I had a piece picked out for this week, but it’s a pretty complex work that I want to hear a couple more times before I actually feature it, so this week I’ll take an “easy” route. This is a short track called “Anthem” by composer Michael Abels, featured in the score he wrote for the Jordan Peele film Us. I haven’t seen any of Peele’s movies yet (and yes, I know this is a big gap in my media consumption), but I like what I’ve heard of Abels’s music (previously featured in this space).
Here is “Anthem”. It’s atmospherically creepy, and reminiscent of Jerry Goldsmith’s “Ave Satani” from The Omen.
