Andy Hull and Robert McDowell – Swiss Army Man Soundtrack

On 2014’s Hope, Manchester Orchestra showcased a side of themselves that they had only teased in their previous work. The record reworked the songs from that year’s Cope with a focus on the quiet and calmer spaces absent of traditional alternative rock riffs, unearthing something truly beautiful. Frontman Andy Hull had explored this side of himself more personally with his side project Right Away, Great Captain!, but Hope doubled down on that effort. The resulting product showed a lot more growth than just being able to play their own songs less loudly.
