Published Jul 17, 2013A Field in England is a decidedly different sort of historical drama, and following the film's recent release in the UK, its soundtrack will soon receive a vinyl pressing. The release will arrive on August 1 through Rook Films.
The double-LP soundtrack features the original score by Jim Williams, "Chernobyl" by Blanck Mass (a.k.a. Benjamin John Power of Fuck Buttons), and one full side arranged by director Ben Wheatley (Kill List, Sightseers) and sound designer Martin Pavey entitled "Metallic Fields 1"; in a product description, "Metallic Fields 1" is referred to as a "kinetic audio synapse fryer."
The soundtrack is available in a limited edition of 400 signed copies. They come on white vinyl with a "psychedelic poster." It's available to pre-order right here.
A Field in England concerns a group of soldiers fleeing the English Civil War of the 17th century. It's a low-budget affair in black and white, and it's filled with bleak imagery and a nightmarish psychedelia courtesy of some wild mushrooms. Watch a trailer at the bottom of this page.
