Muhly's score for this upcoming drama about a murder among the Beat Generation poets has already gotten a mention in a review of the film posted at Indiewire:
"KILL YOUR DARLINGS often looks quite beautiful. The production design is great for its shoestring budget and Nico Muhly’s score ('The Reader,' 'Margaret') is often the most beautiful and affecting element of the piece."
I have two score CD's by Muhly and I love them both. Joshua is one the most strident and beautiful horror scores I've heard in years. It reminds me of Goldsmith in it's design and execution. The Reader is a low-key, but very effective score, with some lovely, melancholic music that just breaks your heart (seeing the film added to my enjoyment of the score...Joshua less so). I think that's everything, film-score-wise, by him (that I know of anyway). I know he had a score rejected for that post-9/11 film that Desplat took over on and Margaret never got released. I keep meaning to give a listen to his non-score CD's, but haven't gotten 'round to it yet. This sounds cool, hope someone sticks it out (preferably on CD).
Just watched this and really enjoyed the score. Takes Muhly's traditional piano/strings classical-sounding sensibilities and adds some Jon Brion-esque touches. Minimal and effective. Sad to see there's not an album yet!
