Published Mar 10, 2009When it comes to soundtracks, Jim Jarmusch has a pretty impressive track record. Wu-Tang's RZA did the director's Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai, Neil Young was on board for Dead Man, Tom Waits for Night on Earth and Ethiopian jazz maestro Mulatu Astatke did much of Broken Flowers. Well, Jarmusch has a new movie coming at us, The Limits of Control, and once again he's roped in quite the awesome musical troupe for the soundtrack: Japan's ambient sludgemeisters Boris.
Look closely at the credits for the newly released trailer for The Limits of Control and you'll see the line "with music by Boris," confirming the band are involved in the project but stopping short of saying they actually scored the film. And while it's unclear yet what Boris have lent to this upcoming Spanish crime epic, as The Playlist reports, a few of the band's fellow drone-loving metalmen are also on board for the soundtrack, including Earth and SUNN O))).
There's no tracklisting yet for The Limits of Control or word if an accompanying soundtrack will get a physical release. However, the film itself is due out on May 22. And after watching that trailer, it definitely looks like a movie to start getting excited about.
