Label Obscura is proud to announce a deluxe vinyl release of The Crescent OST, Nova Scotia-based filmmaker and Dog Day frontman Seth A Smith’s original motion picture soundtrack for his acclaimed Maritime horror film. Premiering at TIFF’s 2017 Midnight Madness Series and winning three awards including 'Best Soundtrack' from the Atlantic International Film Festival, The Crescent will now screen in select theatres across Canada on August 10th via Raven Banner.

To coincide with the film’s digital release on streaming services, Label Obscura will release the soundtrack in a limited pressing of 300 copies on marbled vinyl with artwork by celebrated collective Yorodeo on September 7th. Dog Day have also announced a pair of reunited live shows in August where they will perform material from the soundtrack.

The Crescent is a family affair like no other. Directed, edited, co-written and scored by Cut/Off/Tail Films’ Seth A. Smith, it was produced by his partner in slime Nancy Urich and stars their two-year-old son Woodrow Graves. As the duo behind beloved indie-rock band Dog Day, Smith and Urich continue to bridge musical connections with a screenplay by avant-garde jaw harpist Darcy “chik white” Spidle, and a heartrending first-time lead performance by Old and Weird’s Danika Vandersteen.

Following a series of short films, The Crescent is the feature-length follow-up to Cut/Off/Tail’s Lowlife, described by NOISEY as “the feel bad hit of 2012.” Set in a remote seaside cottage with eye-popping effects from the body marbling artists of BL Visuals, Smith’s latest transcendent opus delves into the creeping psychological horror of single parenthood as stages of grief summon ancient monstrosities.

Smith’s influences on the film’s soundtrack range from classical music to church organ records to 1970s space-disco. Created with virtual instruments he used to sample improvised voice recordings from the cast and the warped sound of himself pretending to cry, its ominous ambience brings to mind Broadcast’s score for Berberian Sound Studio. Devoted Dog Day fans may even be able to spot a fragment of their song “In The Woods” paying tribute to Rosemary’s Baby. Yet, in the end, the film’s two-year-old star played the biggest role in its soundtrack as well.

“Woody and I go to Value Village together,” says Smith. “He’s super into music and it’s a fun thing to go through the dollar bin to pick out a few records. His favourite bands are Black Sabbath, ABBA, and Daft Punk, so the soundtrack ended up like an amalgamation of those three. When you’re a parent you’re listening to those songs on repeat all day, so we’re lucky that’s the kind of children’s music he likes. They enter your mind and come out in weird ways.”

New and brilliant horror… A unique marriage of
the surreal and the grounded.

The stylish, inventive second feature from the
Nova Scotia-based filmmaker doesn’t hold back.

Copious amounts of intelligence and talent.
