James Lavelle – Trust (Original Series Soundtrack)
UNKLE’s James Lavelle has made the music for a number of films and television shows in his time (Sexy Beast, anyone?), but Trust might be his most high-profile gig yet - a ten-part series, directed by Danny Boyle, that centres around the real-life events of America’s ultra-wealthy Getty family. Given that much of Trust takes place in Italy - the series kicks off with the notorious kidnapping of a teenage John Paul Getty III - it’s no surprise to find strong strains of Giallo and Italian library music in Lavelle’s score. When combined with his typically tense brand of trip-hop electronics the result is a potent and powerful listen.
