Cryptozoo: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack artwork by Dash Shaw John Carroll Kirby will make his film score debut with Cryptozoo: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack. Stones Throw will release the soundtrack album on August 13, 2021, with vinyl to follow. Listen to “Phoebe’s Theme”: Spotify | Apple Music | Bandcamp Cryptozoo is an animated feature-film drama, written and directed by Dash Shaw, featuring the voices of Lake Bell, Zoe Kazan, Michael Cera and Louisa Krause. The film won the NEXT Innovator Award at Sundance and premiered internationally at the 2021 Berlinale. It will be released on August 20 in theaters and on demand. This is John Carroll Kirby's first time bringing his talents as a composer and producer to film scoring. His score resists easy genre classification, melding together sounds from New Age, exotica, library music, and the sweeter side of electronic music, and makes for a perfect match with artist and filmmaker Dash Shaw’s vibrant, fantastical animated feature. John Carroll Kirby debuted on Stones Throw with My Garden in April 2020. He has since released Conflict — a solo piano record intended to soothe at a time of crisis — and, most recently, Septet, which saw the LA visionary come together with a full ensemble for the first time, all to great acclaim. He has also collaborated with some of the biggest names in pop music, from Solange to Frank Ocean and Harry Styles.
