Lemongrassmusic has released the fourth volume in its Cinematic Lounge series. The compilation is just in time for the darker months in that the songs on the release are often pretty dark – some of them fitting for a small indie film, and others appropriate for a big thriller. Soundtrack is the theme for the album. The label describes it as:
a collection of contemporary electronic lounge music gently spiced with ideas of soundtracks for movies and short films yet to be written…. let your imagination follow these paths for a while and you will soon find yourself in the middle of your own screenplay.
