Out This Week 9/29

Where the Wild Things Are

Are you as excited to see Spike Jonze’s adaptation of Where The Wild Things Are as I am? The movie stills look absolutely gorgeous and the songs composed by Karen O seem as wild and fun as I hope the entire project will be. For the soundtrack, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs frontwoman enlisted “The Kids,” composed of an untrained children’s choir along with many of her friends: Bradford Cox (Deerhunter), Brian Chase (Yeah Yeah Yeahs), Dean Fertita (Queens of the Stone Age, The Dead Weather, The Raconteurs), Aaron Hemphill (Liars), Greg Kurstin (The Bird and the Bee), Jack Lawrence (The Dead Weather, The Raconteurs, The Greenhornes), Imaad Wasif (New Folk Implosion, Alaska), Nick Zinner, (Yeah Yeah Yeahs) and more!

Those of you seeking further escapism will find adventure in the World-meets-Indie friendly acts including the anticipated debut from Fool’s Gold (our current Song of the Day podcast, in fact), the David Byrne-endorsed Forro in the Dark, the Brazilian stylings of Bebel Gilberto, and the groovy beats of Breakestra.

Those looking on our own dusty shores should pick up the latest from The Avett Brothers, Langhorne Slim, Richmond Fontaine, Frank Fairfield, and Cory Chisel and the Wandering Sons. And save a bit of your weekly allowance for the new releases by Zero 7, Ghostface Killah, Hope Sandoval & the Warm Inventions, 7 Worlds Collide.
