Nathan Johnson

Also known through his band The Cinematic Underground, Nathan Johnson’s first scoring gig was on cousin Rian Johnson’s directorial debut, the 2005 neo-noir Brick. He’s worked with his cousin on every film since, including the upcoming Looper (2012). The track “Emily’s Theme” on the Brick soundtrack is worth Johnson’s inclusion in this list alone. If you feel like having a brood for the rest of the day, I’d recommend you click play.
