VIDEO: Where The Wild Things Are Soundtrack Behind The Scenes...
Yeah, this is a short video, but really, any excuse I have to put Karen O up on this tiny little blog, is good cause for yours truly. Here's the scoop, straight from The Playlist:
In case your memory is short, O's musical collaborators on the soundtrack (who she dubbed collectively as Karen O & The Kids) which she wrote and orchestrated (though there is a separate score for the film as well done by Carter Burwell) is an eclectic mass of indie rockers — members of the Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs, Jonze's brother, producer Squeak-E Clean, Bradford Cox of Deerhunter, Yeah Yeah Yeahs/Folk Implosion collaborator Imaad Wasif and Jack Lawrence of The Raconteurs and Dead Weather, Dean Fertita (member of Queens of the Stone Age, The Dead Weather, The Raconteurs), Liars' guitarist Aaron Hemphill, the Bird and the Bee's Greg Kurstin, Services' Tristan Bechet, and Gris Gris's Oscar Michel, plus a an untrained children's choir.
I've had a chance to actually listen to this soundtrack (never won a copy like I did the Whip It soundtrack. Where you at Playlist?), and I must say, this is one that all must pick up. It's currently out on shelves, and this is a really stunning collection of artists and the outcome is beyond that. It's a really superb soundtrack, and I hope you all enjoy this awesome, albeit short, little behind the scenes video.
