Bon Iver – Heavenly Father

By Will Oliver, July 18th 2014 — with 1 comment

Bon Iver

Although Bon Iver are taking a break from performing, they have released a new song called “Heavenly Father” that appears on the soundtrack of Zach Braff’s new film, Wish I Was Here. The film was released today, but the song itself has been out for a little bit.

Any new music from Bon Iver is always a treat, and “Heavenly Father” is no different. It’s a magic journey that features all the emotional qualities that you’ve come to expect from the wizard that is Justin Vernon.

Stream “Heavenly Father” below.

Wish I Was Here Poster

The Shins and Zach Braff go way back. His use of “New Slang” and “Caring Is Creepy” in his directorial debut Garden State helped launch their popularity, changing their career forever (or really James Mercer nowadays).

So it’s no surprise that they’ve reunited again for Wish I Was Here, Braff’s new film (and first since Garden State).

The film’s latest trailer features a brand new song from The Shins. It’s presumably set to appear on the film’s soundtrack, and it sound amazing from what we can tell.

You can check out the trailer right now over at Monday Morning Matinee.

How To Train Your Dragon 2

When animated film How to Train Your Dragon came out back in 2010, I took my little brother to it expecting absolutely nothing. I left the theater totally blown away. It’s now one of my favorite animated films, and I can’t wait to see the sequel How to Train Your Dragon 2 later this summer. (Watch the trailer over at Monday Morning Matinee)

The soundtrack of the original film featured a song called “Sticks and Stones” from Jónsim frontman of Sigur Rós. Jónsi has once again contributed a song for the series, this time offering a song called “Where No One Goes.” Just one listen to the sweeping anthem will make you see how perfect of a fit it is for the soundtrack. Lovely strings and a pounding drum summon up all kinds of grandiose feelings of emotion.

Enjoy “Where No One Goes” below. The soundtrack will be released on June 10 via Relativity

Lykke Li – No One Ever Loved

Lykke Li

Lykke Li has been busy with the release of her new album I Never Learn, but she also has been offering her musical talents in other ways.

She’s offered up a lovely track called “No One Ever Loved” to the upcoming film The Fault In Our Stars, which is set to cause many tears when it hits theaters on June 6. You can catch a trailer for the film over at MMM. (not her only contribution to a film soundtrack this year)

“No One Ever Loved” hits all the right notes, certainly well built for a film that’s bound to open up the water works emotionally. Take a listen to it below.

Devonté Hynes – Palo Alto

By Will Oliver, April 28th 2014

Palo Alto

I’m bummed out I didn’t get to see Palo Alto at the Tribeca Film Fest last weekend, but it will get a release in early May. The film was scored by Devonté Hynes, who you may know as Blood Orange. He also made a song for the film’s soundtrack, a song also titled “Palo Alto.”

He did everything on the track (Vocals, Guitar, Piano, Wurlitzer, Bass, Drums) aside from the back-up vocals which come from his girlfriend Samantha Urbani (of Friends).

“Palo Alto” is a lush and gorgeous track, something that would have been home on soundtracks of its fair share of 80s flicks.

[new]: Lykke Li – Du är den ende

Lykke Li Du ar den ende

Lykke Li releases her new album I Never Learn on May 5. We recently heard our first cut from the album, a track called “Love Me Like I’m Not Made Of Stone.”

She’s since followed that up with a new track called “Du är den ende” (which translates to “You Are the Only”), only it is not from the album. It’s actually a track she recording for a Swedish film called Tommy. She sings in Swedish, and it’s a lovely contribution. Very dreamy but also haunting.

Find it posted below.

[new]: M83 – I Need You

By Will Oliver, March 4th 2014

Divergent Soundtrack

M83′s brainchild Anthony Gonzalez continues to deliver lush scores for some big Hollywood movies. His latest work goes towards the the upcoming film Divergent.

It’s a song titled “I Need You” that features some heavenly vocals that have that very M83 sweeping feel. As if you’re floating upwards towards the good graces of the heavens, only to be taken right back home with one big jazzy section that throws a whole load of emotions on you, until the feels become to much to handle. Then it’s time to hit repeat.

Will be interesting to see how they use “I Need You” in the film. Hope it gets a good scene, because it definitely deserves it. This is a monstrous track.

Enjoy “I Need You” below.

Endless Love Soundtrack

Matt Berninger of The National joins up with The Bird and the Bee on a track called “All Our Endless Love.” The song is a part of the soundtrack for the film Endless Love.

Matt joins in on the second half of the piano ballad duet, adding nicely to the first half of the song which is handled by The Bird and the Bee’s Inara George.

[new]: M83 – Ali & Matthias

By Will Oliver, November 13th 2013

M83 - Ali & Matthias

M83′s frontman Anthony Gonzalez just doesn’t stop working. He’s easily one of the hardest workers currently in the game. When he’s not releasing stuff with his band, he’s scoring soundtracks such as the Tom Cruise starring Oblivion or producing songs for The Killers.

He continues his soundtrack contributions with a score for the film You and the Night. You can find the film’s trailer over at MMM.

He’s already shared a song from the soundtrack called “Ali & Matthias.” It’s more of a lovely orchestration from M83, with a more dear approach, as opposed to the widescreen bombast that we’re so used to. Here’s the description of the song that accompanies its soundcloud stream:

Here is a new track from ‘You And The Night’. The soundtrack pays tribute to French soundtracks from the 70′s and is much more intimate than ‘Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming’ and the ‘Oblivion’ Soundtrack. This score is really for lovers and ghosts.

Check out “Ali & Matthias” below.
