Animaniacs: Season 1 Soundtrack is Out Now from Watertower Music

Animaniacs Season 1 (Soundtrack from the Animated Series)

WaterTower Music has released the Animaniacs Season 1 (Soundtrack from the Animated Series), featuring the music from the brand-new version of the iconic family-friendly cartoon franchise Animaniacs. Hulu, Amblin Television and Warner Bros. Animation proudly announced the series which saw its long-awaited return on Hulu late last year through 13 brand-new episodes, twenty-two years after the final episode of the original series had aired. Steven Spielberg returned as executive producer of the series, with Sam Register, President, Warner Bros. Animation and Warner Digital Series, and Amblin Television Co-Presidents Justin Falvey and Darryl Frank also serving as executive producers.

The Animaniacs Season 1 (Soundtrack from the Animated Series) features music performed in the show by the Animaniacs.

The series marked the first Hulu Original Series for families. The original Animaniacs made its television debut in 1993 and went on to become one of the most popular animated series for children. Since its premiere, the series has launched spin-offs and characters including Pinky and the Brain and has set the record for most Daytime Emmy Awards in the field of Outstanding Achievement in Music Direction and Composition for any animated series, winning three times.

Animaniacs is a smart update to the classic series. The producers and artists went through a rigorous process to update the character designs and establish a visual style for their world that feels fresh and familiar at the same time. The show is a comforting dose of nostalgia for fans of the original series with the return of Pinky and the Brain, and other fan-favorite characters with the original voice cast. The show is a wonderful opportunity for adults and parents who were fans of the show when they were young to introduce these beloved characters to their kids.

In addition to the visual aspect of the series, the intuitive humor and sophisticated social commentary of the show retains that of the original series, thoughtfully infuse it with modern and topical sensibilities. The music was also given a thoughtful update. For the original and soon-to-be classic musical numbers, the producers played around with current music genres as well like KPOP and EDM.

Season Two of Animaniacs debuts on Hulu on November 5.

Superstate Gets a Soundtrack Tie-in from Graham Coxon

Superstate is a new graphic novel and accompanying original soundtrack, out 27th August 2021, in association with Z2 Comics. The high-concept world of Superstate encompasses the pairing of an original album soundtrack of 15 new songs from Graham Coxon, with a graphic novel of 15 stories featuring the work of 15 artists, and writers Alex Paknadel and Helen Mullane, with album and book cover artwork by Coxon himself.

Otakon 2021 Sunday Concert to Feature “The Band Returns: J-MUSIC Ensemble LIVE!”

J-MUSIC Ensemble

Otakorp has announced the Otakon 2021 Sunday concert titled “The Band Returns: J-MUSIC Ensemble LIVE!“. The concert is presented by J-MUSIC Ensemble.

J-MUSIC Ensemble is an 8-piece, jazz-rooted band that is dedicated to bringing new perspectives to the world of Japanese music. Featuring blazing brass melodies and chilling saxophone solos, this band fuses its background in the jazz tradition with the catchy and brilliant nature of modern Japanese music to create powerful new versions of J-Pop/J-Rock songs, anime and video game music, and more. Since its inception, the J-MUSIC Ensemble has been building a sizeable following of dedicated fans around the world and has been notably featured with figures such as Donna Burke (“Metal Gear Solid” series, “Final Fantasy”, “Tokyo Ghoul”) and Adam Neely, with appearances on Nippon TV, KAI-YOU, and other Japanese media outlets. The idea was conceived by world-renowned and Grammy-nominated saxophonist, Patrick Bartley (sasakure.UK, Wynton Marsalis, Jon Batiste), who grew up hearing video game and anime soundtracks while simultaneously learning jazz and other American music styles and had a dream to someday bring those worlds together.

Otakon takes place August 6-8 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in our nation’s capital of Washington, DC.

J Balvin Teams Up with Transformers for First-Ever Music Collab Figure

Hasbro and NTWRK today announced the first Transformers Collaborative music-inspired item – the J Balvin Mash-Up, J Balvintron 3-Pack. Hasbro and NTWRK have partnered with J Balvin, one of the most influential and successful Latin artists, to bring this truly special blend of music-inspired toy and “More Than Meets the Eye” worlds together for fans.

Sound waves combine in this Transformers-J Balvin mash-up pack! “Reggaeton’s global ambassador” joins the Decepticons as the Transformers robot, J Balvintron. This Decepticon wields the power of rhythm to crush his enemies! The 7-inch tall Soundwave-inspired figure converts into cassette player mode in 6 steps and features deco and details inspired by J Balvin – including packaging inspired by J Balvin’s rainbow color scheme and his iconic smiley face icon with lightning bolt eyes. He comes with two mini cassette figures, with deco inspired by albums “Energia” and “Vibras”. The Energia Buzzsaw converts to condor mode in 4 steps, and Vibras Stripes converts to tiger mode in 3 steps. The figure also includes a blaster accessory and two rainbow blast effects.

Balvin, who is a diehard Transformers fan and watched the classic G1 animated series as a kid, had a huge part in making this unique collaboration happen. From his love for tigers, which inspired one of the mini-cassette figures with a strong big cat resemblance, to naming the figure J Balvintron.

The NTWRK platform that has brilliantly developed a new form of e-tail – selling products via bite-size video broadcasts and episodic content – will premiere an animated stop motion video highlighting J BALVINTRON converting and an interview with Transformers team designer to give fans a behind the scenes, detailed look at the figure, before debuting for sale.

Find full product information below:

Product Name: ​ Transformers Collaborative: J Balvin Mash-Up, J Balvintron 3-Pack

  • Size: Stands 7 inches when in robot mode
  • Age: Made for ages 8+
  • Retail Price: $69.99

Transformers robots have always been…More Than Meets the Eye, but now through the Transformers Collaborative, fans can experience these larger than life characters as they team-up, mash-up, and meet up with other characters, teams, and people who share this same special quality. The J Balvin collaboration acts as the first music partnership for the brand since the Transformers Collaborative launched in 2019, in addition to marking the first-ever Latin music, Decepticon, and G1-inspired collaboration! NTWRK is the first platform where viewers can buy the collaborative figure.

Beartooth and Z2 Take Readers on The Journey Below

Z2 Comics pairs with Ohio’s hardcore stalwarts Beartooth for the official prequel to their brand-new album, Below. Following up on last week’s release of their brand new album, amidst rave reviews, The Journey Below serves as a prequel to the pummeling sounds of Below; the world of Barry, its demon overlord.

Told by #1 New York Times best-selling author Tony Lee with the members of Beartooth, The Journey Below is a powerful tale reminding us of the vital power contained within every chord and beat of a song. It features art by Szymon Kudranski.

Beartooth will bring their new antihero and mascot Barry to comics this fall in Beartooth: The Journey Below, the official companion to their brand new album, available to preorder now in both a standard softcover and hardcover formats, as well as slipcase, deluxe and super deluxe editions featuring exclusive prints and vinyl.
