New Moon Soundtrack (From Stereogum)

14 Oct

The whole Twilight thing is really beyond me, but I’ve never really liked vampires much anyway. I’m more of a werewolf man myself. Either way the soundtrack sounds like it’s going to be pretty damn good, so who am I to hate on a teenage girl fantasy of dating a vampire.

Thom Yorke – “Hearing Damage”

Bon Iver & St. Vincent – “Roslyn”

Grizzly Bear (feat. Victoria Legrand) – “Slow Life”

A bit of info on the artists above

Thom Yorke is the lead singer of the hugely influential British rock band Radiohead (just in case you didn’t know…). Without a doubt whenever Thom does something, the indie music world pees itself a little in anticipation.

Bon Iver (pronounced ee-ver like the French word for winter) is the stage name of Justin Vernon. He put out a beautiful album in 2007 titled “For Emma, Forever Ago” and just this year released with a new band, Volcano Choir. St. Vincent is the stage name of Annie Clark, former member of the Polyphonic Spree. I don’t actually have any good excuse why we haven’t talked about her at all on this site. Her newest album “Actor” is fantastic. (note to self, talk about St. Vincent more)

Grizzly Bear is some band based in Brooklyn. That is all. I mean really? C’mon, it seems like they’re playing “Two Weeks” on every talk show in america, I feel like my mom knows who they are. Victoria Legrand is half of Beach House, an awesome indie pop duo from Baltimore, Maryland (what what!). Anyway she is awesome, and that band just got signed by Sub Pop so watch out…On another note she does backup vocals on “Two Weeks” so I think my mom could probably recognize a picture of her. Go mom.
