Friends and Music

Tuesday, October 6, 2009



This morning my friend (and writer) Luis Romero sent me a mysterious email. It was a wordless message, just a link... and it turned out to be a first listen to the complete soundtrack of ‘Where the Wild Things Are’. As you probably already know the film is directed by Spike Jonze and is set to be released on the 16th of this month. The soundtrack, which can be heard for free *HERE* is by Karen O. (of Yeah Yeah Yeahs fame) and the Kids. (It's extremely pretty!)



(‘Creatures’ were created by the Jim Henson Company)





I loved this commercial… (another Karen and Spike collaboration)





To buy the digital form of the soundtrack you can visit *HERE*.

(Thank you again Luis!)

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! I adore anything by Karen O. - this soundtrack is amazing! I think this may be the first film I have truly gotten excited about in years - I've always adored Where the Wild Things Are. I actually know guys who have tattoos of characters from the book - permanent tattoos! :)
