Grizzly Bear Soundtrack New Philip Seymour Hoffman Film
Published Jan 27, 2010We previously reported that baroque rock sensations Grizzly Bear had contributed the music to Blue Valentine, a film starring Ryan Gosling that premiered earlier this week at the Sundance Film Festival. Now, reports have surfaced that the Brooklyn band have contributed music to yet another new film: Jack Goes Boating, a movie directed by and starring Oscar winner Philip Seymour Hoffman.
As news breaker TwentyFourBit points out, it's unclear exactly how much of the soundtrack the group is responsible for, since they share their music credit with composer Evan Lurie (Lounge Lizards). According to the Hollywood Reporter's review of film, it features "a gentle, piano-centric score by Even Lurie coupled with the feathery, cerebral harmonies of the Brooklyn band Grizzly Bear."
Variety, meanwhile, has a slightly different take on the soundtrack, offering the following credits: "music, Grizzly Bear; additional music, Evan Lurie." This information is presumably taken from the official credits provided by the studio, and suggests that the band may be responsible for more than the Hollywood Reporter is aware.
Check out the clip below to hear some of that "gentle, piano-centric score."
Between Grizzly Bear's two soundtrack contributions and Animal Collective's new movie ODDSAC, there sure seems to be plenty of indiecentric treats for music fans this year at Sundance.
