New Tunes :: New Moon OST



I picked up the soundtrack to New Moon tonight after giving it a listen yesterday... and have to say I am very impressed. 15 original tracks... exclusive to the album... from some of my current "on-the-iPhone" fave artists including Thom Yorke, Death Cab for Cutie, Lykke Li, and Grizzly Bear... along with songs from new (to me) bands such as Band of Skulls & Sea Wolf.

Full tracklisting is as follows:
  1. DEATH CAB FOR CUTIE – MEET ME ON THE EQUINOX
  2. BAND OF SKULLS – FRIENDS
  3. THOM YORKE – HEARING DAMAGE
  4. LYKKE LI – POSSIBILITY
  5. THE KILLERS – A WHITE DEMON LOVE SONG
  6. ANYA MARINA – SATELLITE HEART
  7. MUSE – I BELONG TO YOU (NEW MOON REMIX)
  8. BON IVER & ST. VINCENT – ROSYLN
  9. BLACK REBEL MOTORCYCLE CLUB – DONE ALL WRONG
  10. HURRICANE BELLS – MONSTERS
  11. SEA WOLF – THE VIOLET HOUR
  12. OK GO – SHOOTING THE MOON
  13. GRIZZLY BEAR WITH VICTORIA LEGRAND – SLOW LIFE
  14. EDITORS – NO SOUND BUT THE WIND
  15. ALEXANDRE DESPLAT – NEW MOON (THE MEADOW)
The Thom Yorke song is particularly strong... but then so is the Band of Skulls song. I have a feeling that this is an album that will become part of me... in the way other excellent OSTs have like The Lost Boys or Pump Up The Volume.

You may not be a fan of the books... or have any desire to see the film... but I would recommend this soundtrack... its very good. It is the sound of now... and I like that about it.

Check it out.
