If you read the interview that Collider’s Steve “Frosty” Weintraub recently conducted with Mondo’s Justin Ishmael, you know that Austin’s biggest screenprint retailer is dead serious about making vinyl a consistent part of their output. Their most recent vinyl release—the soundtrack to Nicolas Winding Refn’s Drive, featuring artwork by the one-and-only Tyler Stout—sold out quickly upon release, and the company’s previous vinyl releases have also sold well…and now we’ve got the details on their next vinyl drop. Pretend you didn’t read the headline and find out when the album’s dropping, what’s on it, and who did the artwork after the jump, folks.
Last year, Mondo put together a fun little event for the 2012 Academy Awards: a few days prior to that Oscar Sunday, Mondo announced that a series of brand-new posters (all of which were based on that year’s Oscar-nominated films) would be dropping throughout the Academy’s broadcast. Everyone dug the idea, the whole thing went off without a hitch, and—most importantly—waiting on a drop gave all of us something to focus on whenever watching the Oscars became too much to bear.
And so, when the Mondo guys announced they’d be doing it all over again in 2013, we were pumped (as were many of you). But once that excitement died down, we were left wondering which of 2012’s Oscar-nominated films would get the Mondo treatment…and which of the rumors we’d been hearing would turn out to be true. Answers to those questions (and many more) await you after the jump, folks.
