Netflix Marvel shows have reinvented superhero television. While their stories are absolutely engaging and suck you in from the first episode, they also have some killer soundtracks. You can’t help but get pumped when you hear the Daredevil soundtrack, and the jazzy Jessica Jones soundtrack perfectly encapsulates her wit, sarcasm, and attitude. After Mondo experienced some crazy success releasing the amazing Luke Cage soundtrack on vinyl, they decided to continue releasing the soundtracks of each of the Defenders. The soundtracks for both Daredevil (season one) and Jessica Jones are next, accompanied by more amazing artwork from Matthew Woodson (the artist from the Luke Cage vinyl).
Both records feature Woodson’s interpretation of each hero on the cover, and the interior gratefold features an image of the Big Bad from each series–Wilson Fisk for Daredevil and Kilgrave for Jessica Jones. And just like the Luke Cage soundtrack, the records themselves will also have a unique look, with red vinyl for Daredevil and purple for Jessica Jones.
John Paesano’s Daredevil score did the hard work of setting the tone for the Netflix Marvel universe as well as capturing Matt Murdock’s journey through the darkness of Hell’s Kitchen.
Meanwhile, Sean Callery’s score for Jessica Jones captures the show’s departure from Daredevil’s gritty tone and highlights the noir element of the show with a mix of street corner jazz and wailing guitar.
Both of these records are perfect for the vinyl-loving comic book fan, and are a fun way to celebrate each show’s unique and brilliant soundtrack. Plus, with the holidays coming up, now is the perfect time to scoop up one of these records for yourself or that Marvel fan in your life. These records will go on sale on Wednesday, November 9 at 12 pm CST online for $25.00. However, if you’re in New York, the records will also be on sale at the House of Wax bar inside Alamo Drafthouse’s new Brooklyn location beginning on November 9. Just be sure you don’t wait too long to scoop yourself up a copy. Mondo is only selling 3,000 copies of each soundtrack!
