Laura Barrett and José Miguel Contreras 'Porch Stories' OST' (album stream)
Published Jun 10, 2015Toronto musicians Laura Barrett (Hidden Cameras, Sheezer) and José Miguel Contreras (By Divine Right) have long been staples in the Canadian music scene, but as previously reported, the pair recently tested out their acting chops in the Sarah Goodman-directed film Porch Stories.
Sticking to something a little more familiar, the duo also composed the soundtrack to the film. We've already heard the album's lead single "You," but now Exclaim! is giving you an exclusive first listen to the entire soundtrack.
The 13-song set offers up an array of instrumental pieces, which bring together the magical sounds of the kalimba with Spanish guitar. Tracks like "Trinity Bellwoods," "Late Night on the Porch" and "Hamburgers, Parades, and Questions," meanwhile, share sweet musical moments from the film that incorporate the characters' dialogue.
It's a sweet, soft-sounding collection of songs that is sure to add whimsy and romance to the movie. Porch Stories debuts at the TIFF Bell Lightbox in Toronto on June 19, while the soundtrack arrives on June 16 via Hand Drawn Dracula. Until then, stream it in its entirety in the player below.
