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:
- DEATH CAB FOR CUTIE – MEET ME ON THE EQUINOX
- BAND OF SKULLS – FRIENDS
- THOM YORKE – HEARING DAMAGE
- LYKKE LI – POSSIBILITY
- THE KILLERS – A WHITE DEMON LOVE SONG
- ANYA MARINA – SATELLITE HEART
- MUSE – I BELONG TO YOU (NEW MOON REMIX)
- BON IVER & ST. VINCENT – ROSYLN
- BLACK REBEL MOTORCYCLE CLUB – DONE ALL WRONG
- HURRICANE BELLS – MONSTERS
- SEA WOLF – THE VIOLET HOUR
- OK GO – SHOOTING THE MOON
- GRIZZLY BEAR WITH VICTORIA LEGRAND – SLOW LIFE
- EDITORS – NO SOUND BUT THE WIND
- ALEXANDRE DESPLAT – NEW MOON (THE MEADOW)
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.
