I'm thrilled that the good people at Superior Viaduct records are reissuing Alain Goraguer's beautiful and strange score to the beautiful and strange French science fiction animated film, La Planète Sauvage (1973). Goraguer is a composer and pianist who emerged from the Parisian jazz scene in the early 1960s writing and playing with Boris Vian and later Serge Gainsbourg in the early 1960s. This glorious soundtrack has inspired (and been sampled by) myriad electronic and hip-hop artists, from Air to Madlib to J Dilla. You can pre-order the special edition translucent blue vinyl, that includes a poster, directly from Superior Viaduct:
