dodge Dart: 70s’ garagey rock, cruising, a little bit badass, cowbell, muscular
