Soundtrack for the comic-book-movie hybrid streaming over at Spinner
Later this week the highly anticipated film based on the comic series of the same name “Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World” will hit theaters.
From the trailers it looks a little hokey. (Even though the interactive trailer was kind of awesome.) What we’re more excited about is the soundtrack produced by long-time Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich, which is currently streaming at Spinner. If it’s good enough for Godrich to produce a soundtrack to then it might even be good enough to pay $13 to see.
The soundtrack features cuts from such artists as Beck (“Sex-Bob-Omb”), Frank Black, T. Rex and The Black Lips—talk about Godrich culling some heavy hitters. But when it comes to movies these day the soundtrack is sometimes just as important as the film. Just look at the great artists that were drawn together for the swill of a film, “Twilight.”
If mediocre movies like “Twilight” (and possibly “Scott Pilgrim”) keep pumping out great soundtracks then we’re A-OK with the zen balance of good and bad art co-mingling.
