Title - 'Catch & Release' (Legacy)
Artist - Various
As much as the movie is a mainstream, Hollywood-churned out flick, the soundtrack most certainly isn't. Featuring - in many subtle pockets - mostly mellow songs by some of the finest cultured and upcoming American indie rock bands, the musical sibling to 'Catch & Release' is a truly fine work of art. Kicking off with the Foo Fighters' 'Razor,' the great songs just keep piling into your ears, with music from The Lemonheads ('My Drug Buddy'), Blinker The Star ('A Nest For Two'), The Magic Numbers ('Mornings Eleven'), and the quietly-focused 'Pills' by Gary Jules - he of the TFF 'Mad World' redo re: the also excellent 'Donnie Darko' soundtrack. And whilst Paul Westerberg's 'Let the Bad Times Roll' definitely sees him at his calmest, largely acoustic and gently paced, the CD does find a pulse with Audible's melodic 'Sky Signal.' And sure most of the tracks are from the mid-'00s, but isn't it great to hear the Lemonheads' 'My Drug Buddy' ('92) once again, and cystal clear? Anyhoo, buy this CD today and begin relaxing to it immediately!
