The 8th Passenger Cassette Release Show

Last year at Northwest Film Forum, Seattle quartet Newaxeyes performed a live soundtrack for Ridley Scott’s classic Alien; they did the 1979 sci-fi horror film justice, and then some. Thankfully, the performance was recorded and young local label Freakout Records is celebrating the release of the double cassette tonight. Titled The 8th Passenger, Newaxeyes’ score vividly captures the godforsaken foreboding and nerve-racking claustrophobia that permeate Alien—as well as including some interludes of forlorn beauty. The band displays a masterly command of dynamics and textures that out-scare (out-Skerritt?) the work of original soundtracker Jerry Goldsmith. The 8th Passenger could be the start of a long, rewarding career in cinema for Newaxeyes. DAVE SEGAL
