NEWS: New Moon Soundtrack Is Bound To Be Better Than The Film...


So, here's the sad truth. Actually, a few sad truths:

- I saw Twilight, and enjoyed it, even with its flaws. Not a good film at all, but entertaining. Vampires who are also diamond are fun to make jokes about. Good times all around.

- The films soundtrack is one that will go down as one of my favorites from last year.

- The second film is bound to be better than the first, based solely on the first full length trailer

- Finally, the second film's soundtrack is set to be HUGE. Here's why.

According to The Playlist, the New Moon soundtrack, due out October 20th, will feature tracks from wannabe-hipster-yet-also-fan-of-Jonas-Brothers (yeah, I'm looking at you twitards) such as The Killers and Deathcab For Cutie, to truly brilliant artists like Muse, Bon Iver, Radiohead (Thom Yourke to be exact), and Grizzly Bear. Here's the full tracklisting.

"New Moon" soundtrack tracklist.
* 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)
* 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 — SLOW LIFE
* EDITORS — NO SOUND BUT THE WIND
* ALEXANDRE DESPLAT — NEW MOON (THE MEADOW)


This is basically the soundtrack equivalent of those LSTN mixtapes released by UrbanOutfitters.com, just a lot less inspired. Sure, the soundtrack is amazing where it hits, but seriously, OK GO?

What are YOUR thoughts on this soundtrack?

Go see something good!

  1. BON IVER WHAT HAVE YOU DONE?!?!? (don't sell out like iron & wine... (although props to them for getting their names out there; there are better ways to do so than throwing money at a sex-crazed monster movie industry))

  2. I totally agree Dan. I love Bon Iver, and I wish people would get into these amazing groups without having to be told by a shitty vampire film that these guys and girls are talented. It really grinds my gears.
