Archer Season 8 : Dreamland is now available on DVD. You can also view it on several streaming platforms. The season features all-new musical score by JG Thirlwell. Thirlwell is now hard at work scoring season nine of the Emmy-winning series, which will premiere later this year.
Archer, the animated satire which is scored by JG Thirlwell, has picked up its first Outstanding Animated Series Emmy on its third consecutive nomination in the category. The episode that clinched the trophy was “The Figgis Agency” , the first episode of Season Seven. Archer edged out stiff competition from last year’s winner Bob’s Burgers, as well as veterans The Simpsons, South Park and the wrapped Phineas and Ferb for the Emmy.
JG Thirlwell is creating the musical score for the new season of the critically acclaimed hit show Archer. Archer is an animated, half-hour comedy that revolves around a former spy agency turned private investigation firm and the lives of its employees. The new season, which is Archer‘s seventh, begins airing on March 31 2016 in the US on the FX network. Until now Archer has been using stock music for their score, and this is their first season with a composer. JG will also continue work on Venture Bros for Adult Swim / Cartoon Network, and will be releasing Volume 2 of Venture Bros soundtracks on his Ectopic Ents label through an arrangement with Adult Swim very soon. Thirlwell was recently nominated for an Annie Award for his work on the Venture Bros, which is the highest honor in the field of animation.
