You may know Minneapolis musician Andrew Broder as the leader of Fog, or for his collaborations with Lambchop, Bon Iver, Open Mike Eagle, Jenny Lewis, Armand Hammer, Denzel Curry, and more. He stays very busy, including work on film and television, and one of his more notable, recent score compositions was for The Show, the 2020 fantasy noir film written by the great Alan Moore (Watchmen, V for Vendetta). The Show Original Soundtrack is now coming out as an album on October 7 via LEX Records.

The album feature appearances by Little Dragon's Yukimi Nagano, serpentwithfeet, Moor Mother, and Billy Woods, and is a mix of atmospheric instrumentals and clubby tracks. "Herbert" falls into the latter category, that works both as mood music as well as a forward-thinking banger. :Over the last few years, I have grown into phase of my work with a greater focus on physicality - I want to get beat up by music and create sound that the body responds to- less precious, more confident," says Andrew. "Meeting and jamming with techno artists like Boys Noize and Dustin Zahn unlocked something for me about the therapeutic and collective nature of dance music. This tune is on the harder edge of ‘Wet Streets at Night’ techno."

Check it out, along with a few other tracks from The Show Score, and the film's trailer, below.
