John Carpenter’s debut solo album, Lost Themes, is amazing

John Carpenter’s ‘Lost Themes’ is so good, it’s scary.



he coolest people tend to wear multiple hats. Kanye can hit you with beats and rhymes all day, and fall back for a hot-second while he designs kicks that compete with Jordan. When JAY Z isn’t setting the standard for cool with a new album release, he’s managing the careers of some of our favourite athletes — among many many other things. Not to suggest that everyone should go out and try to become as multi-dimensional as they possibly can, I mean if your vocals are wack, by all means please stick to rapping. We already have a Phonte and a Drake who can supply us with the heat we need off that stove. It’s better to be great at one thing than to appear to be decent at many, at least in my opinion.

Besides, it’s a luxury to be able to have the time and resources to practice multiple disciplines of art. Shoot, learning one can take a lifetime, and usually does but that’s why the cats that actually pull it off deserve high praise. John Carpenter, mostly known and/or recognized for his influential horror films, is just showin’ out with his debut solo music project, “Lost Themes.” Most would be surprised to know that he was the composer behind the music for films such as Halloween and Escape from New York. So yeah, he’s no rookie out here but this is his first album made without movies scenes to reference or inspire. It’s so good, it’s scary. Check out “Night” below.
